Here we will cover the steps to install Quickr 8.2 Dutch on AIX, though these same steps can be used for all other non-English language pack installations on AIX.
Quickr 8.2 for AIX is supported only with Lotus Domino® 8.5 32-bit (not version 8.5.1 or version 8.5 64-bit). The Domino installation file is not contained on the IBM software site, so you need to download this installation file, using the instructions in the IBM Support Technote, “How to download 32-bit Domino 8.5.x for AIX
Also, refer to the Support Technote, “IBM Lotus Quickr V8.2 (services for Lotus Domino) hardware and software requirements
,” for details on system requirements.
Note that different Language Pack installations have different requirements, as cited in their Readme.txt files. For example, the Dutch Lanaguage Pack requires Fix Pack 2 English, while the Spanish Language Pack requires Fix Pack 3. These Fix Packs should be requested from IBM Technical Support.
Step 1: Installing the Domino server
1. Install the Domino server per the wiki article, “Installing Quickr 8.2 on AIX
” (do not install Quickr yet).
” (see figure 1).

3. After installing the Domino Servlet Manager, shut down the server.
Step 2: Installing Quickr 8.2
To do this, follow these steps:
1. Download the CZ2M3EN.tar file from the IBM Software Downloads site (see figure 2) to your AIX server and install Quickr 8.2, but do not run the server after the install.

You may again use the “Installing Quickr 8.2 on AIX
” wiki article to help with the configuration.
If you start the server after installing Quickr 8.2 English, then English templates will be copied to the server. So when you install the language pack you may experience mixed languages in Lotus Quickr.
2. Install the English Fix Pack per the prerequisites in the Language Pack Readme.txt. For this example we install Quickr 8.2 Dutch for AIX, for which the prerequisite is 188.8.131.52-001d.
The prerequisites for each language pack are contained in the Readme.txt for that language.
3. Install the QuickrFP8202_AIX_20090709.jar by running the following command in AIX (see figure 3):

Note that, if you receive the error, “ksh: java: not found,”
when running the above command then you need to install Java 5 or above. If the required Java is installed, then export the java path; for example, using the command:
For this demonstration we use the following AIX directory paths:
/quickr82/dutch/data - data directory
/quickr82/dutch/lotus - lotus directory
4. Install the Dutch Language Pack - IBM Lotus Quickr 8.2 Services for Lotus Domino AIX Nordic Multilingual (CZ355ML). At this point we need to export the Lotus directory, using these commands:
Figure 4 shows the screen output when you start the install.

5. Select your desired language; here we select 4 for Dutch (see figure 5).
Figure 5. Enter your language index
6. Enter your Domino data directory (see figure 6).

7. Confirm your selections and select “y” (see figure 7). The system now installs the localised data on your Quickr server.

8. When the installation has finished, navigate to the data directory and start the server.
9. Finally, open the server using a Web UI (see figure 9); your installation is successful!

When installing a localised version of Quickr 8.2 on an AIX server, it is important that you first install the Quickr 8.2 English followed by the required English Fix Pack level for the localised language you would like to install.
After installing the English Quickr 8.2 and required English Fix Pack, be sure not
to start the server until after the localised version of Lotus Quickr has been installed, to avoid having mixed language templates.
