With Ubuntu 12.04 (not 12.24) you can normally use the 32bit ubuntu package since they introduced multiarch.
I do not get what and where should conflict with so many other software, runs just fine here.
Running Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit on my Sony VAIO laptop and haven't experienced any problems. As Cimmo notes, you should be able to try the 32-bit package, as well.
