This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


For 64bit

In terminal (What is a terminal and how do I open and use it?) copy and paste each command then hit enter one command at a time. sudo commands will ask for a password, type your password and hit enter(there will be no visual indication of typing a password)- if you password does not work: How do I reset a lost administrative password?

  1. wget
  2. sudo chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

  3. sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

  4. sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
  5. sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

With adobe air u need to use Adobe Air version 2.6 (only one I were able to run on 64 bit 12.04) since adobe stuck support for Linux. Never version most likely wont work at all.

Second issue with adobe air is that it mostly search for needed libraries on wrong place, however this post here!, helped me to instal Adobe Air.
