Installation of tcl8.5 (32-bit) on ubuntu 12.04 64-bit - Any issues?

Posted by vswamy on 2014-02-16 22:22

- Downloaded "ActiveTcl8.5.15.0.297577-linux-ix86-threaded "
- run the install.sh but, that failed with error saying ./payload/bin/wish8.5 - no such file or directory
- I have manually install tk from ubuntu repos and have changed the install.sh to point to /usr/bin/wish8.5

Observation:

(i) The above steps helped me get the GUI for installation but, installation failed when it tried to open teacup with error "no such file or directory"

(ii) overall, What I am guessing is: all the 32 bit binaries that are part of active tcl 32-bit pkg is throwing the same error like no such file or directory.

Is there any fundamental thing that I am missing.

please help me in getting my tcl running.

appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance!

I have solved it with the following

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
