  1. #1

    Default Install AdobeAir in Opensuse 12.2

    I have just upgrade to Opensuse 12.2 64 bit - KDE and I want to install Adobe Air. I followed this tutorial SDB:AdobeAir installation - openSUSE but this didn't work.


    How can I install AdobeAir?.

    From http://get.adobe.com/air/
    Adobe AIR for Linux is no longer supported. To access older, unsupported
    versions, please read the AIR archive.
    Different operating system?
    So checkout the mentioned AIR archive.

    Please be more specific, what exact command do you use and what is the
    output you get from the command when you execute it.

    I wrote these commands

    1. chmod +x AdobeAIRInstalller.bin

    2. ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin but nothing happens, so I use the same command but whit sudo (sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin) and I get this

    (/tmp/air.qDm7xA/setup:5117): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

    Thanks.

    Do not use sudo here for that (this is not ubuntu, sudo is not
    configured to run gui programs by default), use kdesu since you use kde
    and the full path to the installer

    Code:
    kdesu /path/to/the/file/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
    does that work for you (of course with the correct path)?

    I used kdesu but it couldn't work and I didn't have any result (output).

    Thanks a lot

    I have never installed adobe air myself so I can only give very generic
    help. Just to be sure what you say:
    It did absolutely nothing?
    Which version of adobe air was that what you tried to install?
    From what I have seen 2.6 seems to be the last which was supported for
    linux, maybe it is no longer compatible with newer linux systems. I hope
    someone who actually uses it can give some info (if there is anyone at
    all who uses it).

    You did not say what you need it for, for the few things which are not
    supported on linux I have a virtual machine with Windows available on my
    PC, in my case VirtualBox with Windows 7 in it.
    Maybe it is an option for you to do that also.

    With Suse 11.4, installation of adobeair.i386.rpm (version 2.6,
    md5sum=895c251e3070289c045d633ecb12b5bc) was no problem,
    but with 12.2 is fails now, without giving reasons: if some dependency is missing,
    shouldn't the installer find out about this?

    The installer was made by Adobe, so ask them...
