I want to install Red Suite 4 (search on Google shows this problem is with installing other apps too) on my 64bit machine.

I have installed the prerequisite packages: linux32 and ia32-libs (for 32bit support).

When I try to install the app I get this error:

 sudo ./Installer_Red_Suite_4_4.2.3_255_Linux-x86 
    invalid command name "bind"
        while executing
    "::unknown bind Text <Tab>"
        ("uplevel" body line 1)
        invoked from within
    "uplevel 1 $next $args"
        (procedure "::obj::Unknown" line 3)
        invoked from within
    "bind Text <Tab>"
        (procedure "::InstallJammer::InitializeGui" line 19)
        invoked from within
    "::InstallJammer::InitializeGui "
        (procedure "::InstallJammer::InitInstall" line 68)
        invoked from within
        (file "/installkitvfs/main.tcl" line 37049)

I've googled - InstallJammer is "Multiplatform GUI installer". What could be wrong - bind is bash command so I don't know what's wrong.

Can you run bind from the console? – LnxSlck Aug 17 '12 at 20:50
yes, bind works alright. – Primož Kralj Aug 17 '12 at 21:36

The problem was with missing 32bit gtk2 library. Check out this "bug" discussion.

My problem that caused exactly the same error message, was that I had mounted /tmp noexec.

The following will mount /tmp with execution rights:

sudo mount -o remount,exec /tmp
