This could be two different problems:

1. You're really missing the library. Try installing "apt-file", then do
"apt-file update" and "apt-file search libgomp123.so" (replace with the file
name you need) to see which package it's in


2. The software you're trying to run is compiled for 32-bit Linux, and
you're running 64-bit LInux. If you install libraries using "apt-get
install" you get the 64-bit versions, which can't be used by 32-bit compiled
programs. You either need to get a version of your software that's compiled
for 64-bit Linux, get the 32-bit libraries on your system somehow, or
install 32-bit Ubuntu and try with that.
