I posted this in another thread (poles & surveys) I guess I shouldn’t have since this isn’t a pole. SORRY.
I downloaded Adobe Air, both the rpm and the .bin versions. First I tried the rpm, it went through the motions of installing but just disappeared. then I tied the .bin, got tot the installer, accepted the license, entered my root password, but it stopped installing with
“an error occurred. Adobe AIR could not be installed. Install either Gnome Keyring or KDE KWallet before installing Adobe AIR”.
I opened Kwallet and tried again, but to no avail. I am running OS11.4 64 bit. What can I do to get this thing working?
I can’t really help ATM. Except to say, I did install it in 11.3 to test it for someone and the install was trouble free. However, it’s not something I even want to try on my current machine, it’s a horrible application.
If I get chance later today, I’ll try it on my sandbox.
I clicked on the rpm file. then I right clicked on it and clicked on “open with” “KPackageKit” also tried the “install/remove software” options.
Then followed the prompts and the bouncing ball just stopped after a bit.
I tried it in a 11.4 sandbox x86
And it installed, sort of.
I’ll have to have another look in some spare time early in the AM.
But it wasn’t pretty and packagekit dragged in load of crud from some random OBS /home: repo. I tried to see what it was doing but it was all blank and I didn’t have time to investigate properly.
Sorry I can’t get to this more quickly. But most of us don’t so much with this package, so it’s a special case, especially it being propriety.

Glad to hear you got it working - I was going to suggest trying to
install it from the command line and see what (if any) errors showed up.
