This is for Kubuntu, but this site came up in all of the google links,
and the problems are almost identical.


FIRST GET "iSeriesAccess-5.2.0-1.10.i386.rpm"

  su test sudo bash (where "test" is the sudo account")
  apt-get install alien
  apt-get install libmotif3
  alien -d -c iSeriesAccess-5.2.0-1.10.i386.rpm
  dpkg -i iseriesaccess-5.2.0-1.10.i386.deb
  ln -s /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/bin/ibm5250 /usr/bin/ibm5250
  ln -s /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/lib/ /usr/lib/
  ln -s /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/lib/ /usr/lib/
  ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/ /usr/lib/
  ibm5250 -LANGID en_us

*Note:  setup5250 will not work because of font conflicts I believe. 
But this is a pretty big step for me, since I had to recompile X to get
it running on Fedora Core 4, and then X wouldn't load... So this is a
new distro (Breezy) running our 5250 the way it should.  Horray!


Good luck!
