Connect to postgresql 9.2 server in openSUSE 13.2

I tried to connect to my postgresql server after upgrading to openSUSE 13.2 from 13.1 using the guide from
That resulted in this error message:

psql: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
        Is the server running locally and accepting
        connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432"?

There was no files in /var/run/postgresql/. So that explained why it could not connect to that Unix domain socket.
So where was the socket? Reading this answer I found that I could run this command to figure out where the socket was:
~> netstat -nlp | grep 5432
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info

Get Notes 9.0.1 to run on openSUSE 13.1

I installed openSUSE 13.1 just a week after its release. Unfortunately IBM Notes 9.0.1 crashed so I had to revert back to 12.3 since I wasn't able to fix the issue on my own.

By now the community have done what they do best and come up with a solution that makes it possible to run Notes 9 on openSUSE 13.1.

The issue was reported on the lotus forum.

In the response from Ben Kevan there was a link to a workaround that could get notes to run on openSUSE.

Apparently there is a bug that might be related to KDE. It has been filed on the KDE Bugtracking System as bug 329445.

Btw I am using the 64 bit version of openSUSE.
