It tells me command not found etc. I need to manually execute the profile file. I have multiple oracle versions installed on a single server, require the account profile to be executed along with the sudo -u <oraclex> <command>.  Let me know if I have some solution / workaround.

Maybe `evn_keep' will help ?
Looks like some environment variable is not passed to your shell.

	Defaults:oracle10 env_keep="ORACLE_HOME"
