I'm trying to run import.io on ubuntu 14.04 64 bit. It says

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gail"
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "atk-bridge"

In synaptic they seem installed, which is confusing, unless I'm looking at different packages. So I wounder how to install them using apt-get?

Packages You are looking for are in i386 arch;

apt-get install libatk-adaptor:i386 libgail-common:i386

I had the same problem with gvim in 16.04. There, the 64bit libraries helped:

apt-get install libatk-adaptor libgail-common
