I've also seen this when the permissions were not set correctly on the oracle install. I had to chmod -R 755 the entire ORACLE_HOME directory because the group and world permissions were set incorrectly. I'm on Solaris 10.  

I found this fix from metalink note 356850.1.

PATH setting? I think I've seen this if an "older" ORACLE_HOME is in your path before the newer one.

I can't use sqlplus in Unix as a normal user. It gives the below error. My oracle home is /usr/local/oracle/product/ Kindly suggest

bash#/usr/local/oracle/product/> sqlplus Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
SP2-0750: You may need to set ORACLE_HOME to your Oracle software directory

bash#/usr/local/oracle/product/> env | grep ORACLE_HOME ORACLE_HOME=/usr/local/oracle/product/
