Get LiveCode Running on 64 bit Linux

Getting LiveCode (or Revolution) to run on 64 bit Linux is fairly simple. Assuming that you have the latest version of your Linux distro installed (e.g. Ubuntu 12.10, 64 bit), enter the Dash, usually by clicking the top-button in the sidebar on the left and type “terminal” in the search field. You can now click the Terminal icon to start it. In other Linux distros, you have to find a different way to start the terminal.

Once you have started the terminal, just enter the following syntax:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch

When asked, enter your password and let it run. When it is finished, you can start Revolution or LiveCode and most other 32 bit applications.
