​On Linux Mint 17.3, I install newer versions of ​
​LO via a ppa, but there I find no information regarding whether the
versions to be installed are 32-bit or 64-bit. If I check my current
version in LO, I see the following :

Build ID: 1:5.1.1~rc2-0ubuntu1~trusty0
CPU-trådar: 4; Version av operativsystem: Linux 4.2; UI-rendering:
Språkinställning: sv-SE (sv_SE.UTF-8)

but no information on whether the version I have installed is, in fact,
32-bit or 64-bit. Is there anyway to obtain this information ?...
