Squeak for Ubuntu Users

Running Squeak on Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS
Running 32-bit VM's on 64-bit Ubuntu requires installation of the 32-bit libraries.
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libuuid1:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 libsm6:i386
Note that running the 64 bit Squeak does not have this requirement.
The "HT" version of the VM uses a threaded heartbeat timer, which is better than the non-threaded version. This requires making a file, /etc/security/limits.d/squeak.conf with the following contents:
* hard rtprio 2
* soft rtprio 2
Log out and back in for it to take effect.
sudo apt-get install oss-compat
