Hello,

I am attempting to install S4A on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS 64bit.

I attempted the suggested troubleshooting recommendations on the S4A site.


Fist of all, enable i386 packages and install ia32-libs

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install ia32-libs

Then install S4A:

dpkg -i --force-architecture S4A16.deb



However, I am not able to get past the "apt-get install ia32-libs"

Please see below, the output from command run:

apt-get install ia32-libs  ##<--- actual command run

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree      
Reading state information... Done
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:
  lib32ncurses5 lib32z1

E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate


apt-get install lib32ncurses5 lib32z1  ##<--- command run for suggest replacement libraries

You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 lib32ncurses5 : Depends: lib32tinfo5 (= 6.1-1ubuntu1.18.04) but it is not going to be installed
 s4a:i386 : Depends: libpango1.0-0:i386 (>= 1.24.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


apt install lib32tinfo5     ##<-- attempting to install missing library

 apt install libpango-1.0-0 ##<-- attempting to install missing library
Reading package lists... Done

libpango-1.0-0 is already the newest version (1.40.14-1ubuntu0.1).
You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 s4a:i386 : Depends: libpango1.0-0:i386 (>= 1.24.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


## Ubuntu Release information:
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=18.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=bionic
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS"



I would appreciate any help, hints, or suggestions.

Thank You

Hi Frank,

Yes you're right, these instructions are a bit outdated because the ia32-libs package is not available in latest versions of Ubuntu. You need to do the following steps:

1. Add i386 architecture and update:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

2. Try to install S4A:

sudo dpkg -i S4A16.deb

You'll see that some packages are missing:

3. If you make an 'apt-get install -f' probably the system will try to install them:

4. Just confirm the installation and there you go!
