If you use a 64 bit system you have to check if  ia32 is installed.  ia32  package contains runtime libraries for the ia32/i386 architecture, configured for use on an amd64 or ia64  system running a 64-bit kernel.

sudo dpkg –list ia32-libs* | grep ii

ii ia32-libs 20090808ubuntu36 amd64 ia32 shared libraries - transitional package
ist ia32-libs*

If you do not have the Compatibility Pack for the 32-bit install with

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

check sp-sc
