This has been brought up before but the posts are quite old. I appear to have the necessary files suggested in those posts anyway.

Getting message. "PlayOnLinux is unable to find 32bits OpenGL libraries. You might encounter problem with your games"

ive had this issue when i install 4.3.4 from the site, before first installing the version that comes with your distro.

I've seen that warning several times on different Mint PC's I use at home.

Mint still supports the ia-32libs package that can be installed with synaptics package manager.

This usually resolved the problem.... but in other Distros you have to manually install all the 32-bit packages yourself.
