Install Lotus Notes 8.5.3 on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit

So here finally it comes – more detailed installation instructions. This time for the 64bit version of Precise Pangolin.

First uninstall all previous versions. Do this by “dpkg -l | grep lotus” then do “dpkg –purge name-of-lotus-package”. Also I cannot guarantee that the installation of 32bit libraries will not destroy aanyting else.

1) Create a folder for the files. In this case

mkdir ~/LN853install

cd ~/LN853install


2) Copy all Lotus files you want to install

tar xvf /media/externaldrive/Software/LotusNotes853/lotus_notes853_linuxUb_en.tar

@amd64:/home/anders/LN853install# ls -la

total 538676

-rwx——  1 root   root     1218560 Sep 16  2011 license.tar

-rwx——  1 root   root        6815 Sep 16  2011 smartupgrade.sh

3) Modify packages to get them installed
Right click on ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb in Nautilus and select Extract Here.
Navigate to folder, LN853install/ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586/DEBIAN. Right click on file control and select Open With Text Editor.
Remove all text after Pre-depends, Depends, Conflicts, Replaces:
Delete the original ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb file. And open a terminal windows and navigate to /home/anders/LN853install and issue this command:
dpkg-deb -b ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586
dpkg-deb: building package `ibm-lotus-notes:i386′ in `ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb’.



Now delete the folder:
rm -rf ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586

4) Install extra libraries

sudo apt-get install libgnomeprintui2.2-0 ia32-libs ttf-xfree86-nonfree t1-xfree86-nonfree

5) Install getlibs

wget https://launchpad.net/~jcollins/+archive/jaminppa/+build/1482994/+files/getlibs_2.06-0ubuntu1%7Eppa2_all.deb

sudo dpkg -i getlibs_2.06-0ubuntu1~ppa2_all.deb
Selecting previously deselected package getlibs.
(Reading database … 206259 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking getlibs (from getlibs_2.06-0ubuntu1~ppa2_all.deb) …
Setting up getlibs (2.06-0ubuntu1~ppa2) …

6) Install compatibility libraries (some may not be needed, plz help me update this)

Hmm, /usr/lib32 seems to be replaced with /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/

See: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MultiArch

I am a but unsure if the following part destroys anything. Please do not do this if you are unsure, wait for better instructions in coming blog post!

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu /usr/lib32

OR if unsure do this:

sudo mkdir /usr/lib32

Install command:

sudo getlibs -p libgnomeprintui2.2-0 libgnomeprint2.2-0 libgnomevfs2-0 libgnomeui-0 libxkbfile1 libstartup-notification0 libsepol1 libselinux1 libgsf-1-114 libgsf-1-dev librsvg2-2 librsvg2-common libavahi-client3 libavahi-common3 libavahi-glib1 libbonoboui2-0 libcroco3 libdbus-1-3 libdbus-glib-1-2  libgnome2-0 libgnomecanvas2-0 libgnome-keyring0 libgnome-menu2 libesd0 gtk2-engines libgnome-desktop-2-17 libmotif4 libmotif3 libgnome-desktop-3-0 libavahi-glib1 gtk2-engines-oxygen gtk2-engines-aurora gtk2-engines-qtcurve  gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-equinox  alsa-base alsa-utils iproute libgnome-desktop-3-2 liborbit2 libbonobo2-0 libgconf2-4 libx11-6 libxt6 libxext6  libc6  libgcc1  libgtk2.0-0  libxkbfile1 libglib2.0-0  libstdc++6 bash libart-2.0-2 libpopt0 libgnomeui-0


7) Install Lotus Notes and Sametime etc

dpkg -i ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb

dpkg -i ibm-lotus-feedreader-8.5.3.i586.deb

dpkg -i ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.3.i586.deb

8) We are not really there yet

sudo apt-get install g++-multilib libgtk2.0-dev


9) GDK Fix

wget https://github.com/sgh/lotus-notes_gtk2.23.3/raw/d3492c997bc7a92b895fa1369d4743a8e20b56b5/Makefile

wget https://github.com/sgh/lotus-notes_gtk2.23.3/raw/d3492c997bc7a92b895fa1369d4743a8e20b56b5/libnotesgtkfix.c

wget https://github.com/sgh/lotus-notes_gtk2.23.3/raw/d3492c997bc7a92b895fa1369d4743a8e20b56b5/notes-wrapper

Important: Note that the ‘ before s and after g is of type that is straight. Not that it is a backquote before pkg

sudo sed -i ‘s/gcc -Wall -Wextra `pkg/gcc -Wall -Wextra -m32 `pkg/g’ Makefile

make

chmod +x notes-wrapper

sudo cp notes-wrapper libnotesgtkfix.so /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/

