Default Running AC3D 8 on Linux

"ac3d" is a 32 bit dynamically linked binary program and requires external libraries to have been installed


To get AC3D running on 64 bit Linux, start by installing these packages (example from Ubuntu Linux - others may use different methods of package installation)

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386
sudo apt-get install libxmu6:i386
sudo apt-get install libfreetype6:i386
sudo apt-get install libstdc++6:i386

check "ldd ./ac3d" to see what libraries are needed.

To add OpenGL:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx:i386
sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa:i386

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62:i386
sudo apt-get install libtiff5:i386
sudo apt-get install libxft2:i386

All Linux system vary - please post your feedback (and Linux system) here.
