No input window for ibus in libreoffice

I recently found that ibus failed to detect input window in libreoffice. It turned out the issue is related with an incomplete installation of libreoffice, and it can be easily fixed using the command below.

sudo aptitude install libreoffice-gnome

32bit skype problem with audio playback on 64bit Debian

Even though there is a 64bit Skype for downloading, Skype is somewhat not fully supported by 64bit Linux operating systems. 64bit Skype still relies on some 32bit libraries. This issue is addressed in Debian Wiki. I took the Multi-arch solution to install 32bit Skype on an AMD64 OS. It turns out that the instructions listed on the Debian wiki is incomplete in some sense. I followed everything listed and yet couldn’t enable audio playback on the 64bit Skype. What I needed to do is just to install the 32bit pulseaudio library, and then 32bit Skype works like a charm!

sudo aptitude install libpulse0:i386
