I have searched slightly in the general and couldn't find anything in the AMD section, If you have a link for the thread for Radeons please supply

What are you running? Also are you running whatever it is on VirtualBox or native?

I suspect you need to do sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 but with such little detail about your system and ubuntu installation it's not easy to figure out whether that's definitely the case.

I searched the forum for "wrong architecture i386" and got 372 pages of results, the first three pages of which detail the EXACT same problem you have (didn't look after the first 3 pages).

Can you at least tell us what you are running?

I assume you are using the 64-bit version of Ubuntu 12.10: you need to install 32-bit libraries to run 32-bit applications.

This command should get you up and running:

$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch

and if that doesn't work check out these how tos:
