>SP2-0750: You may need to set ORACLE_HOME to your Oracle software directory

the second message tells you what is wrong.
ORACLE_HOME variable is not set, so oracle cannot find the message file ...


how It can be achieved>

export ORACLE_HOME=/path where  your oracle database software is installed

If you have set up /etc/oratab properly then:
export ORACLE_SID=orcl
. oraenv

If you want orcl to be the 'default' then: export ORAENV_ASK=NO

This not only setups up ORACLE_HOME but adds $ORACLE_HOME/bin to your PATH.
