I am running Ubuntu 11.10 and have downloaded and unpacked the JDK tarball:
I have downloaded tomcat7 from the apache archive site:
I have unpacked the tarball into
then updated dot.bash_profile with:
CATALINA_HOME=/usr/share/apache-tomcat-7.0.27 CATALINA_BASE=/usr/share/apache-tomcat-7.0.27 JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk188.8.131.52
After reboot, I still cannot get Tomcat running using:
gksudo service tomcat7 start
which the only response from terminal is to enter root password and then:
which is the prompt.
What am I missing?
