  • Linux Lite: 3.8 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Xeon Dual CPU's E5645 2.4GHz 12 Cores

  • MEMORY: 16Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: nVidia GeForce GTX 960
IMPORTANT: Only resort to this method if there are no 64bit hardware drivers for your peripheral.

For: Printers, Scanners, Webcams, Game controllers etc.

Peripherals - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peripheral

Scenario:

You have a label printer, the hardware vendor only provides 32bit drivers but you are using Linux Lite 3.x 64bit.

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386
Install your hardware vendor 32bit debian packages.

Done.