Important: Note that the ‘ before s and after g is of type that is straight.

sudo sed -i ‘s/../notes %F/../notes-wrapper %F/g’ /usr/share/applications/LotusNotes8.5.desktop


10) Make notes-wrapper file look like this

Change all references to /anders/ to /yourusername/ also be careful with quotes so they are correct

nano /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes-wrapper

#!/bin/sh

cd `dirname “$0″`

echo “setting locale …”

LANGUAGE=”en_US.UTF-8″

LC_ALL=”en_US.UTF-8″

LANG=”en_US.UTF-8″

export LANGUAGE LC_ALL LANG

echo “setting notes environment …”

NOTESBIN=/opt/ibm/lotus/notes

NOTESDATA=/home/anders/lotus/notes/data

NOTESDIR=/home/anders/lotus/notes

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$NOTESBIN:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu:$NOTESBIN/jvm/bin/classic:$NOTESBIN/jvm/bin:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

PATH=$NOTESBIN/jvm/bin:$NOTESBIN:$PATH

CLASSPATH=./:$NOTESBIN/:$CLASSPATH

export NOTESBIN NOTESDATA NOTESDIR LD_LIBRARY_PATH PATH CLASSPATH

#/opt/ibm/Workplace Managed Client/rcp/richclient -personality com.ibm.workplace.noteswc.standalone.linux.personality

echo “starting notes …”

LD_PRELOAD=`pwd`/libnotesgtkfix.so `pwd`/notes $*

11) Symlinks

sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libgnomeui-2.so.0 /usr/lib32/libgnomeui-2.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libavahi-glib.so.1 /usr/lib32/libavahi-glib.so.1
sudo ln -s /lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libpopt.so.0 /usr/lib32/libpopt.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0/modules/libcanberra-gtk-module.so /usr/lib32/libcanberra-gtk-module.so

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/i386-linux-gnu/libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0 /usr/lib32

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/i386-linux-gnu/libORBit-2.so.0 /usr/lib32


12) Speed it up

sudo sed -i ‘s/vmarg.Xmx=-Xmx256m/vmarg.Xmx=-Xmx768m/g’ /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/rcp/deploy/jvm.properties


13) Go nag on IBM to make software that is more linux compatible!!

    Tried to reproduce on a fresh 12.04 installation. It starts up, but I get the message on console:

      After softlinking the missing item to (the already existing in the system) /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so the error changes to

      Definitely fixed with

  5. goido Says:

    Followed the instructions here on a fresh installed 12.04 x64 virtual machine but don’t get it to work. Latest error message is:

    /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes: error while loading shared libraries: libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    At first startup without a “lotus” dir in the home it brings up shortly the Notes Startup screen and after that the terminal with the license agreement. But than nothing more happens. When the lotus dir is created in the home and I run the wrapper-file i got the error message from above.

    Any idea?

    • usablesoftware Says:

      I had the same problem but this line (as described in guide):
      sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/i386-linux-gnu/libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0 /usr/lib32
      should fix it….

      • Olle Says:

        Had the same problem and I got it to work by checking all symbolic links with
        ls -l /usr/lib32
        if there are any red ones they are wrong. In my case it was libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0 and libORBit-2.so.0.
        I remove the wrong one with
        sudo rm /usr/lib32/libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0
        and created a correct link
        sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0 /usr/lib32
        if it is there were the file is (use find /usr/ -name ‘libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0′ to find it).
        I also changed the line
        LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$NOTESBIN:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu:$NOTESBIN/jvm/bin/classic:$NOTESBIN/jvm/bin:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
        in notes-wrapper to

    • desihu Says:

      I too have the same error. I am on Pinguy 12.04 with LN 8.5.3 any help?

      • desihu Says:

        So I started fresh next day and checked each step again. One thingh which was noticed that the above error is because of invalid symbolic link to a file which does not exist. Try remove the symlink first and seach for the right files by using command
        find /usr/ -name ‘libORBit*’
        based on the results make a fresh symlink with the right location.
        Once this was solved, the next issue I faced was that LN opened but the app screen was no rendering. Followed the note on
        www-10.lotus.com/ldd/dominowiki.nsf/dx/Notes_8.5.3_on_Ubuntu_11.10
        and installed the libgtk libs and voila every thing is working fine now.

        Thanks to both the authors for the efforts!

  7. Duncan Gallimore Says:

    Help! The last stage doesn’t run – it says “./notes-wrapper: 18: ./notes-wrapper: pwd/notes: not found”
    What am I doing wrong? I changed the quotes and the directory locations.

