Lotus Notes 8.5 / A gdk Window is being destroyed out of DestroyWindow / Ubuntu 10.4 /

Pretty much works out of the box using the .deb’s. Pretty much, because … well, it’s Notes after all.

If you are experiencing the dreaded “A gdk Window is being destroyed out of DestroyWindow” error when starting Notes in a Terminal (or your basic Mail/Calendar/whatever windows are simply not visible/not appearing), follow this bug report on launchpad.

Cliff Notes:

Don’t forget to change Notes’ default fonts. They suck. Other than that, works beautifully in my environment.

    Well, it would be nice to know what you need more details with. Just unpacking the additional gdk libraries? Or anything else?

    Might be a stupid question but where do I get the .debs that you mention? Tried to use Synaptic but nothing found for Notes in there, and googling doesn’t bring me anything obvious. Can you point me in the right direction?
