Can you run the Notes Client on Linux?

From Peter Leugner:

Install the latest wine from www.winehq.com (or emerge wine, apt-get wine or whatever).
Install Notes 6.51 under Windows.
Copy the the Notes directory to ~/.wine/fake_windows/program files.
Copy mfc42.dll and msvcp60.dll from Windows to ~/.wine/fake_windows/windows/system


  wine "c:\program files\lotus\notes\nlnotes.exe"

and enjoy.

In Designer you also can edit and compile Java Agents now, I couldn't do that with R5 on wine.

Applies to Notes Versions: 6.5
