Installing Aftershot Pro on Kubuntu 64-bit

Yet another problem when I installed Aftershot Pro on Kubuntu 13.10 64-bit.

I happily downloaded Aftershot Pro 64-bit installation package from Corel’s site and tried to install it by:

$> sudo dpkg -i AfterShotPro_amd64.deb

The package manager complained about ia32-libs was not installed.
I looked all over to find out how to install the ia32-libs lib on 64-bit but all solutions failed.

Then I stumbled over a forum thread asking the stupid question:

"Why not install the 32-bit version?" 

and the answer from the user was:

"It worked, thanks a lot!"

To install the 32-bit version of Aftershot Pro on 64-bit Kubuntu you have to run the command:

$> sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ./AfterShotPro_i386.deb

You also have to do the same for all updates.
