Lotus Notes 8.5.2FP2 on Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit

My new Thikpad X220 is up and running! Everything is now back at the state it was on my old notebook, except it now runs on 64bit system.

Installing Lotus Notes Client on 64bit Linux distibution is kind of tricky. First because packages from IBM are for i586 architecture, you have to install them with --force-architecture switch for dpkg command.
Then you have to install bunch of 32bit libraries to make Notes Clent work. Using script called getlibs makes it easier. Simply grab the script and run it like this:
sudo getlibs -p libavahi-client3 libavahi-common3 libavahi-glib1 libbonoboui2-0 libcroco3 libdbus-1-3 libdbus-glib-1-2 libeel2-2 libgnome2-0 libgnomecanvas2-0 libgnome-keyring0 libgnome-menu2 libgnomeprint2.2-0 libgnomeprintui2.2-0 libgnomeui-0 libgnomevfs2-0 libgsf-1-114 libgsf-1-dev librsvg2-2 librsvg2-common libselinux1 libsepol1 libstartup-notification0 libxkbfile1 gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks gtk2-engines-murrine

Now LN Client should start and run just fine. At least mine does.
