amd64 "no such file or directory" error with Android and Skype

Using an amd64 debian (lenny and kubuntu jaunty) install I came across the least informative error message yet:

bash: adb: No such file or directory

and similarly for skype.

This appears to be due to not yet having installed the i36 compatibility libraries:
apt-get install ia32-libs
and it goes away.

  6. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!

    Spent half the day trying to figure this out. Just installed Linux(Ubuntu) for the first time to do some android stuff and I could figure out why adb wouldn't work when it was right there!!

    Thank you.

    The original post is 2.5 years old and we still experience this problem!?
    I always have a feeling that Google software is somehow undercooked.
