Adobe Air (Adobe Integrated Runtime) is an Adobe product which allows us to run Rich Internet Application (RIA) on any operating systems such as Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and even on mobile devices. Unfortunately, Adobe Air is not available on Ubuntu repository :CMIIW. So, months ago, I have written a post on how to install Adobe Air on Ubuntu from Adobe official installer. On that post, we had to install it manually: download required packages, run the installer, and soon. Today, I'd like to share an easy way to install Adobe Air on Ubuntu via Deb Package.

First thing first, please download Adobe Air Deb packages here and download the appropriate package for your computer architecture (32bit or 64bit). Once downloaded, simply run the following command to install it:
  • sudo dpkg -i adobeair_2.6.0.19170_i386.deb
Once installed, you can start install any Adobe Air application by accessing the "Adobe Air Application Installer" from the menu.

I have tested the Deb package for 32bit on my Xubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and everything works well. So, if you need Adobe Air to run some applications, you should give it a try :)

Regards :)
