I installed the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English 5 on Ubuntu 12.04 (64bit), it's completely installed; but when I want to run it, nothing happens.

also in terminal generates this error :

./ldoce5-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

and after try :

sudo apt-get install libgtk1.2

generates this error :

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package libgtk1.2
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libgtk1.2'
