Linux: 32-bit update takes precedence over older 64-bit version

The most recent Linux update is 32-bit, which isn't strictly compatible with most modern Linux  configurations without installing a lot of i386 packages.

I foolishly left automatic updates switched on, so the 32-bit version was installed and now seems to be given precendence by the client when I try to run it. It fails, most likely for reasons of the aforementioned dependency hell.

While I can still run the 64-bit version from the command line or work out what I need to get the 32-bit version working, it would be really great if we could have a 64-bit Linux update if you get the time.

Thanks very much!

Sorry to keep poking, but I'm still having this issue, plus I could do with some of the bugfixes that were released earlier this month for Steam users (, if you have the time. Janitor's disappearance and the resultant lack of hypnocoin is really slowing down my late game, which is a bit offputting.

Would it help if I grabbed any particualr logs for you?

Thank you!


Hi there, we finally got the Linux versions updated! I'm not sure about precedence, but the bugs fixed for Steam users have now been fixed here :)

It works perfectly, thank you! I also can't comment on the client update order issue, because the entire client has taken offence to my new 4G modem, but a manual download of the latest 64-bit version picked up my savegames and generally works as it should.

I got Janitor back with console command: hackiconpattern:2


Good to hear!!
