More post-Ubuntu 8.10 changes

This time, this is the stuff I did to tweak Lotus Notes 8.5 beta 2: -

Enabling application installation ( so that I can install the Catbox plugin )

Edited /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/rcp/plugin_customization.ini and added: -

com.ibm.notes.branding/enable.update.ui=true

Enabling file transfer via the integrated Sametime client

Edited /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/rcp/plugin_customization.ini and added: -

com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.policy.sametime/allowP2PFileTransfer=true

Improved the overall performance/perception of the client

Edited /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/framework/rcp/eclipse/plugins/com.ibm.rcp.j2se.linux.x86_1.6.0.20080709-200808151631/jvm.properties and changed: -

vmarg.Xmx=-Xmx1024m

to: -

vmarg.Xmx=-Xmx256m

( as per my earlier experiences posted here )

and ... to really really sweeten the pudding: -

Disabling the annoying beep when doing stuff in an xterm window

Opened up an xterm window and ran: -

echo "set bell-style none" >> ~/.inputrc

( thanks to Ray for the last tip )
