Having bought Trine 2 on the Humble Indie Bundle, I can play the game on Ubuntu 13.04 after having installed the ia32-libs package.

This package has been deprecated in Ubuntu 13.10 and the game no longer works from this version of Ubuntu.

I have a done a fresh install and am unable to get the game working. Can someone help?

Yesterday I was facing the same problem and found the answer in this thread.

So, you have to install the missing 32-bit libraries in the following way:

sudo apt-get install package-name:i386

For me the required packages were:


I installed them step by step and checked the still missing libraries after each package by entering following commands in the Trine 2 install directory (the first one is enough only once):

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./lib/lib32
ldd bin/trine2_linux_32bit | grep "not found"
ldd bin/trine2_linux_launcher_32bit | grep "not found"

If further not found libraries remain after installing these five packages, please check the above thread how to find out the package name of a library.
