Adobe Air on Ubuntu Linux without Wine

I've tried installing Adobe Air on my Ubuntu Linux with the help of Wine. It is really simple, just follow WineHQ "orders". The reason I first got into the process of having Air installed is that I find Twhirl (just with identi.ca support, as well as friendfeed) a useful tool on microblogging.

Yet through Wine's path, Adobe Application Installer.exe, located here

~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Common Files/Adobe AIR/Versions/1.0 ,

won't do a good job on installing twhirl.air .

There is a fatal artifact issue in running twhirl this way, so I needed another way around.

Unfortunately, Air is not ready for Linux (on Alpha currently) and you'll get this message if you browse to their download page.

So try downloading this .bin file and put it somewhere safe :)
Then change privileges on it and run it

chmod +x adobeair_linux_a1_033108.bin
sudo ./adobeair_linux_a1_033108.bin


Adobe Air is now installed.

Now it is a matter of downloading .air files and trying them out. Twhirl works like a charm, at least on my configuration.

PS Should you have feedback, do post it here :)
