Installing Adobe Air 2.6 on 64bit Linux Mint / Ubuntu

Ok so since adobe decided to pull support for AIR on linux a while back, it made it a bit difficult for Linux users to use programs that require adobe air. We were forced to only depend on Ver 2.6, hence that was the last Linux compatible release.

Anyway, this is to help people install it on a 64bit version of Linux. Im not exactly sure, but i believe it is pretty much straight forward on 32bit. So i shall show you the steps to get this installed.(The link to adobe air 2.6 for linux is provided below)

1.) We need to download the Adobe Air 2.6 runtime installer for Linux. Which can be found here.

4.) We need to now install a few things, by typing in “sudo apt-get install libhal-storage1 libgnome-keyring0 lib32nss-mdns”  <— lib32nss-mdns was the only file i didn’t have installed. It might be different for you.

5.) Make sure libgnome-keyring0:i386 is installed with “sudo apt-get install libgnome-keyring0:i386

6.) So now we need to link your 32bit libgnome-keyring.so.0 to your /usr/bin with this command. “sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0″

7.) Now we need to make the AdobeAIRInstaller.bin executable with “sudo chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

8.) Then we run the installer with “sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

This should start the installer and install it with no problems.

I hope this helps you out, and of course if you have questions, or you are still missing some libraries, let me know. I will be glad to provide more assistance.
