Hi all,
I'm trying to run draftsight on a 64bit system. When I try to run the program from terminal there's a dependency problem with libdirectfb-extra. As follows:

e-desktop@edesktop:~$ sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture draftSight.
debdpkg: regarding draftSight.deb containing dassault-systemes-draftsight:i386, pre-dependency problem:
dassault-systemes-draftsight:i386 pre-depends on libdirectfb-extra (>= 1.2.7-2)
dpkg: error processing draftSight.deb (--install):
pre-dependency problem - not installing dassault-systemes-draftsight:i386
Errors were encountered while processing:

I've read many draftsight posts, but non of there solutions have helped (the ones I've read).

I've solved the problem through removing and re-installing libdirectfb-extra.

installing libcanberra-gtk-module:i386 and libcanberra-gtk0:i386 did it for me.
