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 irc.freenode.net #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:
