    What is /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch ?

    It has been mentioned here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...3#post12848203 but my /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/ folder is empty. My OS is Lubuntu 13.10.

    No idea. I have that folder empty in both 'Saucy' and 'Trusty', Ubuntu. However, I can double click on .deb files and they quite cleanly install/open with 'Software Center'.

    The context was difficulty installing 32-bit software on a 64-bit system.

    "apt-cache show multiarch support" has this:
    Description-en: Transitional package to ensure multiarch compatibility
    This is a transitional package used to ensure multiarch support is present
    in ld.so before unpacking libraries to the multiarch directories. It can
    be removed once nothing on the system depends on it.
    Oh, well ...

    This comment has:
    I recommend running dpkg --print-foreign-architectures rather than catting /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch. It doesn't exist after 12.04.
    and running the recommended command gives all of
    Code:
    [05:33 PM] ~ $ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures
