    ubuntu 12.10 (64bits) unable to install i386 libs

    When trying to install steam (dpkg -i steam.deb)

    I get the following errors
    Selecting previously unselected package steam.

    Re: ubuntu 12.10 (64bits) unable to install i386 libs

    Sounds like it's complaining about a package you've pinned to me, check for any held packages

    Code:
    apt-cache policy
    Scroll through the output and look for a section called "Pinned packages" is anything there?

    There goes my idea, no pinned packages.

    I think that the issue is that the version of the 64bit libcairo2 does not match the 32 bit one. I do not know how to work around that. If I can install libecairo2:i386. I might be able to fix the problem. Any ideas?
