Unfortunately, Ubuntu Launchpad PPAs only support x86 and x86_64. They don't allow any other architectures. There's nothing we can do about that.

It isn't clear to me if you're running a 32-bit or 64-bit kernel. For 32-bit, you'll have to use our Debian repo. Instructions are on our Debian/Ubuntu? download page.

For 64-bit, we don't have any prebuilt libjbigi-jni, so that won't work either. You can use the regular installer (although that might fail too), or build from source. Even after building from source, it won't have the jbigi. It will run without it, but slowly. You can also build the jbigi from source, see

We could perhaps make it clear that the PPA is only for x86 and x86_64. Leaving this ticket open for updating the web page.

Ticket is from over a year ago, have we heard anything further from manjago regarding whether this issue still exists?

Checking on the product page:,, points at a ARM Cortex-A7 CPU which is 32-Bit,

There is also a StackExchange? question here:

The 1 comment there recommends using Debian over Ubuntu for this very reason, the armbian page for the Orange Pi PC+ shows that Stretch is suported so that would be the thing to do.

Instructions on the Debian page should be updated with ARM-related instructions.

I recently built libjbigi for FreeBSD 12 on a RPi3. It is relatively easy to build and does improve performance by 100-200x.

tuna said at ccc we could do a build in qemu. I know nothing about qemu but I could try. Either that or buy a orange pi.

FreeBSD's poudriere system uses QEMU for cross-compiling.

I have built jbigi & the Tanuki Wrapper on an RPi3 running FreeBSD 12. I can provide builds for any 64-bit Linux distribution if you share the ISO/IMG file for the OS on which these should be built. (also posted in #1840)
