I am trying to install Wind River software development system. It doesn't explicitly support 16.04 but for 14.04 it requires:

# Ubuntu 14.04 - 64 bit
# Mandatory for running the installer
sudo apt-get install libstdc++6:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libXtst6:i386
# Optional packages for removing command-line warnings
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine:i386 libcanberra-gtk-module:i386 unity-gtk2-module:i386

This works fine on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:

$ sudo apt-get install libstdc++6:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libXtst6:i386

but on 16.04 LTS I get:

E: Unable to locate package libXtst6:i386

(the first two packages install ok).

How can I install libXtst6:i386?

  • Wich software requires you to install those packages? Where does it say you need those packages, or what instructions are you following? – M. Becerra Dec 13 '16 at 16:34

There is no package with capital letter in its name. This is a standard policy for Debian packages.

  • libXtst6:i386 wrong name
  • libxtst6:i386 correct name

See packages.ubuntu.com

Since it works on Ubuntu 14.04 and not 16.04, that means it's a Trusty package and not a Xenial package. Try downloading this package from launchpad.

  • Thanks for your answer, it did fix my problem but the answer below addresses the main problem I think, i.e. the package was mispelled. – DavidA Dec 13 '16 at 16:56
