Another Android SDK mksdcard issue

I ran into the common mksdcard error when trying to setup Android sdk/studio. The issue is usually because of a 64-bit to 32-bit incongruity. Usually the solution is to apt-get install a series of 64 to 32 bit libraries like lib32z1.

Here’s the issue: my machine is Ubuntu trusty with xfce with an ARM (armv7l) processor. So everything is pretty much 32-bit, and the lib32 etc aren’t going to work.

Also, I have the libraries:

sudo apt-get install libz1 libncurses5 libbz2-1.0 libstdc++6
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting 'zlib1g' instead of 'libz1'
zlib1g is already the newest version.
libncurses5 is already the newest version.
libbz2-1.0 is already the newest version.
libstdc++6 is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

So any ideas on how to trouble shoot mksdcard tools on ARMv7 architecture or do you think that is just impossible?

This might help
