Installation du FixPack de Lotus 8.5.1 ... enfin c'est valable aussi sur les versions supérieures ...

D'abord un petit rappel de l'installation sur le Karmic 64bits ... que j'avais trouvé sur le forum d'IBM ... Encore merci à Mickael Strong ..

Just wanted to give a hint after hours of trying to install Lotus Notes 8.5.1 on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala 64 Bit.

1. Download Notes 8.5.1 for debian platforms and extract the files.

2. sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

3. install getlibs from

4. issue the following command:
> sudo getlibs -p libavahi-client3 libavahi-common3 libavahi-glib1 libbonoboui2-0 libcroco3 libdbus-1-3 libdbus-glib-1-2 libeel2-2 libgnome2-0 libgnomecanvas2-0 libgnome-keyring0 libgnome-menu2 libgnomeprint2.2-0 libgnomeprintui2.2-0 libgnomeui-0 libgnomevfs2-0 libgsf-1-114 libgsf-1-dev librsvg2-2 librsvg2-common libselinux1 libsepol1 libstartup-notification0 libxkbfile1 gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks gtk2-engines-murrine

5. install the Notes Deb files:

sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.1.i586.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ibm-lotus-activities-8.5.1.i586.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ibm-lotus-cae-8.5.1.i586.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ibm-lotus-sametime-8.5.1.i586.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ibm-lotus-symphony-8.5.1.i586.deb

6. Now it got tricky when i started Notes I realized the following: The fonts where very ugly so I installed some fonts

>sudo apt-get install ttf-xfree86-nonfree

now it look nicer but I could not see the Homescreen nor could I open messages in the mail nor could i compose messages so I did the following:

7. replace some libaries accordinf to you can find them here. Very special thanks to you saved me hours.

replace the libraries in /opt/ibm/lotus/notes with the ones from the link above . make sure they are owned by root and that they are executable. set the permissons like the ones of the other libraries in /opt/ibm/lotus/notes

8. You now can start Lotus Notes from the menu

comme vous aviez fidèlement suivi la procédure le client Lotus notes 8.5.1 fonctionne ... l'installation du fixpack va se comporter de la même manière ... Après avoir décompacter le fixpack il suffira de lancer

sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ibm_lotus_notes_fixpack-8.5.1.i586.deb

et on attend la fin ..
