I am a heavy user of Tweetdeck and few other apps that are built on AIR. It appears that AIR has discontinued support for Linux. Even the older versions in the Adobe AIR Archives seem to support only 32 bit Linux distros and I am on 64 bit Oneiric currently. Is there even a slight possibility that I could run AIR in these conditions? If so, can you please tell me where can I get a detailed step by step installation for this?
I need Air for about three programs - YNAB, LongTailPro, Xtend:
Maybe you'll get an error after the last command?

Alternately, you can install a prebuilt .deb
Make sure you have 32 bit libs it'll need:
I downloaded the AMD64 one (adobeair_188.8.131.5270_amd64.deb) and installed on my computer (am64 with Precise Pangolin 12.04)
Then I installed the application that needed Adobe Air in the first place and it worked.
Update for Ubuntu 13:10+,
Trying this technique, i get "Package ia32-libs-gtk is not installed"
I looked up the package and tried installing those dependencies and other related packages I can think of directly:
But that didn't work for either the deb or original binary.
Step 1: Get some Air Next download the Adobe Air .bin file (direct link here).
Step 2: Installation
Open a terminal (applications > Accessories > Terminal) and navigate to your Downloads folder (or the folder in which you saved the .bin file).
We need to let the .bin file have permissions to install so enter the following command carefully: -
Now lets install it:
Installation should zip though and, if everything goes okay, a new menu entry will appear in ‘Applications > Accessories’ titled ‘Adobe Air Application Installer’.
