Installation on 64-Bit Linuxes


If you have a 64-bit Linux, you may have to install additional 32-bit libraries.

On the latest Ubuntu or Debian 64 bit (Wheezy), please do:

aptitude install multiarch-support binutils-multiarch
dpkg --add-architecture i386
aptitude update
aptitude install libX11-6:i386 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:i386 
                    libgtk2.0-0:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386

The last two lines are actually one line.

Ubuntu users may have to add the multiarch sources in /etc/apt/sources.list


On older Ubuntu or Debian 64 bit distributions, do:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

 
In addition, you may need:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk

 
See also Running 32-bit Applications on 64-bit Debian GNU/Linux.

If the program says it cannot find the sqlite3 libraries, you can download them from here (choose the i386 version), and install the downloaded file with these two commands at a root command prompt:

dpkg -X your_downloaded_lib_file_i386.deb /emul/ia32-linux     (Enter)

ldconfig     (Enter)
