By default the list of IBM Connections Plug-ins for IBM Notes consists only of Files, Activities, Business Card, and Status Updates. Blogs and Communities are not featured plug-ins. However, you can implement the following workaround to completely integrate your on-premises Connections environment to the Notes client.
2. Scroll down My Widgets and select Start configuring your own widgets
3. Select the Web Page radio button and then select Next button
4. Select Web page by URL radio button, in the URL field enter your Connections Homepage (or any desired application) login page address, select the Next button
5. Select From a form on this web page: Build a widget from a form on this web page (HTTP POST) radio button, select the Authentication required checkbox, then select Next button
6. Click on the Form User name: posted in the Form field, the Username and Password fields should highlight, do not change the content of those fields as they are needed to continue, select Next button
7. Select the Create new account radio button:
AccountName - enter a unique name for the account, this will be stored to the Notes client
8. Authentication Test is complete, you should be able to see Connections UI, select Next button
9. Since there is another form on the Homepage UI you need to click the Form Search in the Form field, then select Finish button
10. The Connections widget is created an added to My Widgets
11. You can add the new Connections widget to the sidebar panel by right clicking the widget icon, select Open in drop-down box, select Panel option
12. The Connections widget is now added to the sidebar panel and at your disposal to access your Connections environment freely
13. However, it's difficult to see all of the UI content so I suggest right clicking the Connections widget, selecting Open in drop-down box, then select New Window option
Connections will re-authenticate with the store credentials as it presents the UI in a new window pane that you can re-size if desired.

There are a great number of reasons why screen sharing on Linux can fail. Below are five things I recommend that you check to start with if you're having issues with screen sharing when using Connections Cloud Meetings. If it still fails after that, open a support ticket for more personalized help.
grep java /var
semodule -i mypol.pp
setsebool -P unco
grep chmod /var
grep chmod /var
semodule -i mypol.pp
#2. Make sure you have only IBM Java installed, and not other versions from the internet:
sudo alternatives --config java
The only entries for RHEL 6.7 should look like:
If you have multiple entries, remove the non-IBM packages by searching for the package name with
rpm -qa |grep -P "java|jre"
and then using
yum remove XXX
where XXX is the package name without the version number (ex. yum remove java-1.8.0-openjdk)
#3. Especially if you have previously downloaded java from the internet, check to see what plugin Firefox is using:
sudo alternatives --config libj
For RHEL 6.7, that should look like:
#4. Open up the Java Control Panel with ControlPanel and click on the "Security" tab. Make sure the Exception List (1) is empty and go ahead and click "Restore Security Prompts" (2). Also make sure the box is checked to allow Java in the browser (3).
#5. Open the Firefox menu and select "Add-ons", then select the "plugins" tab. For RHEL 6.7, it should look like:
