How to install activinspire on ubuntu 14.04

19 gennaio 2016

Activinspire in ubuntu 14.04
In synaptic I add the repository for activinspire 12.04 precise:

deb precise oss non-oss

close synaptic without update.

Then, in a terminal:

sudo apt-key add Promethean.asc

I don’t know if it’s really necessary:
sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib

Now install the whole ia32-lib instead, try the following order:

sudo -i
cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
echo “deb raring main restricted universe multiverse” >ia32-libs-raring.list
apt-get update
apt-get install ia32-libs

PS: In this way, you can install ia32-libs. However, we add the source of 13.04 instead, so, there may be some problem unknown。After install ia32-libs, I recommend you to remove the ia32-libs-raring.list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d, and do sudo apt-get update. I have do this with sudo nautilus command.

Now I had to ceate the  /usr/local/lib32 directory
     sudo mkdir  /usr/local/lib32
Then I had to correct the name of the libjpeg32 library (from 8 to 8.0.2) and thus the suggested command becomes
  sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/local/lib32/

At the end:
sudo apt-get install activinspire

and the other packages of your language

That’s all!

Remember of calibrate the whiteboard!
