If you want to make it easier, use the Easy Connect syntax so you don't need a tnsnames.ora file or to set TNS_ADMIN.
Your script says you did this in a Ubuntu VM on Mac. Do you have equivalent script for using the Mac version of Oracle Instant Client?
I was planning to try to develop it also for mac in the next days but I have to see if everything will work properly.
Meanwhile I made a video demo about the installation on Ubuntu
In the time it took me to bookmark the video, it became "unavailable" before I'd completed watching it.
Are you re-doing it?
You can try again as it should work now...
This could be the start of a great series!
In the intro, the in-video explanation text could say where the files come from and what they do.
Over half of the video consists of updating Ubuntu packages (e.g the kernel!) - this makes the video harder to follow and makes the installation seem harder than it really is. It also doesn't match the statement that the OS has been installed. If viewers think the install requires a lot of extra files and OS changes, you might frighten people from doing the install.
Setting the root password and not disabling it again is not the best example of security. Why not just "sudo gnome-terminal" or "sudo xterm" ?
For visual clarity, I'd suggest removing the window translucency.
Thank you for your feedback. I will try to make a new video soon.
I preferred to record everything including the updates of the packages cause in case of error during the installation it would be possible to compare what happen in the video.
Now I don't know if it would be better to delete that part, maybe would be enough to speed it up a bit more.
Delete it :)

translucency removed, boring part deleted
I didn't disable the root account at the end cause it seem that there can be a problem after to re-enable it.
I tried to edit the script to let it work on mac, everything end without errors but I cannot get the OCI module visible.
