Need Adobe Air to run an Application
My daughter has sent me a Jacqui Lawson Advent Calendar as a gift. In order to download and run, it needs Adobe Air and, of course, Adobe have withdrawn the Linux version of Air.
I have downloaded an old version of Air (v2.6, the last to support Linux) to see if that will work but have a problem installing it. The installer comes as a binary with a *.bin suffix and will run on issuing the command:
Unfortunately the installation fails with the message
I looked for the library named and got the following:
/tmp/air.BCChPV/setup: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
So it looks like the necessary library is there but not where the installer expects it.
$ locate libgtk-x11-2.0.so
My OS is Linux Mint 13
I have contacted Jacqui Lawson but the initial response was the usual generic "Have you checked the FAQs" which suggests that my request for help has not been read or at least not properly read.
My daughter gave me one last year and it worked fine but this was before Adobe withdrew Air.
