Slackware :: .bash_profile, "-bash: export: Command Not Found"?

Dec 31, 2010

I was trying to get rid of qtconfig's error message "QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.".

So I created the file ~/.gtkrc-2.0 with this content:

Then I had to read this file after logging in (or at least, when I start X. So I created a ~/.bash_profile file with the following line:

export GTK2_RC_FILES="$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0"
When I now login, I get this message:
-bash: export: command not found
Any idea what could cause this problem?

I am running Slackware 13.1.

General :: Edit The .bash_profile Being A Normal User In Red Hat?

Feb 18, 2011

I have installed Oracle Database server in Red Hat Linux for the first time. I edited the .bash_profile first time & defined some parameters like "export ORACLE_SID =orcl".I quit the editing. Then When I entered ". .bash_profile" it got error " not a valid identifier" it shows like "bash: export: '=orcl' : not a valid identifier for all the lines I edited it shows same error beacause I think I put a space in between "ORACLE_SID" & "=orcl".

So when I tried to edit that using "vi .bash_profile" being a normal user. It doesn't allow me editing.when I try to delete that space (because I think I have got error) using Backspace key on my computer,,it just moves the cursor to left in stead of deleting that space.

General :: Setting JAVA_HOME In .bash_profile Doesn't Work

Apr 15, 2009

I have some Flex and Java files which can be compiled with JDK1.5. My server was already loaded with 1.4 (at path /usr/bin/java) and our sys admin(I dont know why) copied another JDK, JDK 1.5 at path /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_16/. It seems very easy to use this java. Just set the path in .bash_profile. I did it and now if I run which java I still see the path for java 1.4 not java 1.5. Am I doing something wrong? Following is actual entry from bash_profile

I just installed slackware on my pc. The installation went fine (I think). When I am trying to turn the computer on, I am asked to type the "host login". As I can remember I didn't write any username, or password. But as it seems, I have to type this in to login. I tried with "root", then this comes up "root@host:^#" if this is right, what should I type here to get further...

Ubuntu :: How To Edit The .bash_profile

Mar 10, 2011

I have just started using ubuntu and use the terminal a lot.I would like to edit it(blue username).I have tried changing the .bash_profile file, but my changes do not seem to affect it.I also added an alias to bash.bashrc but my computer started looping at login I reinstalled. I dont know if that caused it (I doubt it, but I didnt do anything else, though undoing it didnt work). what to put in the .bash_profile file. It is currently blank, and nothing I add seems to work (using online tutorials).Using ubuntu 10.10 (netbook) and normal - I would like to edit the netbook edition, though I thought they would be the same.

Slackware :: Power Outage - Get "Login Problem, Please Login Manually" When Try Use KPackage

Aug 15, 2010

While I was installing some packages, the power in my street went out (uncleanly killing my system) ... unfortunately Kpackage was open at the time of the power outage. Now when I try to use KPackage, I get "Login Problem, Please Login Manually" ... which does not allow me to login using either the root or user's password. I have rebooted my computer many times and have even run a 'reiserfsck /dev/*** --fix-fixable' on my system, which did not repair the problem.

I have researched this error, but have only found responses that people suggest changing the KPackage behaviour from 'su' to 'sudo' ... ; while this does work, it feels like a 'putting-a-band-aid-over-a-warning-light-so-I-can't-see-the-warning-light-anymore' kind of 'fix?' which isn't good as it would enable anyone using the system to add or remove packages without thought or consequence. What I would prefer to do is actually fix the problem so that proper root password entering is again required to add or remove packages, so my question is:

1. Does anyone know if KPackage 'locks' out a file(s) on the system which may be preventing me from logging into the program correctly, and if so what and where the file(s) may be?

2. Can I delete any kpackage (profile?) file to gain normal login behaviour again?

3. Is this a permissions error?, has something in users/groups? been broken that I can look into?

4. how I may be able to properly repair this KPackage login problem on my system?

Ubuntu :: Running An App Without Login?

Apr 21, 2010

I have a ubuntu 9.10 machine which is left 24/76, as my "download server". I have Vuze/Azureus installed, which I control mainly through the HTML UI, so rarely log into the machine.

Currently, when the machine restarts (not often) I have to log in via NeatX, and run Vuze. I then disconnect, and use the HTML UI.

Is it possible to set Vuze to run automatically, on startup, without the neeed to log in ? If I did this, where exactly would it be running ? As what user ? And what would happen if I then logged in, and ran it in a session ?
