Thanks, Chet! 

I installed bashdb through Synaptic Package Manager of my Ubuntu 8.10 and it
was installed into /usr/share/bashdb/, /usr/bin/, /usr/lib/ etc. Not sure
these could be found by bash.

How to know if DEBUGGER_START_FILE is defined in pathnames.h and define it
this way if not?

Also I ried one suggestion found with Google:
"To see if your standard bash executable has bashdb support, execute the
command shown below; if you are not taken to a bashdb prompt then you'll
have to install bashdb yourself. $ bash --debugger -c "set|grep -i dbg" " 
I am not taken to bashdb prompt and instead get
"BASH_EXECUTION_STRING='set|grep -i dbg'". So I guess my bashdb is not set
up properly?
