Lotus Notes 8.5.2 + Ubuntu 10.10 = working, out of the box

Wow, they got it all right this time. Everything works without any tinkering – thanks IBM, you made my day. Seriously.

    I installed it on Ubuntu 10.04 and I have a problem with the calender. As soon as I change to calender, the client hangs.
    By the way r u using 32-bit or 64 bit? I am also looking for installing the windows version using crossover but withou success. Do you have any experience in this regard?

      Never had any issues with the calendar really. Which version of Notes are you using? 8.5.2? Maybe following this post might help? I tried to install the Windows version of Notes using a vanilla wine, but it borked at the installer level. So I gave up on that since the Linux client works really, really well for me nowadays. In my opinion the native client is the way to pursue.
      I am using 32bit. The few pros of 64bit do not outweigh the many cons I still encounter when relying on proprietary software – which unfortunately I have to. Good luck with your tries!

      Could you please try starting Notes in a terminal and paste me the output it spits out? Usually the startup-crash-thingie happens when required dependencies are not installed.
