Quite confuse when you want to re-install oracle-xe on Ubuntu. Struggling for several hours googling, I found this tip:
1. Run “sudo dpkg -P oracle-xe-universal” to get Ubuntu remove all the files as well as configuration files.
2. Delete folder: “/usr/lib/oracle/xe”
3. Restart the machine
4. Install the oracle-xe package.
5. Run “
sudo /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure" to have oracle-xe be setup
6. Access the nice Oracle web interface by pointing your Firefox to:
http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex to check if everything went fine...
7. Have fun…
