  • "On newer 64-bit DEB-systems with Multiarch-support (Debian 7) teamviewer_linux_x64.deb cannot be installed because the package ia32-libs is not available anymore on these systems. In this case you can use teamviewer_linux.deb instead." teamviewer.com/en/help/… – Oleg Svechkarenko Jan 16 '14 at 15:40

You've gotten the wrong package for use on 13.10, no need to manually install a downloaded .deb anyway

in terminal

sudo apt-get install libasound2:i386
  • Thanks for replying. Basically I am trying to install Teamviewer and it keeps asking for lib32asound and ia32-libs. However, I get the following error for both: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package ia32-libs:i386 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: lib32asound2 lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 E: Package 'ia32-libs:i386' has no installation candidate – user207639 Oct 26 '13 at 2:18
  • By saying I get the same error I mean that they both end up saying that "E:Package'package-name' has installation candidate" – user207639 Oct 26 '13 at 2:21
  • In the link above it is suggested that Saucy is not quite stable, yet. Could that be the case? – user207639 Oct 26 '13 at 2:25
