Linux 64 bit, is it possible?

Postby Widgeteye » Tue Nov 03, 2015 2:34 pm

I am running BTP on 32 bit Slackware desktop and it works fine. I purchased a 64 bit chromebook that I installed Ubuntu on and it is 64 bit. I cannot get BTP to run on it because it comes up with a missing library error. The library is actually there but I'm guessing the problem is it being 64 bit and BTP being 32 bit. Has anyone got BTP to run on 64 bit Linux? And if so, where can I find the hoops I must jump through? :)

Thanks

I ran into the same issue. Jeff attempted to help me in this thread:

But, ultimately I believe it was this thread that resolved my issues:

I do now succesfully run BeerTools Pro on my 64 Bit laptop running Ubuntu version 15.04
BTP 2.0.16 (Windows 7 64 Bit)

Later versions of Ubuntu x86_64 no longer provide the 32 bit dependencies that are necessary to run BeerTools Pro. So, if you are running 64 bit you need to do a little extra work to get the 32 bit BeerTools Pro binary to run.

Running these commands in the terminal may help:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386

FWIW if people are having trouble getting BTP running on 64-bit Linux I just installed libicu55:i386 and that got things up and running on Ubuntu 16.04.

Thanks for the update! I'm sure it will be helpful to others trying to get things up and running on 64 bit.
