Your problem seems to be a python problem. command-not-found is a python program that runs when a command is not found on the system.
Have you installed python manually? What does the command which python return?

Try running the following in the python interpreter:

Code: Select all

me@my-pc ~ $ python
Python 2.7.3 (default, Sep 26 2012, 21:51:14)
[GCC 4.7.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys
>>> sys.path
['', '/usr/lib/python2.7', '/usr/lib/python2.7/plat-linux2', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-tk', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-old', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload', '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/PIL', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gst-0.10', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gtk-2.0', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ubuntu-sso-client']

So the problem is you have set your PATH to only include these android directories. Hence system commands like cat and python can no longer be found, as you have excluded them from your path. Normally your path would be:

Code: Select all

/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games

Can you recall what you did, e.g. where did you change the PATH settings. Revert that change.

You can correct the path at least for your terminal with:

Code: Select all

export PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games"
