Oracle 11.2 XE on Ubuntu 12.04

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.

    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.
