I am trying to install the transcription software Express Scribe. I have installed it just fine on my HP Chromebook 14, but now I'm trying to do it on my desktop. Here is what I started with:
sudo su tar -xvzf scribe.tar.gz sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386
Everything works fine up until this point; in fact, on my HP Chromebook 14, all I have to enter is the following:
And it automatically installs.
However, on my desktop running Ubuntu 14.04, it's apparently not as simple. After I enter that last command I get the following:
Please wait while installer is initialising..... Release Date: Fri Jan 30 00:51:58 IST 2009 Express Scribe 4.31 /tmp/selfextract.FKS8f2/bin/scribe: error while loading shared libraries: libasound.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Installation cancelled
So I have tried the following:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
And I get the following message:
Package ia32-libs 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: lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate
So I guess I'm stuck? Not quite sure what to do from here...
