I have done this a while ago, and now I don't have any more troubles for 32Bits dependancies

Thanks for the suggestions. I had already enabled MultiArch using the command:

Code: Select all

dpkg --add-architecture i386

That installed lots of lib32 packages. And, as I said above, before I enabled MultiArch, dpkg would fail and not even let me intsall the .deb package of Scrivener. But now even with MultiArch, I get the error mentioned above. Any other thoughts?

I solved my problem, after reading this post about how ia32-libs has been deprecated in favor of enabling multiarch: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 0&t=122296.

I followed the instructions for enabling multiarch there, including the modification of sources.list, which I don't know if that was done before or not.

Then when I ran synaptic it told me I had a broken package, which turned out to be an older version of Skype I was running. So I marked Skype for complete removal, which curiously caused synaptic to say that removing Skype required installing several packages, including the one I was missing (libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0:i386). All four packages installed at this point were:

libgstreamer0.10-0:i386
liborc-0.4-0:i386
libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0:i386
libqtwebkit4:i386

After that Scrivener ran fine! And installing the newest version of Skype worked too, without messing anything up.
