Installing Adobe Air 2.6 on Linux Mint 13 ‘Maya’ (64 bit)

Hi all,

here you are a useful “how to” to install Adobe Air on linux mint ‘Maya’ 64 bit:

  1. Download the Adobe Air 2.6 runtime installer for Linux which can be found here.
  2. 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.
  3. make sure libgnome-keyring0:i386 is installed with “sudo apt-get install libgnome-keyring0:i386
  4. 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″
  5. make the AdobeAIRInstaller.bin executable with “sudo chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
  6. run the installer with “sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

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

Thank you Chuck….
