Here is what I have just used for Ubuntu 9.10 and Linux Mint 8.
These instructions work for Ubuntu 9.10 and Linux Mint 8 (which is based on
Ubuntu 9.10) and are based on Nate Bounds work on Ubuntu help forums.
Download iSeries Access for Linux here:
I use the v6r1 version and I download it to my Downloads directory.
Get into terminal. Then:
# cd Downloads
# sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts -y
# sudo fc-cache -f -v
# sudo apt-get install libmotif3 alien -y
#sudo alien -i iSeriesAccess-6.1.0-1.0.i386.rpm -cv
# xset fp
# ibm5250 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx or domain name of as400/iseries/i5/system i/whatever_it_is_called_today
You can use setup5250 to customize the installation. To make a launcher, go to a desktop and right click and select 'Create Launcher' and place ibm5250 and desired session attributes in the command field.
