Hi
You can't use;


su - <user> -c "your command"?

Plase also note these forums are staffed by volunteers, if it's urgent
you can always raise a Support Request.

Hi
Can you not login as your normal user? Running a root gui can cause
issues.

AFAIK the oracle user doesn't need a login shell, commands are run via a
command line shell?

If you run YaST and check in the user/groups screen and see what groups
the oracle user belongs too.

All changes may open up security issues with your oracle data....
