Install plugins from updateSite in Lotus Notes on linux

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!

    Thanks for this info, i’ll try and after changing the permission install works ok. In your notes sidebar could you see the Sidebar panel “files” ? On windows will be installed, but now in Ubuntu. Thanks!

      The plugin seems to install but I cannto see any files. I hope that IBM updates the documentation for this and explain that Files is NOT available on Linux.

      If I dig out the updateSite from the Mac or Windows updateSite then the files-plugins are included and they seem to get installed. But still no Files in sidebar.
