I update the thread. I hope it will work better.

Enjoys.

I know this thread is kind old, but I'm still finding it pretty helpful! Also even though Ubuntu is about to get real multiarch support, I imagine you could follow this guide practically verbatim for any of the less fortunate distros as long as you have a utility to unpack the debs. Anyway, if anyone is interested here are the updated links for the 32 bit libs:

And 32-bit wxGTK libs

Hopefully multiarch in 12.04 fixes all these problems. I'm using Gentoo on my main box though, so I'll probably be using workarounds like this for the forseeable future.

Edit: To get it to load you need a couple of additional wxGTK libs:

http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu//pool/unive...0_i386.deb
http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu//pool/unive...0_i386.deb

At this point it's loading for me, but the audio and video plugins aren't showing up, so I can only assume I need to acquire the 32-bit gl and portaudio libraries before I can use them. I don't have any more time to mess with it right now, but I'll go back later tonight and see if it works, and if it does I'll post another edit with links to all the required packages. Also definitely check out the first page of this thread, 10th post, because juchem shows how to make a simple shell script that directs pcsx2 to look for its libraries in any directory you want, and that saves you from having to screw around in your system libs.

You can still use some multiarch feature of previous Ubuntu to easily download the package
Code:
apt-get download libwxgtk2.8-0:i386
Then you can extract the package in the current dir with dpkg
Code:
dpkg -x libwx*.deb .

Anyway, for future Ubuntu, the best is to go for full multiarch support.

Yeah definitely. I tried it out on my my laptop running Ubuntu and it was totally painless and worked immediately. 'Bout time a linux distro bit the bullet and got real multiarch support. I was just interested in this because I wanted to see if it would load properly when I fetched all the libraries manually. My HTPC is running Gentoo right now and as far as I can tell the multiarch support is still pretty flaky there. I was never able to get the graphics and sound plugins to load though :/

Edit: Sorry, I just realized how ambiguous and unclear that post actually was. I was doing all this running Ubuntu 11.10 because I was curious to see if it would work for me, but then when it didn't work I just upgraded to 12.04 and pulled the copy from the ppa. I was sort of envisioning figuring out all the right libraries I needed and then just stuffing them in a folder, copying them to my gentoo installation and using that shell script so PCSX2 would know where they were without having to mix them in with my other libraries.
