[Solved] running 32 bit program on 64 bit system

Apologies if this has been answered innumerable times, but no clue what search term to use.

Okay, I just installed a 64 bit copy of bunsen helium and am trying to get it set up. So far so good.

But now I am trying to use my treasured old programs.

wine was very helpful saying the wine(64) installed could not run the 16 bit windows program, but gave me a sequence of commands to install multiarch and the 32 bit version of wine.That works.

Now I want to use the programs I have written using the 32 bit Freebasic. They are complaining that they can't find libXpm.so.4.   That is on my system, but in a 64 bit directory. I assume I will need a 32 bit version, so how do I install that?

Thanks,
David

Since you say that you have enabled multiarch, you can install it using APT.

$ sudo apt install libxpm4:i386

If you haven't enabled multiarch, enabled it first. If not, just install it.

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

There is a deb package too - https://packages.debian.org/stretch/i38 … 4/download.

Let us know if it works.

^ Good to hear that.

If you plan on using more programs using wine, I would recommend doing it through Play On Linux. It's much easier to manage.
