I AM NEW TO UBUNTU, WHEN I INSTALLED 64 VERSION, I FOUND MY COMPUTER USELESS, AS DEFAULT PLAYERS were NOT ABLE TO PLAY ANY MEDIA. I TRIED INSTALLING VLC from official site, but there was nothin to download (i mean any exe file), i FOLLOWED da instructions, efficiently, and i think i need to know more! i am gettin error massag, shall i switch to 32 version..? any help.....? AWIJEET

WAY TO REPRODUCE IT, just try installing a avast linux antivirus.

50% of da idea suggested is working, but i still have problem in installing software, (deb packages) for example avast antivirus for debian,

i have installed 64 ubuntu version,

installer says it does not support da 32b packages,

 i am facing similar problem with other softwares...

(i hav even tried gdeb, And it jus asks password, 1st crap software discovered by me on linux)
