    Hi,

    Yes I did in my desktop, but i can't install it in my servers and i have no idea why.

    A get the error : "One of the following libraries was not found : zlib.i386, libXi.i386, libXtst.i386, libXaw.i386"

    Are you with the same problem?

    The problem appears to be that the Newbler software is a 32-bit program getting run on a 64-bit system.

    Another user (Cappy) posted a thread a while back recommending getlibs, which automatically solves dependencies for 32-bit programs on 64-bit systems. Here is his whole thread, which lists a bunch of usage commands:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=474790



    INSTALL Get-libs

    Download getlibs-all from
    http://frozenfox.freehostia.com/cappy/


    Once downloaded (in ubuntu), software manager will prompt for an install. Then in a terminal command:

    getlibs
    this will download the 32-bit libraries and dependencies. Afterwards, retry the Newbler (gsAssembler) setup and it should work fine.

    Hi,

    Actually, NEWBLER is not a 32 bit program. It is 64-bit. The GUI is 32-bit, but the program itself is 64 bit. So,...if you want to use the GUI, you have to have 32 bit libraries installed.
