Well. This is quite embarrassing for Linux. Why do u have to set the eXecutable bit and to run the terminal, change the directory and execute the binary instead of simple double-click on it? Linux will never spread to people with behaviour like this.

Hello Shawn,

Does Adobe Air Linux is for 32-bit machine or it can be installed in a 64-bit also?


Yes... sort of :)

AIR does not support 64-bit natively, but it should still run ok if you install the required 32-bit packages. See this Adobe blog entry for more info:

You know I'm not sure. I don't have a 64bit machine to test with, so hopefully someone else in the "know" will have an answer...
