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

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

  2. 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.
