At navicat wiki, to run navicat, need install all 32 bit libraries with this command :

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

This command work fine before ubuntu 13.10, but on 13.10 box, me get this error :

Package ia32-libs is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0

E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate

I have install the suggested package :

lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0

but navicat still won't run. Please,, help me..

"ia32-libs" has become obsolete. Have a search for a version that is about "multiarch". See this for an explanation: – Rinzwind Jan 7 '14 at 12:07

After installing lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 packages,additionally you have to install wine to run navicat.

sudo apt-get install wine
