    One quick note that you will have to change: It appears that Java has released a new version, so you will have to change a couple of lines in your How-to, and I assume your script as well.

    In your How-to, I had to change the following lines:

    chmod 777 ./jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin
    ./jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin

    and

    cp -r -p ./jre1.6.0_02/* /usr/local/java32

    Everything else seemed to work perfectly.
    Thanks for the heads up. The howto has been changed. The script uses packages for 1.5, I just think its more stable. The howto can be used to upgrade the install if anyone wants to have the latest and greatest.

    Have you tried Feisty packages?

    Thanks for the suggestion and yes using the feisty packages for those files did allow me to install a 32 bit browser(swiftweasel).

    Basically I had to uninstall ia32-libs using synaptic. Then re-install it from the deb that I still had in my feisty(/var/cache/apt/archives) install along with the above two files. After that it was just a matter of following your script except for the java where I used ia32-sun-java5-bin from the gutsy repos and setup the appropriate symbolic link.

    I also locked the ia32-libs package in Gutsy and will leave it that way until the -gtk and -sdl files are compatible.

    Update:

    Today's updates appear to have sorted out any problems I was having with the ia32-libs files. After the update I was left with ia32-libs and the -gtk and -sdl files were uninstalled. Apparently locking ia32-libs had no effect.

    Anyway, I rebooted (as a precaution to ensure I was running with just ia32-libs) and Swiftweasel32 continued to work fine in Gutsy including flash and java.

    Unhappy Script won't run

    I extracted the files from ff32-3in1.tar.gz to a folder on my desktop called ff32-3in1. I open the folder and see two files, 3in1 and Readme. In the Readme, it says to double-click 3in1 and select "Run in Terminal". However, when I click on 3in1, nothing happens. I've also tried running 3in1 through the terminal, but there's no luck. I'm using AMD64 Kubuntu 7.04. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Do a right-click on the 3in1 and select properties - permissions. Make sure there is a tick mark in the box next to Execute.

    Yes, the box that says "is executable" is checked. Still nothing happens when I click on it, nor when I try to run it from a terminal.

    Kubuntu users may have to install ia32-libs-gtk through Adapt.

    Found that on the first page. Because you're using the 64-bit o/s you might need ia32-libs-gtk to get that script to execute.

    Still nothing. I can VIEW the script and read the code, but I just can't RUN the script.

    A couple other things you could try.

    When running from terminal try:

    Code:
    cd Desktop/ff32-3in1
    ./3in1
    You could try installing ia32-libs thru adept.

    Also, when trying in terminal you could you could type

    Code:
    sudo bash
    before the other two commands.