  8. Aleix Says:

    Using notes-warpper you must be placed in /opt/ibm/lotus/notes directory. But in my case (8.5.4 beta2) I’m using standard launcher
    /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/../notes %F

  9. Aleix Says:

    Hello, yes I did all steps and also some symlinks like “sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/i386-linux-gnu/libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0 /usr/lib32″ and so on; BUT I don’t use notes-warper instead I use notes

  10. David Teague Says:

    When I run this command
    sudo sed -i ‘s/../notes %F/../notes-wrapper %F/g’ /usr/share/applications/LotusNotes8.5.desktop

    I get this error…
    sed: -e expression #1, char 15: unknown option to `s’

    The other sed commands work just on that one… any ideas?

    • Duncan Gallimore Says:

      Have you checked your inverted commas? They should be straight. If you copied from the website they’ll probably need changing (did on mine).

      • David Teague Says:

        Yea I changed all the commas, it might be related to the error I posted below.

      • David Teague Says:

        The Command worked like this for me .
        sudo sed -i ‘s/\.\.\/notes\ \%F/\.\.\/notes\-wrapper\ \%F/g’ /usr/share/applications/Lotus\ Notes\ 8.5.desktop

      • Nils Says:

        Got the same problem like David His command:
        sudo sed -i ‘s/\.\.\/notes\ \%F/\.\.\/notes\-wrapper\ \%F/g’ /usr/share/applications/Lotus\ Notes\ 8.5.desktop
        doesn’t throw the “unknown option” error anymore, but another one:
        sed: kann /usr/share/applications/Lotus Notes 8.5 nicht lesen: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
        so in english: file or folder not found, but the file is there…any ideas?

    • Nigel Says:

      That command is SIMPLY changing “notes” to “notes-wrapper” so the line in file /usr/share/applications/LotusNotes8.5.desktop looks like

      Exec=/opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/../notes-wrapper %F

    Hello all,

    my compliments on your lotus documentation to date.

    I am running Debian 64-bit and have got Lotus to the point where I see the GUI and also.. this message – Error Code 493: Do not run as root.

    I have been working with Mainframes since 1977 and unix since the 80′s and I have no intention of running with a user other than root.

    Would anyone have an idea on how or what to tweak to get lotus Notes to run with the root user?

    Any helpful replies would be much appreciated.

    Regards,

    Aubrey

  12. andremassena Says:

    Compliments on your documentary efforts to date.

    I am a root-only user (been in the business since 1977).

    When I start Notes I am getting a “Error Code 493: Do not run as root.”

    Would anyone know a tweak to allow running Lotus Notes as root?

    All helpful contributions appreciated.

    Aubrey

    • usablesoftware Says:

      I have no idea if running as root would work, but in theory it should. Since no one have had this question before I do not think it ever has been answered.

      Maybe we can trick lotus notes by using a pre-script that makes not think it is a user with UID higher than 1000?

  13. andremassena Says:

    Appreciate the reply.

    It would be nice to know what file(s) I need to amend/change to get this version (8.5.2) to run as root.

    Regards,

    Aubrey

  14. marcos Says:

    This one is interesting: I can’ get the external browser to be open when clicking on an URL.

    The option is correctly set under preferences, but somehow Notes prepends the working directory (/opt/ibm/lotus/notes) in front of the URL before* calling the OS. Then the OS receives something that looks like a file (e.g. /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/http:/www.ibm.com) and decides to use the default file manager on it (which fails, as one might expect).

    Anybody experiencing this?

    * Just an assumption, haven’t been able to prove this via strace since parameters get cut.

  16. Chin Khor Says:

    Following all above instructions and some minor fixes I’ve managed run LN853 in 12.04 64bit in Hyper-V VM and desktops successfully.

    Do not run as root but use sudo instead.

    1) Delete ‘bash’ from sudo getlibs -p … libstdc++6 bash libart-2.0-2…. No problem with not found “libmotif3 & libgnome-desktop-3-0″

    2) Replace all double quote characters in notes-wrapper after copy and paste from screen display.

    3) Get this right “Important: Note that the ‘ before s and after g is of type that is straight.”

    4) Copy Notes ID file into /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/data

    5) First time run from terminal window /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes-wrapper. Expect to see warnings and errors messages until Notes setup screen appears.

    Thanks so much for this guide.

