@svanu40: You can add openhabian-config tool and install the Mosquitto broker. The tool will also handle all the permissions and lots of other nice features as well.

It’s simple to install:

# install git
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git

# download and link
sudo git clone /opt/openhabian
sudo ln -s /opt/openhabian/ /usr/local/bin/openhabian-config

# execute
sudo openhabian-config

A link to the doc’s for the tool:
