You can change the ownership of the files in the Stata directory to
yourself. Assuming that Stata is installed in /usr/local/stata11, a
brute force solution is 

$ cd /usr/local
$ find stata11* -exec sudo chown kohler '{}' ';'

Many regards

PS: Thanks Michael for  http://xkcd.com/149/ . I will try that out this
evening with my 16 years old son ;-)
