Richmond, are you working with a 64 bit installation? If you are, do you
find ia32-libs listed in one of the gui software managers? It's listed
in the Mint Software Manager, but wouldn't install. To get this to
install in Mint, after several failures, I ran these commands in a terminal:
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get clean
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
sudo apt-get update
and then Software Manager successfully installed the libs. I don't have
much experience with apt-get and this was a shotgun approach based on a
forum thread discussing problems someone was having getting Firefox
installed in Mint 13. I'm happy running openSUSE and was only curious
about this problem Peter was having, but I have to say the Mint Software
Manager did not impress me :D
