    Angry Groupwise Client 703HP1

    just installed gw client 703HP1 on OpenSuse 11.0 and the application hangs when I try to open an html e-mail. Has anybody have that same problem and maybe solved it already? Or does anybody knows how to use Evolution as a client with GW 7 mail-server?

    Thanks for any help!

    I had to to do the following to get the last couple groupwise clients to work (10.3 and 11).

    First:
    Cool Solutions: Solving Problems with Xplat GroupWise on openSUSE 10.3

    It turns out there's a problem with java and the 2.26.22 kernel.

    The fix was to edit /opt/novell/groupwise/client/groupwise and insert the following on a new line after the #! /bin/sh header:

    export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1

    The edited file should look like this:

    #!/bin/bash
    export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/novell/groupwise/client/jre/lib/i386:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
    /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise-bin "$@"



    Second: the second issue relates to images.
    Cool Solutions: Solving Client Lockups on openSUSE 10.3

    In my case I had gtk2 installed. After installing regular gtk (addition, did not remove gtk2) everything seems stable. I haven't had any lockups since installing regular gtk.

    Hope that helps

    artemedes,

    Thanks for your help!! But strangely it didn't work for me....
    What I didn't tell is that I run the 64-bit version.... maybe that's different????

    I found another post which I tried, and now I have scroll-bars in the html message but the groupwise-client still hangs. The thing I tried was:
    In the groupwise.desktop file:
    ===========
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=GroupWise
    Comment=Novell GroupWise Client
    GenericName=Mail
    Exec=/opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise.sh -jvm=-Dawt.toolkit=sun.awt.motif.MToolkit
    Icon=/opt/novell/groupwise/client/gwclient.png
    Terminal=0
    Type=Application
    Categories=Application;Network;Email;
    ============

    Any other suggestions??

    Thanks again.

    Greetz,
    Joost
