There are just a couple of discrepancies when using Ubuntu:

1) root doesn't really exist;

2) "sudo source env.sh", which I had expected to use as the nearest
equivalent, didn't understand source as a command.  However,
"source env.sh" /was/ understood - albeit that's of course executed
as ordinary user, not what the docs say to do.

Does this mean I've missed something else?

Dave
