How to install Adobe Air on 64bit Ubuntu 14.04LTS

In ubuntu 13.10 the ia32-libs package has been removed, and because of that installing any 32 bit app on 64 bit is not as simple as it was before. Below I will show you how I have handled this problem and how to install the adobe air runtime enviroment.

Installing Adobe Air

First of all we need to add old repos entry to our sources:

cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
sudo echo "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse" >ia32-libs-raring.list

next, refresh package database:

sudo apt-get update

and install our missing ia32-libs package

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

To avoid any unexpected situation or package system crash, it’s best if we remove those entries after instalation:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ia32-libs-raring.list
sudo apt-get update

Adobe Air needs gnome-keyring to work, and it should already be installed in your system. But air tries to look for its library in wrong places, so we need to correct this, making two symlinks:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0/usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0/usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0
libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0

Now we can install Adobe Air. First we need to download the latest linux release (btw. air for linux is no longer supported):

wget http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/lin/download/latest/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

Next, we add the execute privilege to the downloaded file and run the installator program:

chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

Enjoy! 😉
