Squeak for Ubuntu Users
Last updated at 2:34 am UTC on 26 January 2020

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
