I am testing Ubuntu 13.04 ARM on my Android phone. I want to try using Cisco Packet Tracer, I have installed it but it needs ia32-libs-gtk package to work. I tried to do

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk:i386

but still I can't get that package because "E: Unable to locate package ia32-libs-gtk". I am new at using Ubuntu. I was "Googling" about that problem like for half an hour but what I mostly saw is some old (~2011) topics not really helping. How can I install that package?

You might want to try:

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386

I had to add gtk2-engines-murrine:i386 because a theme I was using required it and skype looked ugly without it. Using Ubuntu 13.10.

Hi! sorry for no response, some time passed but now I need to get CPT working on Ubuntu 13.10 this time. Your command doesn't work (Unable to locate package), also tried solutions from here: but it always ended with package not being able to be located. Can you please help me? :) – TheReduxPL Mar 11 '14 at 21:24
Hmm... Have you seen this question? – jeremija Mar 12 '14 at 8:34
this question is not related to my problem because I have already installed Cisco Packet Tracer - but it's not starting. – TheReduxPL Mar 12 '14 at 19:55
@TheReduxPL I know this is old, and i'm not trying to necro-rez, but did you get it working? I've got the same problem. – Hellreaver May 3 '15 at 7:06
