I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 server on a 64 bit machine and get this error when I try to run "sudo apt-get install ia32-libs"


Package ia32-libs is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source[/font][/color]


[color=#282828][font=tahoma, 'open sans', arial, sans-serif]E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate

A little research has shown that ia32-libs has been obsoleted in favor of multiarch. Any ideas?

Yes. I have one:

  • ia32-libs, or 32-bit compatibility libraries for 64-bit systems, is only available in the amd64repositories, i.e. if you are using a 64-bit version of Ubuntu.
  • You only get the "no installation candidate" error if you are already on a 32-bit system

Can you confirm that you have 64-bit Ubuntu? Type "uname -m" in terminal. For 64-bit it should be x86_64

some little problems


running Sync on 2 Win 7 machines and 1 Linux Server.
sync not deleting empty folders have been deleted on other machine.
sync not deleting some files on me other Win7 machine but still says Status: Synced.

1 comment:


i was using Sync to share some Visual Studio projects, but when working on them Sync locks some files to synchronize them.
this is really annoying because Visual Studio gives an error that the file is locked.

I am having issues installing sync on ubuntu 12.10 32bit, was under the impression it had to be installed as an tarball archive thing. After extracted I thought I would have to use the

$ tar zxf btsync.tar.gz

$ cd path-to-software/

# ./configure

# make

# make install

but the config file isn't in the archive i was emailed? This can't be installed via the package manager right?

There is section in User Guide, that describes installation on Linux.

Generally Sync is just a binary, so you need to unzip it and do

chmod +x ./binary_name and then start it. Then you have two options configure it using web access ip:8888 or using config file.

THANKS for the direction, have been looking forward to this software, not comfortable putting all my files on the cloud.
