    Thanks, but it's not clear to me how your fix changes things. On my machine,
    it's the difference between taking the second word of "Description: Debian
    GNU/Linux 6.0.5 (squeeze)" and the third word of "Distributor ID: Debian".

    Could you copy the output of 'lsb_release -d' and 'lsb_release -i' from your
    machine?

    Also, I've added 64bit debs for Debian and Ubuntu under
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/passwordsafe/files/Linux-
    BETA/0.8.0/,
    although the Ubuntu deb is for an relatively old dist (don't
    have the number handy).

    Cheers,

    So I chose to use -i to capture the platform in one word and since Linux Mint
    is two words, the '-d' failed on compile as there was no control file for just
    "Linux". I checked the man page and used '-i' as the Distributor ID field of
    Debian, Ubuntu and LinuxMint appeared as one word on each of the releases. I
    just copied the Ubuntu control file to a duplicate file and named it with
    'linuxmint' in place of 'ubuntu'.

    brian@revo ~ $ lsb_release -d
    Description:    Linux Mint 13 Maya
    
    brian@revo ~ $ lsb_release -i
    Distributor ID: LinuxMint
    

    Thanks Rony.
