Install ‘ia32-libs’ on Ubuntu 14.04

The ‘ia32-libs’ package for 32bit library support has been removed from Ubuntu. In order to do some flex debugging and get the Flash debug player working in my 64bit Ubuntu environment, I needed to install the 32bit libraries. I found this solution worked for me:

sudo apt-get install libc6:i386
sudo -i
cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
echo "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse" >ia32-libs-raring.list
apt-get update
apt-get install ia32-libs
rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ia32-libs-raring.list
apt-get update
