In my home directory I have a directory containg all files of a molecular 
mechanics (MM) package compiled for 32bit and accompanied by all that needed 
necessary to run, except those provided by either libmmotif or lesstif for 
OpenGL graphics, which are provided by the OS. In other words, it is an 
application that does not need any installation.

It runs correctly on my pc with debian etch 32bit.

On my machine with amd64 debian etch (only 64bit libraries) I have now 
installed lesstif1 and copied the above directory with the MM application in 
my home directory. However, when (on jwm window manager) trying to launch the 
application from within its directory:

$./<applicationname> return
bash: error while loading shared libraries: libXm.so.3: cannot open shared 
object: No such file or directory

$apt-cache search libXm.so.3
does not return any package
(the same on 32bit pc, but there the MM application is launched)

Is libXm.so.3 not provided by lesstif1? The application is said to run with 
either Motif or Lesstif.

Probably it is clear what I do not understand. Thanks for helping

(why not compiling for 64bit? It is an old software, it was used at very loose 
interpretations; difficult on debian today, I tried)
