Also if you add the relevant code snippets or if you point to a public repository where people can look at the code, it will be easier to help you. Thanks! – David Planella Feb 3 '12 at 8:12 seems to have a good rep. I'm using Glassfish, personally, which is probably overkill.. – Thufir Mar 11 '15 at 4:34

I believe one of the most popular frameworks to work with CORBA in Linux was Bonobo, but as you can see from the link, it's been deprecated for a while in the Linux desktop in favour of D-Bus, so you might want to start looking into that instead.

Other than that, there are a couple of CORBA on Linux guides on the net, but seem to be quite old:

Note: as I understand it, Bonobo was a wrapper to provide object-like interfaces to CORBA. The CORBA Object Request Broker (ORB) itself was implemented with Orbit. This online reference describes Orbit's implementation of CORBA quite well, albeit it is out of date and written in Spanish.
