Haven't seen this kind of error on askubuntu yet.

Did everything as it says here: How can I install Adobe AIR?

After sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin shows this image:

Meanwhile terminal shows a bunch of such messages:

(setup:2579): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine",

Nothing is installed. Those murrine - it showed another code before ( another than setup:2579) - I googled it, installed something, it showed another code - I googled it, installed something, etc. Doesn't seem to affect installation anyhow.

Of course, after one day of googling, after I posted question - the answer has been found.

Here: I've found another set of "before installing adobe air, install these libs" and it worked - unlike tons of those before.

Here it is.

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

And you have to create a symbolic link to your gnome keyring:

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

Here is the one that works for me:

Taken from the web page:

Here is one quick script. Save it as

apt-get install 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
cd /tmp
apt-get download libgnome-keyring0:i386
dpkg-deb -R libgnome-keyring0_3.8.0-2_i386.deb gnome-keyring
cp gnome-keyring/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
chmod a+x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
rm ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
rm /usr/lib/
rm /usr/lib/

Make it executable sudo chmod a+x And run sudo ./ (during running Abode Air wizard will appear, you should go through it).

You rock! Thanks! – Mark D Jan 26 '15 at 22:12
I suggest to add apt-get remove adobeair as first line in your script. I had to do a complete air runtime uninstall (apt-get remove adobeair) before being able to install scratch 2.x: You script was ok but air application install crashed. – lrkwz Nov 10 '15 at 9:37

sudo wget -O

and next

sudo chmod +x;sudo ./

Just installed Adobe Air on Ubunto 14.04 x64 with two clicks:

  1. Download Debian package from
  2. Install it (e.g. just be double-clicking in your file browser from your download folder)

Ignore warnings that the package is of low quality, etc. - Adobe apparently doesn't care much about this linux port, so one needs to take what one can get ...

Works fine (needed it for playing Defender's quest:
