Notes/Domino 8 Forum

I just got it running on a clean Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) install

Got Notes 8.0.1 running on Hardy Heron. The only thing (?) I installed before I installed Lotus Notes was the Sun Java Runtime Environment 1.6, but that was just to be able to download the Lotus Notes software from Partnerworld using the Download Director. I do not think that made it work...

This is what I did:

Start a terminal session, and "cd" your way to the directory where you have the installation files( , installdata and + the deploy directory)

log in as root:

$ su root

I set the default command interpreter to bash, based on suggestions on this forum... I don't think that is necessary, though, but this is what I did:

$ ln -sf bash /bin/sh

Copy one installation file to root's home directory:

$ cp deploy/install.xml /root

If you do not copy the install.xml-file to /root, the installer will fail with an error message that notesrc-file is missing.....

$ ./ -console

This starts the install in text-mode. I have not been able to get the graphical installer running...

When installation has finished, you should restore the sh command interpreter to dash:

$ ln -sf dash /bin/sh

Exit the terminal session, and start Notes from the Program menu ( Program/Office/Lotus Notes 8 ) (assuming you are logged in to X-windows system using your normal login account).
