Just switched over to Mint 64-bit from Ubuntu 14.04. I installed PlayOnLinux and when it starts up it complains that: "PlayOnLinux is unable to find 32bits OpenGL libraries. You might encounter problem with your games"

I have a ThinkPad with Intel integrated graphics per below:

me@X230:~$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
me@X230:~$ ldconfig -p | grep libGL.so.1
   libGL.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1
   libGL.so.1 (libc6) => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1

How do I work around this error?

Ok, I was doing some research this may be more difficult that I originally thought.
I was going to say you should install the 32-bit libraries, but it turns out this may be a driver problem with Intel.  I'm guessing you have the proprietary Intel video drivers installed because Mint should have allready done that.

It is a good idea to check anyways.

Go to:

  1. Menu
  2. Administrator
  3. Driver Manager (or Additional Drivers)
  4. Is Intel Proprietary checked?
  5. if Yes, then you are good
  6. If No, then check it and install drivers

If this doesnt' fix your problem, then I recommend opening synaptics package manager or Software Manager and search for ia32-libs or Multi-Arch

It really looks like you are missing 32-bit libraries to play most games.

I installed ia32-libs and it worked... that fixed it. I don't have propietary drivers installed...

You found them in the software manager?
I'm glad they still support it!

Will Driver Manager let you install the drivers?

I installed via CLI.

Driver Manager won't let me install anything...

OK, that is strange, but I have heard of that on laptops.  I have an Acer C710 Chromebook and Ubuntu automatically installed the drivers for me.

Are you able to play some games now?

I maybe one of those strange human beings who doesn't play games (or use PlayOnLinux for games). I was having issues installing Microsoft Office 2010. That's working now...

Can you recommend a game I should try...

Oh Nice!  Glad you could get Microsoft Office 2010 running.  That is quite an acheivement in my book.

As for games... it depends on what you like.  One of my favorites is Drakensang Online.  Its an Online Multiplayer Role Playing Game, but you can run around by yourself or join a group.

The reason I love it, because the download is 14 MB and it installs in seconds.  The maps load quickly and its absolutely FREE!

You can play for hours and hours, pretty fun game that cost nothing.

Open a terminal session

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

It will prompt you regarding a whole bunch of dependencies. I said yes to all.

Awesome,  Ubuntu stopped supporting those libraries.  So I'm glad Mint still has them.
