Thank you so much for the help.
I tried that solution, but when I type 'echo $CATALINA_HOME' at the command prompt I get a blank return.

I'd like to mention that Tomcat documentation, so far, has not provide any information regarding my question. Perhaps if the Apache Technical Writers could have a look at this question they, the Apache teem in general, could resolve this drawback by adding a bit more information regarding this issue in the Tomcat documentation.

I have used Tomcat/Eclipse in the past under Windows, where my sound experience with MS-Win helped me resolve whatever settings I was asked to provide. However, being a new comer to Linux, this advantage is nearly zero.

I really don't want to go back to MS-Win, rather, I want to move ahead and augment my knowledge of Linux.

I have not used Netbeans for long times. Probably you can try to find where
CATALINA_HOME is pointing to. Normally that's the base of Tomcat in any

1. Start your Tomcat server from Netbeans
2. After that use ps and grep command to search for text "catalina". It'll
be something like:

ps aux | grep catalina
