You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: libc.so.6

ia32-libs would be my initial guess. Aside from libc of course. ;)

I C&P'ed both of them. Terminal tells me that there is no order as such. I'm a total Linux/Ubuntu noob so dont wonder if this sounds dumb...

If you send me e-mail at slouken@gmail.com, I'll try to help you offline.

Thanks!

Can you also report a bug at github so we can track the progress of fixing this?

Thanks!

I'm getting the same error, i sent you an email as well
charis Feb 24, 2013 @ 3:59pm 
is there anyone else having this same problem? Ubuntu 12.10 here.

unable to locate package libgl1-mesa-dri
unable to locate package libgl1-mesa-glx
unable to locate package libc6
press enter to continue...

when you press enter an error dialog pops up that says: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: lib.so.6

i have that exact same problem

i do find it odd it says that in the terminal but for the error message it just says

You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
libc.so.6

You're running 12.10 64 bit, right?

I virtualboxed both x64 and x32. I got the same issue with x64 and kept hitting road blocks, just like this issue. Installed 32, and had no issues and ran perfectly.
charis Feb 24, 2013 @ 4:26pm 
wow, why am i running 64-bit? i went off of the link on one of the Steam pages. this might be the problem. i don't have a 64-bit system, but then i did let the install run overnight. perhaps it defaults to a 64-bit install.

Thanks to Aikari Tsero, we figured this out.
It's happening with wubi 12.10 64-bit, and here's a little script to runt o fix it:

if [ "$(dpkg --print-architecture)" = "amd64" ] && ! dpkg --print-foreign-architectures | grep i386 >/dev/null; then
echo "Fixing architectures..."
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
fi

I'm going to add this to steamdeps so it's automatically taken care of in the future.

Thanks!

It has nothing to do with the wubi x64 install. It is inherant to the x64 install.
slouken Feb 24, 2013 @ 4:49pm 
Neo Omega, I just did a fresh 12.10 install with iso downloaded from Ubuntu.com and it worked fine. Maybe an older disk image didn't include i386 foreign architecture by default?

Had this issue with Wubi 12.10 x64 and this fix solved it, thanks!
Neo Omega Feb 24, 2013 @ 5:05pm 
If that is the case, that is what it seems to be. So, therefore 12.10.2 amd64 has no issues? Then those who pulled x64 from unetbootin as I did several days ago and installed via usb may have this issue.
