Add 32bit package support for Debian/Ubuntu/Mint

Many applications which look for 32bit packages on your Debian/Ubuntu/Mint packages would need ia32-libs packages. Earlier it was possible to get this package installed and later on it has been removed from all distributions. The best way to get back the 32bit package support is to add the architecture to dpkg as follows:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
