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?
