    I am trying to install ia32-libs package on Ubuntu 16.04, but i can’t do, how can i install what are the required dependencies?

    • Ravi Saive says:


      I think package ia32-libs has been deprecated. I think you’re trying to install a application that might depends on ia32-libs package. If you exactly tell us what you trying to do, we could help you out with better solution..

    It sounds a bit like a joke when you affirm that firefox
    “it’s not the world’s most used browser and still lags behind Chromium – the open source version of Chrome — in terms of features and functionality.”
    firefox is globally consuming less resources than chromium, it still has more extensions and plug-in than chormium (and much betters if you lok for adavnced feature) and the argument that chrome is more popular is not relevant for a GNU-Linux user (or he will use windows)
    I am not convinced at all by your top7 stuffs to do straight after installing ubuntu… I don’t really see anything very important apart of “sudo update &&. sudo upgrade”
    What about being able to see flash video? Isn’t that more important to many users than to have various packet manager – that do the same thing- installed?
    Spotify, skype… That’s realy what you “advice” to install and what you use as a GNU-Linux fan?
    Come on! We are expecting a bit more from you.
    It is certainly not recommended to install skype from microsoft in a GNU-Linux distibution, hell no!

    • Jesse says:

      point well made. thanks. i’ll update the article in nearer future. As for skype, it multi-platform and still remians one of the most used VoIP services around the world so it’s oly fair that i added it as one of the recommended apps to for those who may need it..

    No need to. That will be disabled by default.
