[chandler-users] Installing chandler on Ubuntu 64 bit

That's because the included icu library is compiled for 32-bit systems. 
I ran into the same problem (albeit with the tar file, not the deb) and 
solved it with 'getlibs', which identifies and installs compatibility 
packages needed to run a given executable. I'd imagine it will work 
even better with .deb packages because those explicitly declare all 

You can download getlibs from 
http://www.boundlesssupremacy.com/Cappy/getlibs/getlibs-all.deb and 
install it with 'dpkg -i getlibs-all.deb'. In my case, I then switch to 
the directory where I unpacked chandler's tgz file and 
run 'getlibs ./chandler'. You may want to check its documentation (or 
the thread on Ubuntu forums: 
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=474790) to see whether it's 
run differently in the case of .deb packages.
