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

Fedora :: .bash_profile Is Sourced Rather Than .bashrc?

Jan 17, 2010

I am curious since "Run command as a login shell" is UNTICKED (I think for all new users) under Gnome Terminal -> Menu Bar -> Profiles -> Edit -> Title and Command , BUT .bash_profile is sourced. I thought .bashrc should be sourced instead ?

General :: Where Exactly Is JAVA_HOME?

Jul 28, 2010

Tomcat installation requires JAVA_HOME to be defined. In Windows it is straight forward. But in Linux binaries are in one folder and libraries are in other folder.

Is there a way to find out where exactly is JAVA_HOME?

General :: How To Set JAVA_HOME Properly

Jan 10, 2009

I have problems with setting my JAVA_HOME variable. I am using Slackware 12.0, bash shell. I have set JAVA_HOME in my /etc/profile, like this:

But when I login in with my user name and type env on the command line, I get for JAVA_HOME the following:

Also, in my /etc/profile I have put the path to my java in the PATH variable, like this:

And when I type env when I login, then the PATH variable contains correctly the path to the jdk (as I have put it into /etc/profile).

I expect that after I have set everything as I want in /etc/profile, and restart the computer then what I have set will be relevant and when I login and type env, I will get values to the variables equal to those I have set in /etc/profile. Why it does not happen?

I have particularly a problem with a Java application, which I want to run. When I type ant, I get: error: JAVA_HOME is not defined correctly.

We cannot execute /usr/lib/java/bin/java.

Fedora :: Add Path In .bashrc By Commenting Out Old Path And Adding New One - Command Source ~/bashrc

Jun 14, 2011

When I add some path in .bashrc by commenting out old path and adding new one like this:

#EXPORT HOME_PLAY=/home/gem/old_play
EXPORT HOME_PLAY=/home/gem/play

After saving above changes, I enter the command: source ~/.bashrc Now if I do echo $PATH, the path shows both the old PLAY_HOME and new PLAY_HOME. This is really bad and messes up a lot of things in my project. This problem only goes away if I logout or reboot, a rather very long process. What is happening is that the old path is added to new path element and the old path includes the old path element you want to remove.

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 :: Echo Function In .bashrc?

Feb 25, 2010

I'd like a function in my .bashrc file that would allow me to pass text to it and echo the text to a specified file. I know it's simple as "echo 'text' >> file," but ideally, I would want to alias the function so I execute something like:

user~ $ write 'this is a test' with "write" being the function, and 'this is a test' being echoed to the file. I hope I explained that well enough.

General :: .profile/.bashrc Not Being Read?

Apr 5, 2010

A cluster with a head node and compute nodes. An application with a couple of env variables (App_HOME, PATH) set in .profile (default shell sh). If I login to the head node/compute nodes on a terminal everything works fine. The correct env variables are set and the application works. However, when my application tries to do it, say ssh <compute node1> <application>, it appears the environment variables are not available. It only looks in the minimal /bin, /usr/bin type PATH. This tells that the .profile is not being read

General :: Escape Commands In A Bashrc Alias?

Sep 17, 2010

I need to occasionally touch a file with the current timestamp as the filename. I would do so this way:

touch `date "+%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M"`.txt

However, I'd like to define an alias for this. When I try adding to the bashrc this:

alias td="touch `date "+%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M"`.txt"

the result is that the filename is the same during the entire session, since the `date ..` gets calculated just once during login...

How can I get the command to expand only when I call the alias? Or must I use a function for this?

General :: Variable Expansion In .bashrc Not Working?

Feb 21, 2011

In my .bashrc file, I am attempting to set JAVA_PATH to a local path, using the HOME environment variable or '~' symbol as shown in the following examples.Using ${HOME}

export JAVA_PATH='${HOME}/Software/java/jdk1.6.0_24'

When I attempt to use ${JAVA_HOME} in a my ${PATH} javec is not found. To debug it, I tried a simple ls command:


and get the following error:

ls: ${HOME}/Software/java/jdk1.6.0_24/: No such file or directory

Using '~': Trying to use '~' symbol as follows:

export JAVA_PATH='~/Software/java/jdk1.6.0_24'

the ls command results in the same error, however javac is found.I prefer the '~' symbol anyway, but would like to understand why the ls command does not work for either, and why it seems as though ${HOME} is not being expanded.

General :: Get Path Of Sourced Bashrc File?

Feb 11, 2011

I want to assign the path of a sourced sub.bashrc file to an environment variable. E.g. if I type (or execute) from a known relative location

$ source ../../someDir/sub.bashrc

the sub.bashrc should set a variable like

export MyOwnLocation=/home/user1/unknownlocation/someDir

The problem is I can't use $0 as reference because the script is only sourced not executed. I also don't want to hardcode the path because the location might change and there will be more copies. Is there an easy way to create this information from within the the sourced bashrc file? I use Gnu bash 2.05b on Suse Linux 9.
