Pinned topic Ubuntu 10.10 problem

‏2011-01-20T15:19:33Z |
I'm having problems installing iSeries Access for Linux on Ubuntu 10.10.
It seems that on this Ubuntu file xorg.conf is not in /etc/X11 folder.

Do you know the solution for this problem?

    What exactly is the problem, is your emulator not starting? The message about not being able to find the X config file is just a debug message and not likely the cause of your problem. The following message ('NSC0017...') looks a bit more serious.

    Did you install the libmotif3 package?

    Yes, I have installed libmotif3. It strearts dialog, but when I enter server name and credentials it just closes it gives me errors in terminal. Here is the information:

    Dialog for entering server name, username and password will start, but not emulator.
    It seems to have some problems with fonts.

    OK, when I pass locale argument, emulator starts.
    ibm5250 -LANGID hr_HR

    But I cannot seem to make it work with croatian characters.
    Here is my locale config from "sudo gedit /var/lib/locales/supported.d/local":

    en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
    hr_HR.ISO-8859-2 ISO-8859-2

    Warnings:

    Still no luck with configurating characters.
    Here are the errors whet I try to start setup:

    manic@ubuntu:~$ setup5250
    setup5250: INFORMATIONAL : Build Date: September 2010 (V7R1 1.0)

    setup5250: ERROR : Xt Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-*-medium-r-normal-*-*-*-*-*-m-90-*-*" to type FontSet.
    Segmentation fault

    How do I make it work with croatian characters like ČŠĆĐŽčšćđž? In files we use CCSID=870.

    I have the same issue. ibm5250 starts if LANG variable is exported as C. But whatever I do, I can't get croatian characters. Actually, I can't figure out how to change charset which ibm5250 is using.
