For the /usr/lib/ was not found

1) Get the libgfortran from command line.

apt-get install libgfortran3

2) Once downloaded, located the libgfortran and create a symbolic link to /usr/lib/

ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

[You have to find where the libgfortran was downloaded, mine was in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/]

3) Install again ArcReader
