Installing Lotus Notes 8 on Kubuntu Hardy 8.04
Since I gave in and switched from Sidux to the new Kubuntu 8.04 – simply because Sidux just was too bleeding edge for my work rig, too many kernel switches and the new 2.6.25 totally borking my Cisco VPN Client – I had to install Lotus Notes 8.01 … Again. And it was horror again. So just for future reference I should write down what made it work.
Stuff you need to install/do on a stock Kubuntu:
# sudo apt-get install libstdc++5 libgnomecanvas2-0 \ libgnomeprint2.2-0 libgnomeprintui2.2-0 \ libgnomevfs2-0 libgnome2-0 libgnomeui-0 # cp <notesinstalldatadirectory>/deploy/install.xml /root # sudo mkdir -p /etc/lotus/notes # sudo touch /etc/lotus/notes/notesrc
Launch Installer, install away. Should work. At least did the job for me.
