What you haven't said is how you got that error.  My assumption is
that you've run '/etc/init.d/interchange start'.  This file is
intended to be run at boot time by root.  It then starts the
interchange daemon as the interchange user.  My assumption is that you
tried to run that script as a normal user and couldn't.  The moral of
the story is that you should run /etc/init.d/interchange as root
(using 'sudo' works well).
