I need help in installing LCS/OCS in ubuntu

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I need help in installing LCS/OCS in Ubuntu which contains firewall (ISA). I have tried installing using two options.

The first one was by downloading it from Sourceforge and then installing it.

The second method was through “sudo apt-get install pidgin-sipe”. The installation goes on well without any problems, but I’m unable to create the accounts after I launch the application.

I could not find the “Microsoft LCS OCS” in protocol list.

Please help me.

Hello Charles,

First, you will need to get the sources. You can either:

  • download from sourceforge (Download version 1.3.3) or
  • you can download from source server with git. The git server is git+ssh:[email protected]/srv/git/siplcs.git

If you download from a Git source server, you will need to:

  • Clone the Sipe git repository using git protocol

[[email protected] ~]# git clone git://repo.or.cz/srv/git/siplcs.git siplcs

  • Create a new local branch mob tracking the remote mob branch.

[[email protected] ~]# cd siplcs
[[email protected] ~]# git checkout -b mob origin/mob


After that you can compile and the install. You will do the following: configure / make and make install. But to compile the sources you will need to run in a console in the siplcs/pidgin plugin folder:

[[email protected] ~]# sudo apt-get install autotools-dev libtool intltool comerr-dev libpurple-bin libpurple-dev pidgin-dev
[[email protected] ~]# ./configure –prefix=/usr/
[[email protected] ~]# make
[[email protected] ~]# make install
