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

KDE is my new favourite

2013/08/30

I have been an active Ubuntu user for 6 years now. I have been using its default desktop. It is stable and has some advantages but it is also a bit boring.

A week ago I switched to Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit, still in alpha.The KDE version is 4.11 and is working very well.

What is good about KDE (k)ompared to standard Ubuntu unity desktop?

1) Looks: Looks way better than Unity/Gnome 3. On par with Linux Mints MATE desktop.

2) Plasmoids: They work way better than in earlier versions of KDE 4.X. I use:

* favouries launcher: Gives a nice application start menu when right clicking on the desktop

* yaWP: Weather prediction

* Some of the built-in plasmoids for CPU, MEM, DISK, NET monitoring, Folder viewer etc

3) Yakuake. Drop down shell. Press F12 and it is there. Again and it is gone.

4) Clementine: Great looking music player

5) Dolphin: Great file manager. Nautilus is also good, but Dolphin has some advantages.

6) Krunner: Press Alt-F2 to start applications or use any of the plugins

7) Short-Cuts: CTRL-ESC for task manager, CTRL-Alt-Esc for kill window.

What is missing:

Some bugs (alpha of Ubuntu). More apps should be based on QT instead of GTK2 in my opinion. Example: Firefox, Filezilla, Shutter, Wine (Gtk2 right?), IBM Notes etc, apps that I use everyday. That would offer a better looking desktop experience and less resources would be needed.

Favourites launcher: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=117639

IBM Notes 9 on Ubuntu 13.10 Alpha 64bit

2013/08/30

I did an upgrade of Ubuntu from 13.04 64bit to 13.10 64bit where IBM Notes 9 stopped working.

After some try and error I finally got it working again after installing some compatibility libraries. These I selected to remove during upgrade (Ubuntu asked nicely if it could remove these and I accepted by mistake)

Install this:

sudo apt-get install libgnomeprint2.2-0:i386 libgnomeprintui2.2-0:i386 unzip:i386  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 zlib1g:i386 alsa-base:i386 alsa-utils:i386

Now it was up and running again!
Since I am using KDE. To get a less blocky IBM Notes it could be a good idea to install:
apt-get install gtk2-engines-qtcurve:i386

And then set this theme in the System Settings.

Do not use oxygen-gtk as a theme since IBM Notes might crash after a few minutes if this theme is used. Se more info here:

3) dpkg -i –force-all ibm-notes-9.0.i586.deb

4) dpkg -i –force-all ibm-sametime-9.0.i586.deb

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/

Quick install guide: Installing Notes 9 beta on Ubuntu Raring Ringtail 64bit beta1

2013/03/16

Great news everybody. Notes 9 is easier then ever to install on latest Ubuntu daily build. This could mean that final IBM Notes 9 which will be released on 21st of March will be easy to install on final Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail 64 bit.

Here is how I did it on a fresh install (I am reusing information from old posts):

root@blackbox:/home/anders/Downloads/UbuntuNotes9# ls -la
total 468500
drwxrwxr-x 2 anders anders      4096 jan 26 13:27 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 anders anders      4096 mar 10 19:57 ..

-rw-rw-r– 1 anders anders  79614910 jan 26 13:16 ibm-sametime-9.0.i586.deb

1) dpkg -i -force-all ibm-notes-9.0.i586.deb

Will give error, remedy is:

2) nano /var/lib/dpkg/info/ibm-notes.postinst

Comment out this part like example below:

#  if [ -f “$1/rcp/collectionutility.jar” ]; then
#    func_installLog “– Running collector with the following command:”
#    func_installLog “– $COLLECTORCOMMAND”
#    $COLLECTORCOMMAND
#  fi

3)

ln -s /opt/ibm/notes /opt/ibm/lotus

mkdir -p /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/systemdata/logs/

touch /opt/ibm/notes/framework/rcp/systemdata/logs/rcplauncher.log

4) touch /tmp/rcplauncher.log

5) sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libgnomeprint2.2-0:i386 libgnomeprintui2.2-0:i386 libgnomevfs2-bin:i386 libgnome2-0:i386 libgnomeui-0:i386

After doing the above instructions it is actually running!  Some more packages need to be installed like fonts etc to make it look reasonable.

Sadly my KDE 4.10 environment randomly logs out when using Notes.

[Update 20130321]

Updated commands above to actually work, sorry for this.

Quick ‘n Dirty install guide: Lotus Notes 8.5.X on Ubuntu 12.04 32bit

2012/04/23

This is for 32bit version of Lotus Notes. I do not know how to install on 64bit Ubuntu yet. Please provide me with instructions if you can.

