Lotus Notes 8.5 & Ubuntu 9.10

if you install the .deb file of Lotus Notes Client 8.5 in Ubuntu 9.10 everything will go fine, except that you will not see anything in the main window…It’s a problem related to an update of libgtk, you need the old files instead.

Easy solution:

1 – Download here the 4 files (courtesy of BenKevan/EclipseAgent)

2 – Copy them in /opt/ibm/lotus/notes

3 – Voilà.

  1. I have downloaded the file but I cannot copy them into the /opt/ibm/lotus/notes directory.

    • Open a terminal, go to the directory where you just downloaded the files and do:

      sudo mv lib*.* /opt/ibm/lotus/notes
