Adobe Air 2.6 Installation Steps on Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit)

Download http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/lin/download/2.6/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

Make the .bin file executable

$ chmod a+x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

Run the .bin file by executing following

$ ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

If you get a permission error and/or you're dealing with an installer that applies system-wide changes you might have to launch your application with root privileges

$ sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

If you get error like /tmp/air.oinYTZ/setup: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory, then running following commands

Install i386 libraries, that are required for successful installation and running of Adobe Air and air applications

$ sudo apt-get install libxt6:i386 libnspr4-0d:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libnss3-1d:i386 lib32nss-mdns libxml2:i386 libxslt1.1:i386 libcanberra-gtk-module:i386 gtk2-engines-murrine:i386

Install libgnome-keyring0:i386 package.

$ sudo apt-get install libgnome-keyring0:i386

Create symlinks to gnome-keyring so Adobe Air could see it.

$ 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.0.2.0

Now run the bin file again and it should work

$ sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
