The Powder Toy on Ubuntu 12.10, 64bit

One of my favorite programs is a physics simulator of sorts, called "The Powder Toy."

I noticed on Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit edition, that it failed to run.

After insuring libSDL was installed, I still couldn't get it to run.

It wasn't until someone mentioned on #ubuntu (Ubuntu's official IRC help channel) that I would need to install ia32-libs that I finally got it to work again.

I thought I would post this for anyone else that was having problems with The Powder Toy.

And if you never heard of it before, and find yourself intrigued, check it out here:
