I am a newbie in using Ubuntu (more precisely never used linux except the production deployment ). Now I choose to hold a grip on the system and intalled a latest 11.10 Ubuntu in my 32 bit Intel** desktop. In this machine **I have a 'administrator' user 'tusar'.
I want to install the PostgreSQL graphical version so downloaded this file postgresql-8.4.9-1-linux.bin from here
Now If run the file with
./filename command (refuses if I am not root), it opens up the graphical interface and completes the installation (creates user postgres and ask for password, wont complete if I dont give valid password).
I checked with
/etc/inint.d/postgresql-8.4 status , that postgres is running.
But the problem is I am unable to open the GUI (I installed it in
/opt/Postgresql ), its telling permission denied even if I am logged in as 'tusar'. Then I tried using the
su postgres command and it directly changed the user without password. Now if I run the psql , createdb , its prompting me to install the postgres-client-package but this utilies are already installed and I can view them in my
I can run query through my JDBC utility programs but unable to use neither terminal nor the graphical interface (although I can see pgAdmin3 is there ). Urgent help needed.
I have used this guide for the installation.
