Skype is a 32-bit application and 32-bit applications need 32-bit libraries. If an application needs many libraries and it is a 32-bit one it obviously needs many 32-bit libraries.
Because your system is a 64-bit system, and has almost no 32-bit packages / libraries installed by default. On a 64-bit system, 32-bit packages, contrarily to 64-bit packages, can take advantage only of a few already installed packages / libraries: those few installed by default and those installed manually. On a 64-bit system the 64-bit version of almost ...
cd $HOME/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak cd $HOME/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak Type these into the terminal; it worked for me.

What you probably need to do is just is try a newer wine version - there is a database of apps that have been tested under wine, and FarCry is rated Gold/Platinum there with most recent versions and OSs. Using PlayOnLinux etc with a particular wine version will often work - but often newer wine versions will work, perhaps better - the info that says 'this ...
I decided to troubleshoot the problem myself and finally found a workaround. The first thing you have to do is to activate support for the installation of 32-bit applications in your 64-bit system. You do this by running this shell command: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 After that, all you have to do is to update the APT database: sudo apt-get ...
This could also be the outcome of a Java OpenJDK7-bug. Possible reference: Question 697515 Graphical Issues with Kubuntu
A simpler answer is that Linux Skype was written quite some time ago and is being maintained, not rewritten, currently. At some point in the future, there will be few or no 32bit users left, and they might rewrite at that point. A longer view is that you can fairly easily add 32bit libs to your system and run the 32bit app, while a 32bit user cannot do the ...
I have had the same but this was when gnome-flashback has been installed once removed everything seemed to go back to normal. Try doing an update, upgrade and distribution upgrade. As this was broken by a gtk update.
32-bit and 64-bit refer to the size of memory registers in a computer's CPU. How do you suppose a 32-bit kernel should do that? A 32-bit kernel can run 32-bit software. A 64-bit kernel can run 64-bit software and 32-bit software. You need a 64-bit kernel to run 64-bit software. The only way to use 64-bit software on a 32-bit system is with ...
I had the same problem on Ubuntu 15.10, with an nvidia board. WPOH's solution made Steam work, but caused noticeable performance and mouse lag issues on some games. Using the proprietary nvidia drivers fixed the problem without impacting the performance. To revert those changes: mv ...
Some programs using wine for some reason will hide text and other things if they use openGL. (A good example is using RuneScape client with openGL) Another thing is that openGL sometimes won't display correctly with certain video cards, your specific card has good support for Direct3d9 but much less support on openGL.
