I did a fresh install of Xubuntu 14.04. Executables like Opera Mobile Emulator no longer work. I have already tried the solutions from:

No such file or directory for existing executable

64bit Ubuntu 14.04, running 32bit binaries

Though the error message is not showing up, Opera emulator does not fire up. Any help would be great.

Update: The commands already tried are:

dpkg --add-architecture i386

apt-get install ia32-libs - doesn't work, deprecated

apt-get install libsdl1.2debian:i386

apt-get install libstdc++6:i386 libgcc1:i386 zlib1g:i386 libncurses5:i386

apt-get install libc6-i386 lib32stdc++6 lib32gcc1 lib32ncurses5 lib32z1

Please edit your question and explain a bit more. Show us the command you are running, explain how you installed it, tell us if this is a fresh install of 14.04 or if you have upgraded from an older Ubuntu release. – terdon May 1 '14 at 10:30

The same rings true. You need to install what it needs. You can usually find out what it needs by running it in a command line and interpreting the errors and just installing the :i386 versions of those packages.

In this case...

sudo apt-get install libqtgui4:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386

... Should be enough.

Yup. Qt libs did the trick. Thank you. – amarprabhu May 1 '14 at 10:51
