Hi all,

I recently installed Oracle 10g on my Ubuntu 9.04 comp. After finally setting up all the environment variables to run sqlplus, I cannot run the command dbca. It just gives me the error

bash: dbca: command not found

I have found some other forum topics where people have similar issues, but none of their solutions worked for me. I tried setting the path variables to what they said would work, but it does not work for me. I will show what I have for my variables:

ORACLE_HOME=/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server

ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle (this is the path everyone said it should be, however the folder /u01 does not even exist on my machine)

For path, I tried appending a bunch of stuff to it (I know some of it probably isn't needed, but it hasn't affected my machine at all having all the extras)
PATH=/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/bin:/home/neal/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin/: /bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/bin:/prduct/oracle/10.2.0/bin:/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/admin /cfgtoologs/dbca


So that is what I am working with. Any information anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated! I found a couble dbca folders on the system but nothing is in them. Does that mean the install did not work properly?

Thanks in advance!!

It works for me.

bcm@bcm-laptop:~/bcm_old/sql$ which dbca
/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/bin/dbca
bcm@bcm-laptop:~/bcm_old/sql$ echo $PATH
/home/bcm/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/bin
bcm@bcm-laptop:~/bcm_old/sql$ echo $ORACLE_HOME
/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1
bcm@bcm-laptop:~/bcm_old/sql$ uname -a

I just remembered, dbca does not exist for XE, since it is licensed as single DB per server.

Which version of 10g do you have? Do you have the express edition? Is it possible to get a free version of Oracle that is better than the express version? I installed express and I read DBCA is not included in that.
