    Thanks for the guide… I am getting this message after running the getlibs command on my ubuntu 12.10 64 bit. I already have the modified files for notes and sametime ready but I think I need to fix this first before I proceed… Please note that I AM running using sudo getlibs but its looking for /lib32 i belive instead of /usr/lib32 maybe…

    The following i386 packages will be installed: 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 libavahi-glib1 gtk2-engines-oxygen gtk2-engines-aurora gtk2-engines-qtcurve gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-equinox alsa-base alsa-utils iproute 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
    Continue [Y/n]? Y
    Downloading …
    Installing libraries …
    cp: target `/lib32/’ is not a directory
    Copying files failed – run getlibs with “sudo getlibs” or as root

  2. Adil Says:

    with reference to my earlier post, I noticed that there was a /lib64 but no /lib32 so I created that directory and moved fine till here….

    :~/LN853install$ sudo sed -i ‘s/gcc -Wall -Wextra `pkg/gcc -Wall -Wextra -m32 `pkg/g’
    bash: pkg/gcc: No such file or directory
    sed: invalid option — ‘W’

    Kind of stuck here now….

    • usablesoftware Says:

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

      Try the above and change the quote before s/gcc to one that is vertical and the same with the one that is after /g since WordPress thrashes my quotes and changes them to something else.

  3. Adil Says:

    Thanks for the quick reply….
    I have this message now… I am working in the same directory.

    /LN853install$ sudo sed -i ‘s/gcc -Wall -Wextra `pkg/gcc -Wall -Wextra -m32 `pkg/g’
    sed: no input files

  4. Adil Says:

    I had to use Makefile on the same command above instead of a newline… fixed that and completed the guide… trying to startup lotus notes now….

  5. Adil Says:

    Notes is not launching, I have tried firing it up from the dash and even copying the notes wrapper from LN853install folder to /opt/ibm/lotus/notes… it giving the same error as noted below…

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

  6. Michael Says:

    Hi, thanks for the nice guide!

    I have tested this with notes 9 open beta. The installation works perfect so far. The first time I start it there opens the license agreement in a terminal, which I agree with 1. After that notes just doesn’t start. Do you have some experience with notes 9 on 12.10 x64 already ?

    Best Regards, Michael
