Installing Adobe AIR on Linux

转载 2012年03月31日 14:04:11

I recently released an AIR application called ‘Snippet Manager‘ which was build using Flex (in a basic text editor, not Flex Builder). Today I decided to see if it would work on Linux. I’m happy to report snippet manager works just as well as it does in Windows.

Here are the steps I used to install Adobe AIR on Linux (Ubuntu).

Note: On my system, I used VM Player (the Free Virtual Machine Player) inside Windows XP. I then downloaded a Linux Ubuntu 8.10 image (I got mine from vmplanet.net).

Step 1
Download the latest Adobe AIR Installer for Linux
. At the time of writing, the Adobe AIR for Linux is in Beta.

Download Adobe AIR Linux Installer

Download Adobe AIR Linux Installer

Download the Linux install file from: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/air_linux.html

If your browser is set to download files to your desktop (FireFox default on Ubuntu), you should see something like this:

Air Installer file on Linux Desktop

Step 2
The next thing to do is find out your installer files location path. You can do this by right clicking on the file and selecting ‘Properties’. You should see something like this:

AIR Installation File Location

AIR Installation File Location

On my system, the file location is/home/vmplanet/Desktop/adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin – the chances are the ‘vmplanet’ part of the path will be your own username.

Step 3 and 4
Now we need to change the file permissions (this could probably be done in the properties window, but we will do it in a terminal just to be sure!)

Open a terminal window (select terminal from the applications list). Type in the following command to change to the same directory as the installation file:

cd /home/vmplanet/Desktop

(you will probably need to change the path a little to match your own)

Now to change the file permissions, type:

chmod 777 adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin

The final step will execute the installer file (installs Adovbe AIR). In your terminal window, type:

./adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin

then press enter. The . (dot) at the front of your path is required!

You should now have Adobe AIR installed and ready on your Linux box.
