Hi,

just for the record, I have finally managed to run Botanicula on the MATE/64-bit edition of LinuxMint 13.
Here's my story:

* I downloaded botanicula-20120501-amd64.tar.gz
* checked the md5sum
* unpacked it as ~/bin/botanicula
* ~/bin/botanicula $ ./install.sh

However, the newly created Botanicula menu entry did not work, and launching via terminal gave:

robert@teox ~/bin/botanicula $ ./botanicula
./botanicula: 3: ./botanicula: bin/adl: not found

Then I found out that this is a 32-bit binary!

robert@teox ~/bin/botanicula $ file bin/adl
bin/adl: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, stripped

So I simply had to install the package ia32-libs to make Botanicula work on Ubuntu and its derivates!
Code:
$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

This really should be documented in Botanicula's README file.
The corresponding Suse package seems to be called "ia32el". No idea about the state in Fedora.

Best regards,
Robert
