Helpful information regarding Notes 9/Sametime 9 on Ubuntu 13.10 64bit

2013/10/29

After fighting a bit again with IBM Notes 9 and Sametime Embedded 9 I have a few conclusions here

1) To install plugins using an updatesite

sudo chmod 777 -R /opt/ibm/notes/framework/*

– It seems permissions are set to tight to even install a dictionary. Why is it not installed in userland? I got provisioning error until I ran the command above. After provisioning is done and notes is restarted then do this: “sudo chmod 755 -R /opt/ibm/notes/framework/*”

2) To restart Notes use a kill script

Notes leaves processes running and refuse to restart – a bad habit, and here is the cure.

> cat noteskilllin.sh
ps aux | grep ibm | awk ‘{print $2}’ | xargs kill -9
ps aux | grep nsdexec | awk ‘{print $2}’ | xargs kill -9
ps aux | grep sametime_idlemon | awk ‘{print $2}’ | xargs kill -9
ps aux | grep sametime_mongss | awk ‘{print $2}’ | xargs kill -9

3) Here are the compatibility libraries for Notes 9 and Sametime 9 (remember you have to first hack the deb-files using instuctions found in earlier posts on this blog)

apt-get install libart-2.0-2:i386 libasound2:i386 libatk1.0-0:i386 libbonobo2-0:i386 libbonoboui2-0:i386 libc6:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libgcc1:i386 libgconf2-4:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libgnome2-0:i386 libgnomecanvas2-0:i386 libgnomeui-0:i386 libgnomevfs2-0:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libice6:i386 libjpeg62:i386 liborbit2:i386 libpam0g:i386 libpango1.0-0:i386 libpng12-0:i386 libpopt0:i386 libsm6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxcursor1:i386 libxext6:i386 libxft2:i386 libxi6:i386 libxkbfile1:i386 libxml2:i386 libxp6:i386 libxrender1:i386 libxss1:i386 libxt6:i386 libxtst6:i386 libz1:i386  libz1:i386 gtk2-engines-murrine:i386 gtk2-engines-murrine murrine-themes  libgnomeprintui2.2-0:i386 libgnomeprint2.2-0:i386

4) I cannot get Sametime 9 to use Audio/Video and I cannot give out control in Instant Share

The Instant Share problem is well known and shared with Mac users, I hoped that they fixed it in version 9. But the Audio/Video-stuff is a bit saddening, have anybody got embedded Sametime 9 to work with Audio/Video?

Please share your experiences here or link to where other users share their experiences.

5) sametime-connect-embedded-9.0-20130911.1645.i386.deb and sametime-connect-embedded-core-9.0-20130911.1645.i386.deb

Applications that I use in Linux

2013/09/04

A collegue asked me to write down which applications in Linux that I use. Here is the list:

  1. Firefox
    • I prefer it to Chromium because of the addons which have higher quality then their Chromium counterpart. Also I like Mozilla as an organization more than I like Google.
  2. Virtualbox
    • In my work I have to use a couple of windows applications. Since Wine only run some windows apps good enough this is my only alternative. I really really like Virtualbox, it is free and easy to install. Also VM:s can easily be exported/imported across several platforms
  3. IBM Notes
    • This is the Collaboration application at work. I like it a lot. But it is really buggy on Linux if you are not running the exact supported version (which I almost never do).
  4. Shutter
    • For screenshots and it is easy to edit/crop them directly from the application.
  5. Filezilla
    • Great FTP application. Easy to handle and it is threaded (multiple downloads/upload).
  6. Wine
    • The best thing with wine is that I can copy the “.wine” folder from one Linux installation to another and keep all applications/configurations.
    • From Wine I can run
      1. A windows only dictonary I frequently use
      2. IBM Notes Administrator, but it crashes
      3. Other simpler windows softwares
  7. Remmina
    • Remote Desktop application that has preconfigured connections to quickly connect. It is a bit buggy though and I have to reconnect but that is not a major issue.
  8. Kate
    • Similar to Notepad++ with a lot of extensions and other things to improve usability when handling textfiles. Also good when writing simple scripts.

KDE is my new favourite

2013/08/30

I have been an active Ubuntu user for 6 years now. I have been using its default desktop. It is stable and has some advantages but it is also a bit boring.

A week ago I switched to Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit, still in alpha.The KDE version is 4.11 and is working very well.

What is good about KDE (k)ompared to standard Ubuntu unity desktop?

1) Looks: Looks way better than Unity/Gnome 3. On par with Linux Mints MATE desktop.

2) Plasmoids: They work way better than in earlier versions of KDE 4.X. I use:

* favouries launcher: Gives a nice application start menu when right clicking on the desktop

* yaWP: Weather prediction

* Some of the built-in plasmoids for CPU, MEM, DISK, NET monitoring, Folder viewer etc

3) Yakuake. Drop down shell. Press F12 and it is there. Again and it is gone.

4) Clementine: Great looking music player

5) Dolphin: Great file manager. Nautilus is also good, but Dolphin has some advantages.

6) Krunner: Press Alt-F2 to start applications or use any of the plugins

7) Short-Cuts: CTRL-ESC for task manager, CTRL-Alt-Esc for kill window.

