Trouble running Iron Browser Ubuntu 12.04 32bit
I've recently discovered the Iron Browser which seems to me to be the perfect internet browser. I've gone to the download pages here and have downloaded the Debian based version (32 bit since that's what I run) and when it didn't work I also tried the "standard" version with the .tar.gz because I've been able to extract and run those files before. Both to no avail. In the comments on that page, I came across this

Unfortunately, iron64.deb isn't working on my Ubuntu 12.04 64bit system.

I install it and nothing happens. I had to uninstall it, and then reinstalled an older version.

On ubuntu 12.04 (64bit) enter in terminal:
sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
and iron start normaly.

That worked! Wonderful, many thanks!"

Now, DigitalMan is running Ubuntu 12.04 like me, but the 64bit version. I tried the command acer5513 wrote and there was no effect. Is there a way I can type in the same command but for a 32 bit version?

Hi 9sp7ky3,

Download x86_64 version of Iron Browser. Or you could download x86 libraries for Iron Browser.

You mean download the 64 bit version? Even though I'm runnning the 32 bit version?

I have this problem also, running the 64-bit 12.04. Apparently SRWare has problems with 12.04 and they didn't fix them for 12.10 either. I love Iron and run it on my Windoze machine, also when I boot my Windoze machine into Precise Puppy 5.7.1. I posted to their forum, and so far their moderator has not approved the message (been well over a week). I've also posted to UbuntuForums, and not gotten enough help yet.

I liked the idea of downloading an older version of Iron, I'll try that.
