[OSGeoLive] Start of geoserver in OSGeoLive 12

I can reproduce this failure. For some reason, the user "user" is not a 
member of the "users" group on the vmdk. This prevents GeoServer from 
writing to its data directory and causes GeoServer to fail to start.

You can fix your vmdk with the following one-time procedure:

(1) Start a terminal.

(2) Run "sudo adduser user users".

(3) To apply this change to your desktop session, you need to either 
restart the virtual machine or log out and log back in (username "user", 
password "user").

GeoServer should now start normally.

The iso image is not affected by this problem.

Kind regards,
