TweetDeck I really enjoyed until I installed Ubuntu, as Adobe doesn't have a 64-bit version of Adobe AIR (which is necessary to run TweetDeck) so I can't use it anymore. Are there any alternatives that support Facebook?

Note - there is a similar question - but this has been reopened to be specific to facebook support:

What microblogging clients are available?

Have you tried Adobe's method for installing Air on 64, it just uses the 32 bit .bins. Thats how I got destroy Twitter working. I think this is how: kb2.adobe.com/cps/521/cpsid_52132.html –  NRoach44 Jun 7 '11 at 16:36
    
I have actually. Unfortunately, TweakDeck doesn't work 100% with this hacked version of AIR. –  Alan Jun 11 '11 at 4:47

If you do not mind running in a browser then Tweetdeck, Hootsuite and Seesmic all run on Chrome(ium) and the last two on Firefox. Personally I run Tweetdeck under Chrome and running these services in a browser is probably the best way forward. Adobe have stopped development of Air for linux, so do not expect much new software in Ubuntu using it.

Hi. I actually tried using that exact method a few weeks ago. Sadly, TweetDeck was extremely buggy when using the 64-bit version of Adobe AIR. –  Alan Jul 23 '11 at 18:12

I would recommend trying ouy Digsby, as soon as a Linux version will be released (later this year, they say). You may signup to be announced when it's available at http://www.digsby.com/signup/maclinux/?os=linux .

Digsby is comming for mac and linux for about 2 years! Quote from here: LOL don't hold your breath. Not like it's hard to convert the source code over to Linux and compile it on Linux but I've been waiting for a good 2 years now probably and still no word. I've given up on Digsby... Use Konversation or Pidgin for Linux. –  kv1dr May 28 '11 at 12:08

-1 Because Hotot does not support Facebook, and it never will. –  jrg Jun 3 '11 at 19:38

@jrg Never will? "We don't have plans to support Facebook at this time... Anyway, patches are welcomed." –  Eliah Kagan Aug 14 '12 at 20:52
