chmod +x adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin (where adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin is the name/version of Adobe AIR for Linux that you downloaded). Finally, to run the installation, type:
Adobe Air (Adobe Integrated Runtime) is an Adobe product which allows us to run Rich Internet Application (RIA) on any operating systems such as Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and even on mobile devices. Unfortunately, Adobe Air is not available on Ubuntu repository :CMIIW. So, months ago, I have written a post on how to install Adobe Air on Ubuntu from Adobe official installer. On that post, we had to install it manually: download required packages, run the installer, and soon. Today, I'd like to share an easy way to install Adobe Air on Ubuntu via Deb Package.First thing first, please download Adobe Air Deb packages here and download the appropriate package for your computer architecture (32bit or 64bit). Once downloaded, simply run the following command to install it:sudo dpkg -i adobeair_184.108.40.20670_i386.debOnce installed, you can start install any Adobe Air application by accessing the "Adobe Air Application Installer" from the menu.I have tested the Deb package for 32bit on my Xubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and everything works well. So, if you need Adobe Air to run some applications, you should give it a try :)Regards :)
Finally, I got my ubuntu desktop edition cds, I was much more excited to install the latest version of ubuntu linux. But after installing ubuntu on my hp tx1000 laptop I ran into many problems like with wireless, audio, graphics.
Update: Some time back when I had written this tutorial adobe air for linux was not released, it was the alpha version of adobe air linux available at that time. But now you will need to run latest version of adobe air linux to run tweetdeck on your ubuntu. I have updated steps to install ubuntu accordingly in the prodecure given below.
3. Right click on the file adobeair_linux_al_033108.bin and select properties, now click the permissions tab and check the box which says Allow executing file as program.
trying to install tweetdeck on ubuntu 8.04. the adobe air install went perfectly. when I try to install tweetdeck, I get the following error:The application could not be installed because the AIR file is damaged. Try obtaining a new AIR file from the application author.
Basically what you need to do is:Install -air-sdk/ln -s /opt/adobe-air-sdk/runtimes/air/linux/Adobe\ AIR /opt/Adobe\ AIRmkdir -p ~/.appdata/Adobe/AIRecho 2 > ~/.appdata/Adobe/AIR/eulaAccepted
To install Adobe Reader 9.5.5 on Debian Sid, Debian Jessie and Debian Wheezy, download the acroread deb package from the adobe ftp and install it via the command-line, along with the other needed libraries.
To all, if you still think Linux is full of these nasty points AC raised, download a bootable CD of Ubuntu/Kubuntu 7.10 and think again. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised and you never know you might even make some new friends. I'm not ramming home how great it is, it just works for me. You should always be open to something new once in a while, with a bootable live CD if it doesn't work out, what have you lost? 2b1af7f3a8
