64-bit and Library Information
Xojo and applications created with Xojo require these libraries:
On 64-bit Linux distributions, you will need to ensure the appropriate 32-bit compatibility libraries are installed in order to run Xojo or applications built with Xojo. Note that glib 2.0 might not be included in 32-bit library packages, so be sure to check or install it manually.
One of these commands usually works for Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch
Newer versions of Ubuntu may require additional steps as well:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch
For more information on Multiarch support: https://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/HOWTO.
