Unhappy Installing Lightscribe software and LaCie Lightscribe on my 64 bit Kubuntu 10.10 syst


I just recently built a 64 bit AMD Phenom quad core desktop. I have installed Kubuntu 10.10. I have an HP DVD burner with Lightscribe capability.
When I try to download and install the software using GDebi I get a message that states that it cannot install the 32 bit software on my 64 bit computer. I read the threads and none of them have worked " using the directions provided". Using the command line and force architecture I got an error message every time. Can anyone who has succeeded in doing this give me the commands in simple "newbie" English to I can use Lightscribe along with Lacie Lightscribe on my 64 bit computer?

Have you installed the 32-bit libraries required for this?

Code:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Then install the lightscribe package. (I believe you'll still need to use the force architecture flag.)

Lightscribe on 64 bit Kubuntu 10.10

I entered the script and it failed. I'm wondering if the fact that I have an AMD phenom quad 4 processor and the file has "Intel" may be the cause of the problem? I checked and I do have the ia32-libs . I downloaded the latest lightscribe debian file and it is located in the downloads folder. . When I enter the sudo dpkg-i--force architecture lightscribe-1.18.21.1-linux-2.6-intel.deb in konsole I get the following:
sudo: dpkg-I--force: command not found. Is there something I am missing? Also, I have Kubuntu 10.10 . I have 4 gigs of ram.

You're missing spaces for one.

Code:
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture

I re-entered the script with the spaces as your correction and I still got an error. sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture lightscribe-1.18.21.1-linux-2.6-intel.deb

Either the file name is wrong or you're not in the same directory as the file and you need to either move to the correct directory or use the full path to the file. You mentioned above it was in your Downloads folder, so try

Code:
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ~/Downloads/lightscribe-1.18.21.1-linux-2.6-intel.deb

So it was actually installed and you just re-installed it. That's not an error, it's a warning.
What's the problem? Did you follow the link I posted?

I can now see that the lightscribe driver software was installed! When trying to install the Lightscribe applications I tried to follow your link and it gave me the following error:
harry@harry-GeForce7050M-M:~$ sudo dpkg -i --force architecture lightscribe-/home/harry/Downloads/lightscribeApplications-1.18.6.1-linux-2.6-intel.deb
[sudo] password for harry:
dpkg: error processing lightscribe-/home/harry/Downloads/lightscribeApplications-1.18.6.1-linux-2.6-intel.deb (--install):
cannot access archive: No such file or directory
Errors were encountered while processing:

I'm a newbie and I apologize for my unintentional stupidity. I probably screwed up the script. I thought I would have to incorporate in the script where the file was located . Could you please write out the script again for installing the Applications. Also after I tried to install the LaCie Lightscribe "rpm" when I enter the Sudo 4L-gui the screen comes up , however, when I select my picture and then try to burn it a message states "you need to select a drive before you can print" ??? Any Ideas? Also , if I continue to fail at trying to install these programs would you be willing to access my PC remotely to give me more help???

I just would like to thank both Reed9 and lidex for their help. With your help I finally have both the 4L-gui and the Simple labeler working great-- Thanks again!
