Start the Ubuntu 14.04 LST packetmanager you might look for those mention in your error message. The names might be listed there, but only for migration reasons to multiarch, if not follow the link below.. I also recommend to use the proprietary drivers of your graphics card, the mesaGL driver will usualy not work very well with SL. (I don't use Unbuntu, I have Debian 7.0)

Take a look here about the 32 bit support with multiarch: http://askubuntu.com/questions/107230/what-happened-to-the-ia32-libs-package

Here's the command line that allowed me to run Second Life in 14.04 64-bit Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install lib32gcc1 libc6-i386 libxml2:i386 libxml2:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libpangoxft-1.0-0:i386

I also installed the following, but not sure if they were actually necessary:

sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0

Hi all! I had same problem in Debian 7. I have been resolving it several days and now found the solution.

You need to install ia32-libs-gtk ,

look here http://piccy.info/view3/7543361/e85024d0eea1af629d91bf0bf3ccf363/orig/

After that you need to run file "secondlife" in the terminal window as usual from corresponding directory (for example): 

nik@debian:~$ cd /home/niklance/install-folder/Second_Life_3_7_23_297296_i686

nik@debian:~/install-folder/Second_Life_3_7_23_297296_i686$ ./secondlife

 

A miracle happened! It works!

All the best guys!
