should list 'ii adobeair 6: i886 Adobe AIR 7'. You can now click the installer on the main download page and it should work fine.

You are(in accordance to my comment which came before iwrng's answer) using commands for the wrong Linux distro. Ubuntu, like Debian uses apt (Advanced Package Tool) to install and manage applications. Please use sudo apt-get update, followed by sudo apt-get install flex, and use sudo apt-get install packagename for all other installation steps in your guide.

Recently, browsing InfoQ I stumbled upon a very visual and interesting presentation by Christophe Coenraets “ Rich Internet Applications with Flex and AIR “.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i886-linux-gnu/libgnome- /usr/lib/libgnome-
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i886-linux-gnu/libgnome- /usr/lib/libgnome-

Here you can find hints and tips if you are having issues getting the AIR based SDK installer to work, as well as details of how to use the command-line to install the SDK using Ant without requiring AIR.

Install Flex
Once you’ve configured Eclipse, install the Flex plugin for Linux – http:///technologies/flex/flexbuilder_linux/
Download the bin file and from the command line, chmod+x to make it executable. Run it from the command line by cd’ing to the directory where it’s downloaded and run it by prefacing the downloaded bin file with./. Example: sudo./flexbuilder_linux_install_a9_

Note that I was unable to get this working with Eclipse . If you have a version of Eclipse installed from the Ubuntu repositories I highly recommend you completely remove it and use the packages provided by .

The project repository is now hosted at github: https:///westes/flex.
