It's likely that something this program requires that's available on 14.04 isn't available on 12.04. Most likely, that "something" is LSB compliance (Linux Standard Base) - first thing to try is running apt-get install lsb and seeing if that resolves things. This problem is discussed a few places with definitive word likely to be here: ...

The solution came finally but on pieces so I am not sure if one piece is only needed or all of them but I will list them all here. Make sure you have a 64 bit version of Xulrunner. The version that worked with me is 1.9.2.13 and you can downland the file xulrunner-1.9.2.13.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2. extract it to /opt/ and this will create a new folder ...

So if you run for instance ls you get this error? Seems odd? Logging for apt is located in /var/log/apt/, you can read the .gz logs with zcat or zmore.

What dpkg wants is for both packages to have the same version. In principle it's the same package, but one is for i386 (32-bit) while the other is amd64 (64-bit). So you have two options: sudo apt-get install libuuid1:i386, in the hopes that this will install version 2.20.1-5.1ubuntu20.6 and resolve the conflict. sudo apt-get remove libuuid1:i386, ...

I've read a couple of the answers here and on other threads. What did it for me was to enable virtualization in BIOS like most are saying. However, for some reason, to get it to work, I also had to delete my Windows 7 virtual machine and create a new one (still with the same settings).

Obviously the package's name and meta information both tell apt-get that it is a 32bit package, but this was set up falsely by the maintainers. Until they have fixed this and updated their repository with a real 32bit package, I use the following script to verify the package's true architecture: #! /bin/bash dir=$(mktemp -d) debfile="*_i386.deb" cd "$dir" ...

I had this same problem, and mkasberg had the solution- to uninstall 32bit and reinstall 64bit. I had gone to google.com/chrome and downloaded the 64bit .deb as normal. I ran the .deb and google-chrome-stable was opened in the Software Center. Installed it, which went fine, but it turns out google-chrome-stable:i386 was installed instead. $ sudo apt-get ...

you can simply specify the architecture via -a in debuild: debuild -a i386 Although in most cases that won't work. pbuilder is a fantastic tool which provides you with a clean Ubuntu/Debian system inside you environment which you can specify the architecture of. man pbuilder has all the info you need you create your 32-bit archive. Here's a couple of ...

Instead Of using MS Office you can instead try WPS Office(A decent MS Office clone made by Kingsoft).It's free and best of all you don't even have to use Wine in order to run it!.I easily recommend it over LibreOffice as it has the ribbon interface and excellent compatibility with MS Office documents.If you want to try it the Linux version of WPS Office ...

Not sure about in 14.04, but at least in 15.04 steam is in the multiverse repository. that means that you can simply sudo apt-get install steam and it will install the required dependencies. No need to download a .deb file. Just adding this for future use.

Just add additional architecture: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 update your apt sources and it should work. See also: Can't install wine (or ia32-libs) in Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit

It seems your current architecture is amd64 (dpkg --print-architecture), so you've to add i386 to the list of architectures for which packages can be installed without using --force-architecture. So the full solution how to install wine, it would be sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ubuntu-wine sudo apt-get update sudo ...
