X3270 emulator software information to connect to Mainframe with Linux Lite.


Hi all,

I am new to this forum and Linux. I installed the Linux Lite 2.2 version OS in the HP laptop (32 bit). Really I am working on Mainframe technology. So I wanted to connect to Mainframe through Linux Lite software. Can any one guide me to do this in my system and connect to mainframe(IBM).

Thanks & Regards
Raghunathan

Linux Lite is based upon Ubuntu so hopefully you can install x3270 without compiling from source. I installed 2.4 in a VM so hopefully 2.2 is similar. After I installed the restricted extras from the software GUI tool I then installed x3270-fonts via the terminal command

sudo apt-get install x3270

Then just enter the command x3270 in a terminal window and hopefully the x3270 emulator will start... Otherwise you will need to download and compile x3270 from source.
