Error installing cordova with npm under ubuntu 15.10

If you try install cordova like this :

npm install -g cordova

And you have some access file error :

npm ERR! tar.unpack untar error /home/user/.npm/cordova/5.4.0/package.tgz

You can just fix the group of files, and try again with sudo (because in the end, a symlink is created to /usr/bin/[…] )

sudo chown user:user -R /usr/local/lib/node_modules/
sudo chown -R user:user  /home/user/.npm

I don’t know if it’s the best way, and I don’t know if it’s ok for a production env, in my case, it’s just dev/play env 🙂
