Warning: Skipping conversion of scripts in package symphony: postinst postrm preinst prerm
Warning: Use the --scripts parameter to include the scripts.
mkdir: cannot create directory `symphony-3.0.1': File exists
unable to mkdir symphony-3.0.1:  at /usr/share/perl5/Alien/Package.pm line 257.

Is the error I receive after running:

sudo alien -i '/home/brentonhorne/DownloadDirector/symphony-3.0.1.i586.rpm'

Where the rpm symphony file is located at the place detailed in the code above. (I couldn't find a deb file at the IBM Lotus Symphony site)

and I have run

sudo alien -c '/home/brentonhorne/DownloadDirector/symphony-3.0.1.i586.rpm'

Where -c equates to running --scripts.

I am running 32 bit 12.10 if these details are required.

You need to download the Ubuntu version, "symphony-fp2_3.0.1_i386.deb"

You may find it here:

Then you will also need to install "libnotify1", which you can find here:

Good luck!
