Installing Oracle Database Express Edition 11g on UBUNTU

Hello everyone,

 

I want to install Oracle Database Express Edition 11g on UBUNTU. I followed the steps from this link created by Dude:

https://forums.oracle.com/thread/2303639?start=0&tstart=0

 

My problem becomes when I type in from the terminal:

 

sudo /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure

 

I followed the instructions there, agreeing t HTTP port 8080, port database listener 1521,  specifying a password for my database account, and wanting Oracle Express to be started on boot. This is what I'm getting:

 

Starting Oracle Net Listener...touch: cannot touch `/var/lock/subsys/listener': No such file or directory
Done
Configuring database...
Database Configuration failed.  Look into /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/config/log for details

 

I have no idea what this means, so I went into the log's location and I found 4 of them, so I clicked on each of them, and this is what I'm getting:

 

1. cloneDBCreation.log:

Can somebody that knows this, or has installed Oracle Express on Ubuntu, to please explain it to me what does it mean and why am I getting those errors. Please explain thoroughly as if I am an amateur person, IN DETAIL, STEP-BY-STEP. I want to run it and make it work! I heard that it encourages people to answer for points. I am open for your suggestions and experiences, as long as it's not 'use common sense', 'you're dumb', or an answer that is vaguely explained.  Thank you for those that take the time to read it.
