In Topic: Oracle on Bodhi, Bodhacle?

21 November 2017 - 02:34 PM

So I've just set up Oracle 11g R2 Express Edition and SQL Developer and it works fine.

I've followed two quick tutorials and it took me ~60 minutes. It could take longer on a slower machine if anyone's interested in Oracle databases on Bodhi. It's not an overly complicated installation process and its new user friendly.

After installing Oracle 11g, Bodhi will register it in your start menu under Applications/Other and you can simply click on Start Database or Stop Database. Your SQL Developer will not be registered under the application menu but you can run it by simply writing sqldeveloper in your terminal.


The links are as follows:

Note: Oracle XE (32-bit) installer can also be downloaded from (http://1drv.ms/1vMWia6)which is the authors cloud storage, I haven't used it so, it isn't checked.

There's also the Cunningham's law which states "the best way to get the right answer on the internet is not to ask a question; it's to post the wrong answer."

A point to add. If you want to access the window property of a window, you can usually do it with a right click. Should you be using a browser (for instance Chrome), it wont let you access the menu. Then you press Alt+right click and you can choose a bunch of options from the window submenu.

In Topic: Applications that are not in the App Center

18 May 2017 - 09:31 AM

Obviously, I'm not that Linux proficient yet, but I've noticed that when i want to install a program that I can't seem to find on the App center, the first thing I'd do is literally this:

1. Open up the terminal

2. Type in the name of the package or a variation of it

3. ???

So if I know I want to install Synaptic, but I'm not sure how to, I type in Synaptic. The next thing you know, my terminal tells me the proper way to address it.

qwertzy@bodhi-buddha:~$ synaptic
The program 'synaptic' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt install synaptic
qwertzy@bodhi-buddha:~$ thank you terminal!

Best of luck in the fields of Linux!
