Notes 8 beta 2 on Ubuntu

Alan Bell, explained how to enable the installation of Notes 8 on Ubuntu.
Basically the installer requires bash rather than dash. To do this as Alan explained...
start a terminal session, and...

cd /bin
ls -l sh
this should show sh -> dash
sudo rm sh
sudo ln -s bash sh
ls -l sh
this should now show sh -> dash

Download the installer for Notes8 beta 2 for Linux from IBM and extract the archive by running...
tar -xvf notes8standard_linux_beta2_np.tar

Once this has been successfully completed you can run the Notes8beta installer by running ./setup.bin

From this point onwards the intsallation if basically the same as on the Windows platform.
After installation the client can be started by running ./notes from inside the clients directory.

I found that I had to exit the client and restart it to successfully get up and running.

Free Web Conferencing looks pretty good.
It's a free (no cost) web conferencing tool for 10 people and works on Mac as well as windows.

Apparently they also have a tool called LetsPowwow which is available on Linux
