    This guide is only meant to be used for 64-bit systems. If you're using a 32-bit system then you can just install the wink and libstdc++5 packages without any modifications or extra steps. The ia32-libs package contains 32-bit libraries for use on a 64-bit system so don't worry about installing that package for an i386 system.

    If you are using a 64-bit system then just type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

    right, i'm running lucid 64 (intel, not amd). i can't get the 32 libraries.

    mantra@mantra:~$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

    Try running "sudo apt-get update" and then "sudo apt-get install ia32-libs". If nothing else works you can download the package and install it manually here.

    Re: How to install Wink for Ubuntu 8.04 [64-bit]

    i tried sudo apt-get update more than a few times. the link you sent me is also one I found, but again, only for amd and not intel architecture.

    i just can't seem to find an intel one....

    Re: How to install Wink for Ubuntu 8.04 [64-bit]

    What does the following command output on your system?
    Code:
    uname -m
    The ia32-libs package can be installed on either amd64 or ia64 systems. There aren't separate packages for 64-bit Intel cpus. Have you tried to install the amd64 package on your system using dpkg?
    Code:
    wget -P ~/Desktop "http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/i/ia32-libs/ia32-libs_2.7ubuntu26_amd64.deb"
    sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i ~/Desktop/ia32-libs*.deb
    If nothing else works you might try using the getlibs package.
    Code:
    wget -P ~/Desktop "http://frozenfox.freehostia.com/cappy/getlibs-all.deb"
    sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/getlibs*.deb
    With getlibs installed you can then try to download any missing libraries for wink.
    Code:
    wget -P ~/Desktop "http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/w/wink/wink_1.5.1060-6_i386.deb"
    sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i ~/Desktop/wink*.deb
    getlibs /usr/lib/wink/wink

    yeah the forcing architecture install ended badly. didn't like it.

    mantra@mantra:~$ uname -m
    i686
    mantra@mantra:~$

    i tried the other stuff, and it was error filled as well, but now when I open wink, i get

    /usr/lib/wink/wink: error while loading shared libraries: libexpat.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    mantra@mantra:~$
    mantra@mantra:~$ aptitude search libexpat.so.0

    Re: How to install Wink for Ubuntu 8.04 [64-bit]

    Well, I don't think you have a 64-bit OS installed. The version of Ubuntu you're running appears to be the 32-bit version. Regardless of whether your cpu supports 64-bit you still have to install the 64-bit version of the OS. Since you appear to be running a 32-bit OS you shouldn't have to install the ia32-libs package which would also explain why it wasn't found in the software repository when you ran "apt-get install ia32-libs."

    I would recommend running the following to purge the ia32-libs package from your system.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --purge ia32-libs
    Then make sure you have libexpat1 installed.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libexpat1
    And finally create a symlink to the libexpat library. If the first command throws an error just ignore it. I can't remember if there is a symlink installed in the wink folder by default so it may state something like "file not found."
    Code:
    sudo rm /usr/lib/wink/libexpat.so.0
    sudo ln -s /lib/libexpat.so.1 /lib/libexpat.so.0
    sudo ln -s /lib/libexpat.so.0 /usr/lib/wink/libexpat.so.0
