Lotus Notes 8.5.2 on Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit installation problems:

On Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit, I am currently installing Lotus Notes 8.5.2 (deb package) on it. What I noticed is that Lotus does not complete the installation. I searched the web for a possible solution and found a guide on IBM Forum but it refers to a different release which is 10.04 and I found another on http://usablesoftware.wordpress.com/, I still wasn’t able to continue with the installation after installing all the required dependencies (all getlibs, ia32lib, ecc, etc.)

I experimented with installing different Ubuntu releases and here is the summary:

  • On Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit: Works just fine after installing Lotus Notes and FP2
  • On Ubuntu 11.04 32 bit: Works just fine after installing Lotus Notes and FP2 (also in Unity environment)
  • On Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit: Could not install Lotus Notes
