Thanks for the report.

Ubuntu 6.10 was the last officially supported PowerPC version of Ubuntu. I don't know what's up with the unofficial Ubuntu PPC builds, but Debian's works fine. If you want to grab a working package, you can take Debian's from:
http://packages.debian.org/sid/powerpc/librxtx-java/download

and then do "$ dpkg -i librxtx-java_2.2pre2-8_powerpc.deb" in the directory you downloaded it to. You should be able to install arduino after doing that.

affects: arduino (Ubuntu) → rxtx (Ubuntu)
Changed in rxtx (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
