It's because you don't have the lib32 libraries installed. I've got a jungle of them installed, so I can't tell you if the native debian/ubuntu packages worked or if I have custom stuff downloaded and manually installed into /usr/lib32... The program works, you just don't have the right libs. Since it's a 32bit application, you need 32bit libs installed in either /lib32 or /usr/lib32. I believe /usr/lib32 is generally the best place, and you have a few options:

Go through the Ubuntu packages installing the lib32* or ia32* libs until it works, or manually download the associated i386 libraries and manually install them. That takes a bit more creativity but isn't too hard, it's mainly just extracting the .deb to a folder and then copying everything in the /usr/lib or /lib (which ever one is present, depends on the lib) into /usr/lib32 until you meet the required libs and it stops complaining. Yeah it's lame work, but welcome to getting the few 32bit apps that aren't native 64bit to run. Arch Linux has a little better of a setup for that, but even it doesn't have everything.

[edit] If you manually do things, which you may or may not have to do, you NEED to use i386 libs and put them into /usr/lib32 for things to work. You DO NOT get x86_64/amd64 libs and put them in /usr/lib32, ONLY i386 libs will work in /usr/lib32.

Can you post how you got it working? If someone stumbles upon this thread in a similar situation it would help them. Glad it's working now though!

it was retarded easy. inside the tar.gz folder, there is an install file. double click on that and click run in terminal. follow the install...and i just used default install path. i had to google the install instructions to find the default install location, which was /filesystem/usr/local/bin and inside the bin folder is a packettracer file. double click, and click run.
