Try going into /home/newuser and running the following command:
chown -R newuser.newuser *
This file recursivly makes the newuser the owner of the files.
I have a feeling that the files within the directory are not owned by
the new user hence the error message. Change newuser to the name of the
new account on your computer.
(Hope that works!)
