    Default [SOLVED] Can't start Zimbra...

    Last night I installed Zimbra and rather liked it. It ran well and work greet as an email client. Today, I tried starting it (no changes other than I deleted the install file I downloaded) and it won't run. It says "The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost:7633".

    I am running Ubuntu 8.04, if that makes any difference...

    On Linux by default it's installed under ~/zimbra/zdesktop. Run the following at the command line:

    ./zdesktop start

    Before this i used to open a console, type ...path../zdesktop start, open Firefox and, finally, enter the URL, meanwhile my brother just click the icon on his MacBook.

    Now, i just click the icon too!!!

    The attachment has to files: zdesktop_linuxstart and zimbra.desktop

    You have to place zdesktop_linuxstart in your path, like /usr/local/bin and edit only one line:

    Code:
    ###### Edit Only This ##################
    # Directory Where ZDesktop is installed
    ZD_HOME=/home/pbruna/bin/zimbra/zdesktop
    and the second file, zimbra.desktop, place in your Desktop folder at you home and edit only the line where defines the icon path:

    Code:
    #EDIT ME -- REPLACE WITH THE DIRECTORY WHERE ZDESKTOP IS, THE SAME AS ZD_HOME
    Icon=/home/pbruna/bin/zimbra/zdesktop/launcher_32x32.xpm
    That is. I hope some one find this useful too.

    bye

    PD: By the way, you need to have Zdesktop already installed

    3.) Created a script called "ZimbraDesktop.sh" with the following contents"

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    /home/alan/zimbra/zdesktop/zdesktop start
    
    exit 0
    4.) chmod the script with 755 permissions to make is executeable ('chmod 755 ZimbraDesktop.sh')

    I have not had any problems since. If you are running Ubuntu with the Gnome desktop, I believe you can autostart programs from the GUI using a session manager in the Sytem menu, but I am not sure of the exact steps to do that.

    I hope this helps.

    Goto start->run, type services.msc, and scroll down to the Zimbra desktop. Right click and then restart.

    Same problem today. When I start my PC it gives an error saying that can't connect with zimbra server.
    Click on Start->Run->services.msc->restart Yahoo! Zimbra Desktop Service
    And this gives me an error saying that Zimbra Desktop Service cannot restart in the local machine-Error 1: incorrect function.
    Any idea to solve this?
    Thanks.
