TweetDeck Ubuntu 64bit.


I started using TweetDeck recently. It seems to work rather well but there were a couple problems after the installation on my 64bit Ubuntu system.

I was getting the following error when running from the command line

Error loading the runtime ( cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

To fix this error you should just need copy the to the lib32 directory

$ sudo cp /usr/lib/ /usr/lib32

If you still get other problems you may also need to install a couple other libs.

The best way to do this is to use a package called getlibs. This system automatically resolves 32bit lib problems on 64bit systems.

You can download the deb package from

Then run the following command to download and install all the libs

$ sudo getlibs -l \ \

TweetDeck should now be ready to go.
