Ubuntu – Installing 32-bit libraries on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit

software installation

Basically simple question: is it possible to install 32-bit libraries on my 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04 LTS box? I need to run an app which requires 32-bit support.

The information found on this forum is all about older versions, and I as not able to filter out all static.

If those libraries are still supported, how do I then get those installed on my box? So far what I tried only led to errors like "Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate" or "Failed to fetch".

Best Answer

It appeared that the following commands were working for me:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386

I found it here: How to run 32-bit app in Ubuntu 64-bit?
