See question here: ===============> https://superuser.com/questions/218868/tweetdeck-adobe-air-on-ubuntu-10-10

Getting the issue:

sudo apt-get install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 tweetdeckfast.fff259dc0ce2657847bbb4aff0e62062efc56543.1 : PreDepends: adobeair (>= but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

I just followed this and it worked fine http://support.tweetdeck.com/entries/181425-how-to-install-air-tweetdeck-in-linux-ubuntu-variants

  • You mean that you installed via the RPM instead of the deb? – Drew Dec 7 '10 at 20:08
  • No, they used the .bin file (which is an excecutable file that installs the application). It is generally recommended to use the package management system (Ubuntu Software Centre / apt-get / Synaptic / .deb files) instead because it is easier to uninstall/upgrade/reinstall that way. – dv3500ea Dec 7 '10 at 21:15
  • The problem is with the deb, it is doing dependencies on adobeair that Ubuntu package manager isn't correctly made aware of. Installing via the bin gets it installed, of course uninstall will be more difficult now. – Drew Dec 8 '10 at 16:01
