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

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.

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 :: .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 :: GNU/screen Not Setting $STY

Jan 25, 2011

I'm trying to script the spawning of GNU/screen windows by using commands of the form screen <CMD>.

For some reason when I start GNU/screen (by hand), the shell that it starts in window 0 (/bin/bash) does not contain a $STY environment variable. Without this commands like screen vim start a nested screen session, not another window as I want.

My environment is somewhat unusual. Here's how I end up in it:

ssh robm@somehost
sudo su sharedaccount
script /dev/null

The script /dev/null step exists because the TTY device allocated for the robm user cannot be accessed by the sharedaccount user. The script command allocates a new TTY that is owned by the user that invoked it, solving that problem.

If I skip the sudo and script steps, GNU/screen sets $STY just fine. In other words this works just fine:

ssh robm@somehost

Presumably something about sudo and script interferes with screen

General :: Setting Up A Network In Lab?

Nov 10, 2010

I work in a small research lab in my college and we work on Windows. I am planning to switch all the computers into Linux create a network.

This is a small job in the first step. I need to hook up 3 computers together such that they all communicate with a central computer (server). The users will have to log on to their accounts and run their work from the central server, be able to run applications (vlsi, CAD) stuff from the server. I (as root) should be able to take backups (using crontab I guess) and be able to create new users, administer.

Can anyone direct me to a manual or a website or a previous post that goes through these steps. I searched the forums and was lost in my effort

I only have used Linux on a standalone PC and have never networked before.

General :: Setting Up An OS For Custom In Car PC?

Oct 24, 2009

Basically the computer will have to do nothing other than run some custom software that interfaces with the vehicle's systems via a USB FDTI board and render to an 8" touch screen via OpenGL. User input will be via the said touchscreen, and audio output will eventually come into the equation. The target vehicle(s) will be extensively modified for the project, and I'm hoping the software will eventually override features such as the immobiliser, so an extremely fast boot time will be essential.

I have one of those Via C7 fully integrated mini ITX motherboards, much of the onboard hardware will be useless besides two USB ports and a SATA port, so could be completely removed from the kernel if necessary to achieve a fast boot. If some BIOS hacking is required I'd happily look at that too. I'm a recently graduated software engineer, and can comfortably use Linux (I'm using openSUSE for developing the software) but don't have a clue where to start with the OS; if I should be downloading and modifying an existing distro or trying to build one from scratch somehow?

General :: Setting Up A Second Monitor In Centos?

Nov 16, 2010

I have CentOS installed on my laptop. I hooked up my TV via VGA and it works, just not as I'd like it to. The left side (on the tv) is cut off, like the image is justified too far left. I want it to be centered, but I also want to use a different resolution. You see, I use a netbook, and thus my laptop screen is tiny, meaning some things cant fit in the same window without scrolling. I want my TV to fix that for me.
