comment Run program from anywhere without changing directory
Although you're right in general, for this specific question OP was visibly trying to run from the absolute path (just with a one-character mistake). However, I'm sure they can clarify if working directory is important in this case.

comment Any command line calculator for Ubuntu?
You can use bc interactively as well, unless you need the echo for some other reason: just run bc and type your expression. Type Ctrl-D on its own line to exit.

comment What advantages does Ubuntu have as an environment for programming?
Yes, but you have to fetch each application's installer manually: the fact they use the same installer inside doesn't buy you much (it saves them some effort). That's not the same as a built-in package manager.

you can usually copy by just selecting, and paste by just clicking the middle mouse button, unless the defaults changed recently

comment Error in executing a command in Ubuntu
Well, it looks like it's trying to execute some program, but the error doesn't show what. If strace shows a call to fork returning an error, your box may be out of resources (too many processes, or too little memory). If it shows a call to exec failing, the child program failed to start for some reason. If it doesn't show a call to exec at all, it probably means the child program couldn't be found in the first place.
