Quickr Domino on Linux problem - can’t upload attachments (and the solution)

I had a PMR opened for a long time now, because on my personal Quickr 8.5.1 Vmware machines (SLES and CentOS), I had the really annoying problem that I couldn't upload attachments anymore.  Now that's a really basic function of Quickr, so it really annoyed me.

The solution came from support today, and it was a surprisingly simple solution :  the notes user (running Domino) didn't have write access to the /tmp directory.

Give the notes user rwx access to /tmp ( chmod 777 /tmp does the trick nicely) and problem solved.

I almost felt very stupid there, that I didn't spot this myself.  But it never occured to me to look there - by default , /tmp is writeable to all users in Linux ....

Anyway, very happy that this is solved for me :-)
