HP MyRoom on a 64 bits Linux

2014/11/17

Well, HP is now promoting a new solution for webinars called HP MyRoom. And even if they provide rpm (and deb) packages, these are not working out of the box on my Mageia 64 bits distro, of course. That was already the case with HP Virtual Room previsouly.

But nothing you can’t make work, as long as you have the source don’t you ? So here is the receipe:

First install all the required dependencies that are not correctly mentioned in the rpm:

urpmi lib64xtst6 libxtst6 lib64xscrnsaver1 libxscrnsaver1 jpeg-devel lcms-devel lib64pulseaudio0 libpulseaudio0

Then add an additional library which was not even part of Mageia when I started this post 😉
Get it from Cauldron where I uploaded it:

wget http://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib/cauldron/x86_64/media/core/release/libmng1-1.0.10-1.mga5.x86_64.rpm
wget http://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib/cauldron/i586/media/core/release/libmng1-1.0.10-1.mga5.i586.rpm
urpmi libmng1-1.0.10-1.mga5.x86_64.rpm libmng1-1.0.10-1.mga5.i586.rpm

Then finally download HP MyRoom for a 64 bits RPM system and install it with:

rpm -ivh --nodeps hpmyroom-10.0.0.0210.amd64.rpm

and launch it !

/usr/bin/hpmyroom

And now enjoy exchanging from Linux as well as from Lynx but without the hassle to use Windows 😉
