I'm trying to get peazip running but I'm facing some trouble. When I run peazip I get the error:

peazip: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

From what I searched, I need to install emul-linux-x86-compat and emul-linux-x86-gtklibs. However, I didn't find those packages.

How can I resolve this ??

I had to install ia32-libs and it's working now.

To be able to install i32lib first open a Terminal and type the following;

dpkg --add-architecture i386 
apt-get update
apt-get install libc6:i386 

and then type:

apt-get install ia32-libs
