Pharo Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS 64-bit


It seems some people are having trouble getting Pharo to work on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS 64-bit.

Here is one way to make things work.

Pharo (the VM) is a 32-bit executable dynamically linked to a number of libraries, each of which has to be present in its 32-bit variant in order to run Pharo and/or to use all features.

On a clean, stock, fully updated Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS 64-bit, do the following (the X11, GL and asound libraries are not needed when you run headless on a server):

$ sudo apt-get install curl libc6:i386 libssl1.0.0:i386 libX11.6:i386 libGL.1:i386 libasound2:i386

$ curl | bash

$ ./pharo Pharo.image eval “ZnClient new get: ‘'”

$ ./pharo-ui Pharo.image



PS: You can use ldd to check if all dependencies of the VM and its plugins in the pharo-vm directory are satisfied