On Lotus Notes beta forum IBM have hinted that 8.5.4 will support Ubuntu 64. Hopefully this will be the case!

sudo apt-get install libgnomeprint2.2-0 libgnomeprintui2.2-0 ttf-xfree86-nonfree libgnomevfs2-0 libgnome2-0 libgnomeui-0

(unpack deb-file, modify CONTROL file removing any dependencies, pack deb-file – instructions below)

sudo dpkg -i ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb
sudo dpkg -i –force-all ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.3.i586.deb ibm-lotus-activities-8.5.3.i586.deb

 

Modify CONTROL file in deb file:

In Nautilus, right click on ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb and select extract here. When extracting finished then Rename file ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb to somehting else.

Enter folder LN853install/ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586/DEBIAN and open file CONTROL in text editor.

Make sure following lines are empty

Pre-Depends:
Depends:
Recommends:
Conflicts:
So nothing after colon!  Now save the file.

Convert them to debs again!
sudo 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’.

3) Post install 
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

$ cd /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/
anders@sabayon:/opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib32 ../notes-wrapper
Or run from menu.
Please tell me if you have a better method.
BTW How do you install x86 files using equo on an amd64 system. This tool should be able to do this, because doing it manually is time consuming.

Install Lotus Notes 8.5.3 En on Ubuntu 11.04 64bit

2011/10/10

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

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

mkdir ~/LN853install

cd ~/LN853install

2) Copy all Lotus files you want to install

ls -la ~/LN853install

-rw-r–r–  1 anders anders   5015238 2011-10-10 17:44 ibm-lotus-activities-8.5.3.i586.deb
-rw-r–r–  1 anders anders   3933118 2011-10-10 17:44 ibm-lotus-cae-8.5.3.i586.deb
-rw-r–r–  1 anders anders    108796 2011-10-10 17:44 ibm-lotus-feedreader-8.5.3.i586.deb
-rw-r–r–  1 anders anders 342931012 2011-10-10 17:47 ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb
-rw-r–r–  1 anders anders  53008774 2011-10-10 17:45 ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.3.i586.deb
-rw-r–r–  1 anders anders 146089190 2011-10-10 17:47 ibm-lotus-symphony-8.5.3.i586.deb

3) Modify packages to get them installed

a) Lotus Notes

In Nautilus, right click on ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb and select extract here. When extracting finished then Rename file ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb to somehting else.

Enter folder LN853install/ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586/DEBIAN and open file CONTROL in text editor.

Make sure following lines are empty

Pre-Depends:
Depends:
Recommends:
Conflicts:
So nothing after semicolon!  Now save the file.

b) Lotus Sametime

In Nautilus, right click on  ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.3.i586.deb and select extract here. When extracting finished then Rename file  ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.3.i586.deb to somehting else.

Enter folder LN853install/ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.3.i586/DEBIAN and open file CONTROL in text editor.

Make sure following lines are empty

Pre-Depends:
Depends:

So nothing after semicolon!  Now save the file.

c) Convert them to debs again!

sudo 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’.

and

sudo dpkg-deb -b ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.3.i586.deb

dpkg-deb: building package `ibm-lotus-sametime:i386′ in `ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.3.i586.deb’.

In order to install i386 packages in a good manner we need the tool getlibs. Here is how it is installed:

4) Install extra libraries

sudo apt-get -y 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 … 167584 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)

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

7) Symbolic link

sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/libavahi-glib.so.1 /usr/lib32/

8) Install Lotus Notes

Optional, remove temporary directories: rm -rf ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586 ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.3.i586

Important: It is two dashes before force-all that is – – (without the space between them).

a) sudo dpkg -i –force-all ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.3.i586.deb

dpkg: warning: overriding problem because –force enabled:

Optional CAE, Activities, Symphony and maybe more for the localized packages.

9) We are not really there yet

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

10) Install fix for gdk

Important: Double dashes before no-check-certficate , that is – – (without the space)

wget –no-check-certificate https://github.com/sgh/lotus-notes_gtk2.23.3/raw/d3492c997bc7a92b895fa1369d4743a8e20b56b5/Makefile

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

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

Update 2011-10-14:

For Oneric Ocelot final release. Do this:

sudo getlibs -p libgnome-desktop-3-2 liborbit2 libbonobo2-0 libgconf2-4

I still cannot get it to work at the moment though…

/opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
even though:

: ls -laFtr /usr/lib32/ | grep conf-2
-rw-r–r–  1 root root   182536 2011-10-14 14:29 libgconf-2.so.4.1.5
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       19 2011-10-14 14:29 libgconf-2.so.4 -> libgconf-2.so.4.1.5

Need to add this to the notes-wrapper file:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib32

I hope I have time to give more exact details soon

Update 2011-11-07:

For Oneric install these before Lotus Notes

getlibs -p libx11-6 libxt6 libxext6  libc6  libgcc1  libgtk2.0-0  libxkbfile1 libglib2.0-0  libstdc++6 bash
