After my main hard disk corrupted recently, I changed to Linux mint – which is great. But while installing the Android environment I had a weird issue – all the platform-tools were installed, but the executables wouldn’t run with the message:
bash: /home/robert/bin/android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/aapt: No such file or directory

After a bit of head scratching I found this post: http://askubuntu.com/questions/73491/no-such-file-or-directory-for-existing-executable

Turns out the existing Android binaries are 32-bit (64-bit isnt supplied) and the error message is because the executables can load dependent libraries. Fairly simple really – it’s just that the error message is rather mis-leading.

Solution:
apt-get install ia32-libs

Another one (from here) is:
apt-get install --reinstall libc6-i386