What is missing:

Some bugs (alpha of Ubuntu). More apps should be based on QT instead of GTK2 in my opinion. Example: Firefox, Filezilla, Shutter, Wine (Gtk2 right?), IBM Notes etc, apps that I use everyday. That would offer a better looking desktop experience and less resources would be needed.

Favourites launcher: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=117639

IBM Notes 9 on Ubuntu 13.10 Alpha 64bit

2013/08/30

I did an upgrade of Ubuntu from 13.04 64bit to 13.10 64bit where IBM Notes 9 stopped working.

After some try and error I finally got it working again after installing some compatibility libraries. These I selected to remove during upgrade (Ubuntu asked nicely if it could remove these and I accepted by mistake)

Install this:

sudo apt-get install libgnomeprint2.2-0:i386 libgnomeprintui2.2-0:i386 unzip:i386  libart-2.0-2:i386 libasound2:i386 libatk1.0-0:i386 libbonobo2-0:i386 libbonoboui2-0:i386 libc6:i386  libfontconfig1:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libgcc1:i386 libgconf2-4:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libgnome2-0:i386 libgnomecanvas2-0:i386 libgnomeui-0:i386 libgnomevfs2-0:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libice6:i386 libjpeg62:i386 liborbit2:i386 libpam0g:i386 libpango1.0-0:i386 libpng12-0:i386 libpopt0:i386 libsm6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxcursor1:i386 libxext6:i386 libxft2:i386 libxi6:i386 libxkbfile1:i386 libxml2:i386 libxp6:i386 libxrender1:i386 libxss1:i386 libxt6:i386 libxtst6:i386 zlib1g:i386 alsa-base:i386 alsa-utils:i386

Now it was up and running again!
Since I am using KDE. To get a less blocky IBM Notes it could be a good idea to install:
apt-get install gtk2-engines-qtcurve:i386

And then set this theme in the System Settings.

Do not use oxygen-gtk as a theme since IBM Notes might crash after a few minutes if this theme is used. Se more info here:

3) dpkg -i –force-all ibm-notes-9.0.i586.deb

4) dpkg -i –force-all ibm-sametime-9.0.i586.deb

Easier than ever! :-)Thank you IBM!

I am looking for a solution…

[Update 2]

I had to uninstall and edit the deb-files and rebuild the deb-files, otherwise the dependencies in apt-get uninstalls Notes again. There is plenty of instructions to do this in previous entries in this blog.

[Update 3]

To install OnTime Team-at-a-glance plugin do this:

sudo chmod 777 -R /opt/ibm/notes/framework/shared/eclipse/

sudo chmod 777 -R /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/deploy/

When done do this:

sudo chmod 755 -R /opt/ibm/notes/framework/shared/eclipse/

sudo chmod 755 -R /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/deploy/

Quick install guide: Installing Notes 9 beta on Ubuntu Raring Ringtail 64bit beta1

2013/03/16

Great news everybody. Notes 9 is easier then ever to install on latest Ubuntu daily build. This could mean that final IBM Notes 9 which will be released on 21st of March will be easy to install on final Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail 64 bit.

Here is how I did it on a fresh install (I am reusing information from old posts):

root@blackbox:/home/anders/Downloads/UbuntuNotes9# ls -la
total 468500
drwxrwxr-x 2 anders anders      4096 jan 26 13:27 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 anders anders      4096 mar 10 19:57 ..

-rw-rw-r– 1 anders anders  79614910 jan 26 13:16 ibm-sametime-9.0.i586.deb

1) dpkg -i -force-all ibm-notes-9.0.i586.deb

Will give error, remedy is:

2) nano /var/lib/dpkg/info/ibm-notes.postinst

Comment out this part like example below:

#  if [ -f "$1/rcp/collectionutility.jar" ]; then
#    func_installLog “– Running collector with the following command:”
#    func_installLog “– $COLLECTORCOMMAND”
#    $COLLECTORCOMMAND
#  fi

3)

ln -s /opt/ibm/notes /opt/ibm/lotus

mkdir -p /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/systemdata/logs/

touch /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/systemdata/logs/rcplauncher.log

4) touch /tmp/rcplauncher.log

5) sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libgnomeprint2.2-0:i386 libgnomeprintui2.2-0:i386 libgnomevfs2-bin:i386 libgnome2-0:i386 libgnomeui-0:i386

After doing the above instructions it is actually running!  Some more packages need to be installed like fonts etc to make it look reasonable.

Sadly my KDE 4.10 environment randomly logs out when using Notes.

[Update 20130321]

Updated commands above to actually work, sorry for this.

Installing Notes 9 Beta on Linux Mint 14 64 bit

Notes from the install:

First this error:

I am stuck. Luckily I have since earlier installed notes on another installation of Linux Mint 14. Here the upgrade from earlier notes version went fine.

[Update]

sudo apt-get install libgnomeprint2.2-0:i386 libgnomeprintui2.2-0:i386 libgnomevfs2-bin:i386 libgnome2-0:i386 libgnomeui-0:i386

Now it is running :-)

Install plugins from updateSite in Lotus Notes on linux

2012/11/20

Some plugins require root-rights. So before installing from an updateSite do this:
sudo chmod 777 -R /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/shared/eclipse/

sudo chmod 777 -R /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/rcp/deploy/
and after installation
sudo chmod 755 -R /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/shared/eclipse/

sudo chmod 755 -R /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/rcp/deploy/
Now you can install the Lotus Connections plugins without any errors!
