After upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04 (from 12.04), I noticed a few issues that can affect Aquaria and wanted to share that information here as a help to others.

Problem #1: Can no longer install 64-bit .deb version of Aquaria (from Humble Bundle)
In 64-bit Ubuntu, I noticed that ia32-libs has been deprecated, meaning that the packages for 32-bit programs must now include as dependencies the specific 32-bit libraries that they need instead of the "ia32-libs" package. Aquaria's 64-bit .deb package (aquaria_1.1.3_amd64.deb) lists ia32-libs as a dependency, and therefore can't be installed.

Solution: Install the 32-bit .deb package instead (aquaria_1.1.3_i386.deb).

Problem #2: On some systems (using open-source Radeon driver?) Aquaria may segfault on launch with the following error: "libGL error: failed to load driver: r600".

Solution:
1. Install the following packages: libstdc++6:i386 and libgcc1:i386
Code:
sudo apt-get install libstdc++6:i386 libgcc1:i386
2. Inside Aquaria's install folder (usually /opt/Aquaria), rename or delete libstdc++.so.6 and libgcc_s.so.1. This will force Aquaria to use the system's version of those libraries instead of the versions shipped with Aquaria.

Problem #3: On some systems, the sound in Aquaria might sound distorted and scratchy.

Solution:
1. Install the libopenal1:i386 package
Code:
sudo apt-get install libopenal1:i386
2. Inside Aquaria's install folder (usually /opt/Aquaria), rename or delete libopenal.so.1. This will force Aquaria to use the system's version of the openal library instead of the version shipped with Aquaria.

I hope this is helpful to someone.

Easier solution: Use these: http://www.bit-blot.com/forum/index.php?topic=4313.0

Doesn't require polluting your 64bit system with 32bit libs and generally works better.
