Installing Adobe AIR and twhirl on Ubuntu 8.10 Interpid

Dropped my TwitterFox for twhirl today. Runs flawlessly on Ubuntu 8.10.

Installation was a breeze, here’s the walkthrough.

1. Download Adobe AIR Beta from http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/air_linux.html

2. Install Adobe AIR

danesh@pandora:~/Desktop$ ls
adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin
danesh@pandora:~/Desktop$ chmod +x adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin
danesh@pandora:~/Desktop$ ./adobeair_linux_b1_091508.bin
danesh@pandora:~/Desktop$

3. Download twhirl from http://www.twhirl.org/project/twhirl

4. Double click the twhirl file to start the installation. The installer will install twhirl to /opt/twhirl/ .

That’s it! you now have twhirl installed.
