Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download latest UNetbootin for Linux (currently unetbootin-linux-581).
2. ./unetbootin-linux-581
3. Prompt returns without any messages or window appearing. Nothing resembling unetbootin is in process list.

Running Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit. Also tried executing with sudo; same behavior.

Probably don't have the 32-bit compatibility libraries installed. Try installing ia32-libs

Thanks. Thought it might be a 64-bit compatibility issue.

'apt-get install ia32-libs' wants to install 244 packages! Is there a way to install only the minimal dependencies for UNetbootin? I see there is an Ubuntu PPA, but it only has builds up through Precise, so unsure whether it will work.

Installing ia32-libs using sudo apt-get install ia32-libs on Ubuntu 12.10 desktop 64-bit did not resolve this issue.
