Adobe Technologies released the Linux version of Adobe AIR some weeks ago which brings web applications and widgets to your desktop. Installing new applications on a Linux distribution is always a mystery for newbies so here is a guide that teaches you how to install Adobe AIR on Ubuntu.
- Open the Terminal
- Download the file from here using the wget command:
- The name of the file is AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
- Save the file in the Home folder (Places > Home Folder)
- Run this command:
chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
- Now run this command:
Copy extra Adobe library file (won’t run in 64 bit without this)
sudo cp /usr/lib/libadobecertstore.so /usr/lib32
Install AIR apps via web.
The normal installer will open, install it. From now whenever you download a .air file, just double click it and it will be installed.
