Ubuntu Tomcat Permission denied

I have installed Tomcat and it works find when I start it from the administrator account. However I created another account as "Desktop User" and when i try to start Tomcat I get the following on the terminal:developer@administrator-basic:/usr/local/lib/apache-tomcat-6.0.13/bin$ sh startup.sh
Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/local/lib/apache-tomcat-6.0.13

./catalina.sh: 338: cannot create /usr/local/lib/apache-tomcat-6.0.13/logs/catalina.out: Permission denied
developer@administrator-basic:/usr/local/lib/apache-tomcat-6.0.13/bin$A friend of mine suggested that i create a new User Group and use 'chown' on that user group so that I can have access to that folder. However this does not seem to work.

Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?
