Thread: Adobe Air installer problem

  1. #1

    Default Adobe Air installer problem

    Hello friends. I have been trying to install the Adobe Air beta all morning but can't seem to get it right. I have followed the instructions on Adobe Labs - Adobe AIR for Linux but after I have made the bin file executable I double click it and I get an error message.

    The Error message can be seen on the screen shot:


    Can somebody help me out? Am I doing something wrong?
    All help is much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I would try doing it from the command-line (note: when Gnome is running).

    I had a similar issue when I tried to install air from the desktop, but worked like a charm from a console.

    The .bin is misleading, it triggers a package installer instead of executing the package itself when launched from the desktop.

    I was able to launch it from the console, and the installer started. I would have preferred that it didn't require root privileges, but even after I authenticated, it threw up an error about not finding kwallet or gnome-keyring. I didn't pursue it beyond that.

    Cheers,

    You're not using 64-bit by any chance? I had that too at first, and it was solved by installing the 32-bit versions of the kde-libs (or the equivalent if you're using gnome I assume).

    Unfortunately I have nothing more to tell. I have tried from the GUI, from console as root and not as root, but I still get the same error message...

    have you tried this, as a simple user (yourself, not root):

    - open a console/konsole
    - make the file executable, to do that type the following and then press Enter

    Code:
    chmod +x /home/spyros/Desktop/adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin
    - then, execute the file, that is type in and then press Enter

    Code:
    /home/spyros/Desktop/adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin
    does that work for you?

    You need to download the .air file then click on it. The Auto install doesn't work on Linux.
