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

Why have IBM produced 2 packages for Sametime embedded install?
