NOTE: Linux version of AdobeAir is no more supported by Adobe.

How to install

You will need at least these packages before installing Adobe Air

Paste below on super user terminal or after using 'sudo'

i386 system:

sudo zypper install libasound2 libgcc44 libncurses5 \
libstdc++ libxml2 mozilla-nss mozilla-nspr \
gtk2-devel gnome-keyring libxml2-devel libxml2-devel libxslt \
rpm rpm-devel

x86-64 system:

sudo zypper install libasound2-32bit libgcc45-32bit libncurses5-32bit \
libxml2-32bit mozilla-nss-32bit mozilla-nspr-32bit gtk2-devel \
libxml2-devel-32bit libxml2-devel libxslt-32bit rpm-32bit rpm-devel \
libstdc++33-32bit libstdc++33-devel-32bit libgnome-keyring0-32bit

Adobe AIR for Linux is available as an RPM here:


Get and Install the rpm with YaST

sudo zypper install adobeair.i386.rpm

OpenSUSE 11.4 - X86-64

You will also need to install:

sudo zypper install libgtk-2_0-0-32bit libgthread-2_0-0-32bit

I've found that this library dependency in the air rpm is missing, just softlink it to get bypass the rpm requirements. You also need KWalletmanager installed, but it is default in KDE.

ln -s /usr/lib64/kde4/ /usr/lib/

OpenSUSE 12.1 - X86-64

I have attempted the 11.4 instructions as well as all the zypper in dependencies. The AdobeAir 2.6 install still fails.

To the above: I created the following links:

sudo ln -s /opt/kde3/lib/ /usr/lib/ \
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ \
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ \
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ \
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

Then made the 2.6 version executable

chmod +x AdobeAIRInstall.bin

and finally ran the installer in super user mode

su -

Note: I installed and ran Pandora One to test the install and all went well.

OpenSUSE 12.3 - X86-64


Installation was straightforward. The last version for Linux is 2.6.



sudo zypper install file:///path/to/adobeair.i386.rpm

Zypper will resolve dependencies.

After this, using the menu item "Adobe AIR Application Installer" in "Utilities > More Programs", I installed Mindomo Desktop 6.871, which seems to run flawlessly with the maps I created on their site.
