How to install Real Studio on 64 bit Linux

Today I needed to install Real Studio on a 64bit Linux in order to verify a bug. Installing Real Studio on Linux is not as easy as it should be. First, please make sure you have the package ia32-libs installed (for Ubuntu and similar linux distributions). You download Real Studio on Real Software website for Linux. Now if you run the .deb file in Linux, you get error about wrong architecture, so you need to go to terminal and run

sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i pathtoinstaller.deb

after the -i simply drop the deb file into terminal, so the path is added for you.
Well, after this I can find Real Studio here in the launch menu and I can enter my license key.

To install Feedback, you need to click Feedback button. Real Studio asks you whether you want to install it, than it asks here for being allowed to download an update. So you download the update and save it. Nothing happens. Launching the file manually gives the same error message as above, we we are back to the terminal with this command:

sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i '/opt/RealSoftware/RealStudio2011r4.1/Extras/Feedback System/Feedback.deb'

Now Feedback runs, even with the Feedback button from Real Studio. But I can't login.

Does someone has an idea on how to install libwebkit or libgtkhtml on Linux in 32 bit versions on a 64 bit linux?

And here some bug cases I run into today: 20214, 20213, 20212 and 20001.
I hope someone from Real Software could look into this and improve a few things. Maybe at least provide instructions so people can get it running.
