Install the package with wrong architecture

* Problem: you are running Ubuntu 64 bit, and the software package you want to install is  32 bit.
Gdebi-gtk will give you the following error message:
Error: Wrong architecture ‘i386’

* Solution: install the package from the command line with the –force-architecture option:
sudo dpkg -i –force-architecture NameOfPackage.deb
For example:
sudo dpkg -i –force-architecture skype-debian_2.0.0.72-1_i386.deb

  1. Man, really want to know how can you be that smart, lol…great read, thanks.

    • In fact, I have already used linux for 2 years. I begun using Ubuntu, next to Debian, and now I use Arch. Through that time, I had collected some tricks and docs about these OS, but I lost almost all of them when my hard disk sometime ‘s down. So that, I decided to back them up on Internet and this blog is one of the sources.
      Thanks to care.

  2. This article will assist the internet visitors for building up new website or even a blog from start to
    end.

  3. If you’re setting up a new company you may already be considering engaging the services of a chartered accountant to help you keep books and sort your accounts. Like anything else, the best protection for accounting fraud and theft is prevention. Their education focuses on tax laws and makes them qualified to handle matters like the preparation of estate tax returns or facilitating cases filed at a tax court, although they may also know the general workings of doing business accounting.

  4. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless just imagine if
    you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video
    clips, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Great blog!

  5. First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question
    that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin.

    Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

  6. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

  7. So today, I wish to take a look at five great reasons to purchase webhosting instead of going the 100 % complimentary route.
    Host – Gator VPS Hosting is a best bridge in between shared website hosting and having a dedicated server.

    Host – Gator supplies a complimentary tutorial section for a rookie to
    web hosting services.

  8. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog
    and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or
    advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
