I have done the following so far. I downloaded the .rpm and converted it to .deb using alien. I installed libmotif3 and created a launcher including this in the command /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/bin/setup5250
I installed the .deb file and when I click on the launcher, the screen flashed for a brief moment and thats it. What else do I need to do to get this to work?

Re: Installing on Ubuntu 8.102008-12-11T17:02:50Z in response to SystemAdminI suggest this procedure:
1- requirements :Ubuntu-restricted-extras with ie4linux installed. (this is another story !!)
2- after the deb. installation (sudo dpkg -i "filename.deb") you must create some link with command:
sudo ln -sf /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/lib/libcwbcore.so /usr/lib/libcwbcore.so
sudo ln -sf /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/lib/libcwbrc.so /usr/lib/libcwbrc.so
sudo ln -sf /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/lib/libcwbxda.so /usr/lib/libcwbxda.so
sudo ln -sf /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/bin/ibm5250 /usr/bin/ibm5250
sudo ln -sf /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/bin/setup5250 /usr/bin/setup5250
3- If you use a different language you must update the locales (i'm Italian) for ex:
sudo gedit /var/lib/locales/supported.d/local
and add the locales ( for ex. it_IT@euro ISO-8859-15 )
after reconfigure locales:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
4- I had a problem with the messagges error icon (it show as a little square (very little)
I have correct this with commands:
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/X11/bitmaps
sudo ln -s /usr/include/X11/bitmaps/xm_error /usr/lib/X11/bitmaps/xm_error
5- Finally :) you cam create a launcher including the command line:
/opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/bin/ibm5250 -LANGID xx_XX (for italian language : LANGID it_IT)
With this method i've installed about 10 Client Acces into Ubuntu 8.04 without problem.
