All of my games are giving me this error: Message: SDL_GL_LoadLibrary Error: Failed loading libGL.so.1

I have found this HIB Games (Aquaria & Penumbra) cannot find libGL.so.1 even though it exists

but sudo apt-get install libg

l1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 wont work:

E: No se ha podido localizar el paquete libgl1-mesa-glx:i386
E: No se ha podido localizar el paquete libgl1-mesa-dri:i386

glxgears works fine and i have libGL:

visgean@rewitaqia:/opt/Aquaria$ locate libGL.so.1

Any ideas?


I found that entering

sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/libGL.so /usr/lib/libGL.so.1

is the solution.


An alternative solution is discussed at github.

Essentially it consists of deleting or renaming the following file.
