    Oracle 11.2 XE on Ubuntu 12.04

    sherrera

      Hello,

       

       

      I'm having issues with users logging into Oracle. I installed it on Ubuntu 12.04 running Oracle 11.2 XE.  If i am root, i can run sqlplus just fine and log in. But when I use a regular user account and run sqlplus, it will just stay blank. No error messages or any feedback. I echo $ORACLE_HOME and echo $ORACLE_SID and they come back exactly as they do under the root account. My path is set up just like root has it. 

       

       

      It almost seems like a permission issue but even when i try sqlplus /nolog it stays blank.  If it helps, i followed the instructions from

          Please review the official installation guide (located here:   Oracle Database Preinstallation Requirements ) and show me where it lists Ubuntu as being a supported platform for installing Oracle Database.

           

          You read someone's blog instructions on how to hack an unsupported installation?  You get what you pay for.

           

          Can't Lie On The Internet - YouTube

           

          Actually, you get less than what you paid for it.  VirtualBox and Oracle Linux combined cost a total of US$0.00.

          Install Virtual Box on your Ubuntu machine, then create a virtual machine using a supported version of Linux, like Oracle Linux.

            It does seem to run just fine as sudo. I've never tired the Oracle Linux before only ubuntu. But I will give it a try under Oracle linux.