    I thought Mint 13 is basically Ubuntu 12.04 with different gui, but I am having no luck getting this tutorial to work on Mint 13 64 bit. Quite a few of the paths seems to be different or don’t make sense in the tutorial above. Take for instance the symlinks section. The tutorial lists this sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libgnomeui-2.so.0 /usr/lib32/libgnomeui-2.so.0. But I had to do this sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnomeui-2.so.0 /usr/lib32/libgnomeui-2.so.0
    I still don’t have it running, but it starts up the Notes banner and cycles forever on “starting please wait”.

        Hi , I got the same problem ( a loop in the loading screen ) , did you find a solution ?

        Im on a Debian 7 trying to install 8.5.3 ..

  19. pclose86 Says:

    well.. to better supply the lib32 stuff rather than symlinking i would use LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable eg:

    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib32/i386-linux-gnu LD_PRELOAD=`pwd`/libnotesgtkfix.so `pwd`/notes $*

    Thanks, I’ve got Notes 8.5.4cd3 working with Ubuntu 12.04 64Bit

  21. ckirby Says:

    Your mileage may vary but I’ve had success using apt-get in place of getlibs. Specifically I needed to re-install some of the gtk engines (I ran apt-get autoremove in a moment of studity). To do this I appended the “:i386″ to the package name and things installed fine into the new multi-arch library locations, e.g.:

    sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine:i386

    installs the murrine engine to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu. I haven’t tried this with all the libraries listed in step 6 but it bodes well.

  22. Nigel Says:

    There are number of errors in the guide. Can these be corrected?

    These two lines are WRONG

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/i386-linux-gnu/libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0 /usr/lib32

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/i386-linux-gnu/libORBit-2.so.0 /usr/lib32

    They should be
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libORBit-2.so.0 /usr/lib32/
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0 /usr/lib32/

    I finally got mine to work.

  23. Nils Says:

    All problems solved so far, but when starting with /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes-wrapper i get the error:
    /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomeprint-2-2.so.0: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

    • Nigel Says:

      that error, I don’t fix and Lotus Notes still works. Doesn’t seem to be a problem?

  24. ahatius Says:

    I always got the error that libgnomeui-2.so.0 wasn’t found, when starting notes. Turns out, Lotus Notes searches those files in /usr/lib. After fixing the libgnomeui-2.so.0 I had several other files missing. Here are the commands I had to execute, until I got Notes at least starting:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libgnomeui-2.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnomeui-2.so.0
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libavahi-glib.so.1 /usr/lib/libavahi-glib.so.1
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/libpopt.so.0 /usr/lib/libpopt.so.0
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/libORBit-2.so.0 /usr/lib/libORBit-2.so.0
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0 /usr/lib/libORBitCosNaming-2.so.0

    Hi
    When I try to run Lotus Notes using the command /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes-wrapper, I get the following error:
    /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomevfs-2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    • Brian Says:

      did you figure out what was wrong? I’m having the exact same problem on my ubuntu 12.04 64 bit desktop that is a fairly new installation

      • hk Says:

        just make symbolic link to i386-linux-gnu/libgnomevfs-2.so.0.2400.4
        In my case,other libraries needed to make symbolic links, and finaly notes-wrapper works.

  27. Stefan Felkel Says:

    We had an issue with screen sharing in Sametime meeting rooms – this didn’t work on 12.04 64bit (Notes 8.5.3, 8.5.4).

    After hours of investigation I found out, that a wrapped library had unsatisfied dependencies.

    To resolve that, libjpeg62:i386 was necessary to be installed. Fortunately, it is co-installable to its amd64 pendant.

    After that, screen sharing was possible.

  28. Richard Says:

    Followed these instructions on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit.

    What I’m not sure about is how to actually run Notes at the end.

    1) If I run with sudo:
    sudo /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes
    Then distorted splash appears, then lots of information in the log and I get the error ‘Error Code 493: Do not run as root.’

    2) If I run without sudo:
    /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes
    Then I only get the first error message:
    /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes: error while loading shared libraries: libart_lgpl_2.so.2: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
    Nothing else happens after that

    3) If I add the command ‘notes’ to the end of notes-wrapper then run it as sudo:
    sudo /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes-wrapper
    Then the same happens as in case 1)

    4) If I added the command ‘notes’ to the end of notes-wrapper then run without sudo:
    /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes-wrapper
    Then the same happens as in case 2)

    5) If I try to tun Lotus Notes from the ‘Dash home’ then a splash screen appears, then the licence appears in a terminal (which I agree by entering ’1′). Then the terminal disappears and nothing else happens.

    Can you thinks of what to try?
    Thanks, Richard

    Just installed Notes 9 on Ubuntu 64 without problems.
    Maybe upgrading to this version will solve all problems that I have read about the 8.5.x client.
