Crossover Office and Notes 6.5.3


Got it working the problem was incorrect Rights to some files. I set them all to Read/Write/Execute for everyone and it works. I'm going to go through it and start locking it down. BTW the CrossOver Office install of ND 6.5.3 Client/Admin and Designer really works nicely. I'm impressed! I had tried to install just Wine but this did not work real well.

So I answered the problem myself - Thanks

* End Edit

I just installed a copy of Crossover Office and did an install of LN 6.5.3 and all seems to have installed correctly. I copied my Notes.ini from my windows install into the data directory, and my databases into the data directory. Notes was installed in C:\Program Files\Lotus\Notes which is where CrossOver puts it. So my Notes.ini should be right.

CrossOver creates an Icon on my desktop with the following launch Settings

"/home/billfox/cxoffice/bin/wine" --workdir "C://program files//lotus//notes//" --check --cx-app "C:////Program Files////lotus////notes////admin.exe" -- "=C:~WB~program files~WB~lotus~WB~notes~WB~notes.ini"

When I launch from it I get the message that it can not access the Notes Directory is Inaccessable, but I can select the directory from the Dialog OK.

I don't understand the format of the Launch Settings, but not sure that is it.

Any help would be appreciated. BTW I'm using Fedora Core 3 fresh install with all of the latest patches.
