rtc eclipse client doesn't run on Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit

Hi there

Has anyone gotten the RTC client for eclipse going on Ubuntu 14.04 x86-64 ?

My RTC server is using so I'm presently stuck with the RTC client  Trying to get the Linux plain zip of the RTC client for eclipse going on my Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit.   This RTC client is apparently only available in 32-bit form (so I believe).

This new Ubuntu has dropped support for ia32-libs so I've manually added the i686 architecture and done an apt-get upgrade and installed some 32-bit packages etc.

When I try to run the RTC client executable  i.e. jazz/client/eclipse,  it starts and then just ends.  No messages or other graphics appear. 

Not sure where to turn now other than going back to (say) Ubuntu 13.04 or 12.04.

Ok so I know that this isn't really an RTC question.  It's more about Ubuntu, but for those who are interested  ...

I was able to get the RTC client running on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit by re-adding the 32-bit package repositories back into Ubuntu.  Something like the following will do it ...

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
echo "deb raring main restricted universe multiverse" >ia32-libs-raring.list
apt-get update
apt-get install ia32-libs

If you want to use a 64-bit client, you can get a 64-bit version of Eclipse 3.6.2 and install RTC using the p2 zip.
