    I'm not familiar with linux but In our environment (UNIX) during compilation
    we use
    cat /dba/oracle/product/oas_10.1.2/bin/
    that contains
      # You should not normally need to modify these settings.
      if [ `uname -s` = 'SunOS' ]; then
        export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
      elif [ `uname -s` = 'HP-UX' ]; then
          export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
      elif [ `uname -s` = 'Linux' ]; then
        export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    the ORACLE_HOME points to the home of the application server (ORACLE_HOME=/dba/oracle/product/oas_10.1.2)

    the FORMS_PATH  points to the directories of the  pll-libraries
    the current directory during our compilation is the directory containing the fmb

    In EBS R12, you cannot simply use the basic Oracle Forms10 compile program to compile *.fmb files that are part of EBS, like you could if you had a custom app that used Oracle Forms10.  There is a special EBS executable (it might be in the $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME of the application server) that you have to use for this task.

    after all path setting
    i fire frmcmp_batch command through putty
    but it shows compilation time error

    [user@wayne ~]$ $ORACLE_HOME/frmcmp_batch /home/oracle/form/US/Template_Tax_Link.fmb userid=apps/apps output_file=/home/oracle/form/US/Template_Tax_Link.fmx module_type=form compile_all=SPECIAL

    /perf_ap/perf/apps/tech_st/10.1.2/bin/frmcmp_batch: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    You have to use the "adadmin" utility in EBS R12 to recompile a form.  In our system, that utility is in: $APPL_CONFIG_HOME/ad/12.0.0/bin.
