I have problems installing GuitarPro 32bit on a 64bit system! I knew that the ia32-libs package will install most 32bit programs, so when I run :

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

The response is:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
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

Ok, so I run:

sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0

And they are already installed:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
lib32bz2-1.0 is already the newest version.
lib32ncurses5 is already the newest version.
lib32z1 is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

So I try to install my program with :

sudo dpkg -i gp6-full-linux-demo-r11621.deb

And the results:

Selecting previously unselected package guitarpro6.

The next command is :

And also:

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 gksu : Conflicts: gksu:i386 but 2.0.2-6ubuntu2 is to be installed
 gksu:i386 : Depends: libgksu2-0:i386 (>= 2.0.8) but it is not going to be installed
             Depends: sudo:i386
             Conflicts: gksu but 2.0.2-6ubuntu2 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

It will be removed! I really have no clue how to install this! any help will be appreciated!
