Dependency problems installing DEB package

I'm getting an error when trying to install heimdall_1.3.2_i386.deb on Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit. 'sudo dpkg -i heimdall_1.3.2_i386.deb' gives:

(Reading database ... 207073 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace heimdall 1.3.2 (using .../heimdall_1.3.2_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement heimdall ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of heimdall:
heimdall depends on libusb-1.0-0 (>= 2:1.0.8).

dpkg: error processing heimdall (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
But doing 'sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0.0' gives the following error:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting 'libusb-1.0-0-dev' for regex 'libusb-1.0.0'
Note, selecting 'libusb-1.0-0' for regex 'libusb-1.0.0'
libusb-1.0-0 is already the newest version.
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
heimdall:i386 : Depends: libusb-1.0-0:i386 (>= 2:1.0.8) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
From some tutorial I online it said I should do 'sudo apt-get install libusb-ocaml libdevice-usb-perl libusb-0.1-4 libusb-1.0-0 libusb-1.0-0-dev libusb-dev libusbprog-dev libusb++-0.1-4c2 libusb++-dev libusbtc08-1 libusbmuxd-dev libusbprog0 libusbmuxd1', but I get the following:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package libusbmuxd1
So I'm running out of ideas, any idea how I can install this package?

The problem is that you are trying to install a 32 bit app on a 64 bit system. In order to do so, you need the 32 bit dependencies for the 32 bit app. You should instead find and install the 64 bit version of heimdall.

Look for it here:

Why are you trying to install the 32bit version of heimdall if your system is 64 bit? And why are you trying to install heimdall if it's already installed?
