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

There are things that I want to have for all my users.For example, I want to set the java_home, the PATH, I want to mount a drive, etc ...I understand there is a .bash_profile file that does that, but it seems I need to copy the code for all users every time.Is there some kind of MASTER file that sets all those things before running the individual profile files?

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 :: Disable X From Loading ?

Nov 25, 2010

As a Security practice I wanted to disable X from loading.

So i modified following line from /etc/inittab.

I was then able to start my machine in terminal mode(runlevel 3).

I wasn't satisfied at this stage as i was able to get the graphical console by merely typing


So i search and find out that the reason for loading the graphical user interface was a script resided in


So i renamed it thinking OS will fail in finding it when invoked by inittab file . To my surprise i was able to get the terminal back even if i hit

But then i realize i keep on getting following error lines.


I found out the reason behind this was a line in /etc/inittab


Since the file prefdm was renamed and respawned the OS was keep on trying to execute it considering it is terminated.

Now i have made the above line commented and removed execute bit of the file. System is now behaving as i wish it would.

Will it make any difference? I m not using any application that explicitly use graphical user interface and i can work in runlevel 3.

General :: Puppy Loading Or Not ?

Jan 1, 2011

I have disks of Lucid Puppy 5.11 and MacPup 5.11. Both disks run very well on my laptop, an old 2001 model Sony Vaio which is already booting Ubuntu 10.04 UNE.

But neither finishes loading on my HP Pavilion a1020n desktop, which is running Windoze XP Home. They both bog down on looking for optical drives... interesting as I am loading them from CD and it reads the optical drives fine up to that point.

It's sad that a quick-loading portable Linux won't load at all on my newer, faster machine.

Maybe it's because the laptop has GRUB already? My HP chokes every time I try to modify the boot sector, lots of "wonderful" security features to keep Windoze from "getting corrupted".

General :: Firefox Extension Not Loading?

Mar 2, 2010

I am developing an extension for firefox that enables users to chat with any others who happen to be browsing the same website at the same time. The xul file adds a tool bar with a button "Enable Chat" in the browser toolbox. when a user clicks the Enable chat button, the server initiates the chat. I went through many tutorials for extension development. They have helped. But I cant seem to get my extension up properly. Ill just put up the contents of my files for extension..

/home/neethusha/extensions/blaze (blaze is the name of the extension)


I made the pointer to the extension in a file named "blazebutton" and saved it in the firefox profile folder "/home/neethusha/.mozilla/firefox/"

When i open the firefox in this profile, the extension is not loading...
