Isn't it Java rather than the 32-bit libs you need for yEd? – Takkat Sep 24 '12 at 10:36

Open a terminal with Ctrl Alt T and paste the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

First command is only needed if your package index files are not updated. Anyway it is good idea to run it.
