Ubuntu: hadoop command not found

I am trying to check my installation of hadoop. I did create the environment variables and when I call

, I do see my HADOOP_HOME and PATH variables printed and correct (home/hadoop and HADOOP_HOME/bin respectively).

If I go to home/hadoop in the terminal and call
, I see the hadoop file there. If I try to run it by calling
, it still tells me command not found.

First day on Linux, so there may be a stupid answer to this problem.

If you are in the same directory, where your hadoop file is, run that command with an relative path, like: ./hadoop
