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/

    I was able to get around my above error by using the
    sudo dpkg –force-depends -i ibm-notes-9.0.i586.deb

    Have it running now. Thanks for all that you do to help us noobs on installing Notes!

    Great again!
    I always look at this blog when I have to install a new version of Lotus Notes on Ubuntu.
    I have slightly different problems, but finally I managed to install Lotus Notes 9 on a fresh Ubuntu 13.04 64 bits installation (not beta version) modifying the deb package (http://myotragusbalearicus.wordpress.com/2013/06/21/install-lotus-notes-9-on-ubuntu-13-04-64-bits/). Neither –force-all nor –force-depends are now required, and the most important, there’s no apt-get -f install problems.

    have you experienced any crashes. Notes 9.0 on Kubuntu 13.10 alpha crashes *every* time when sending email.

    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.
