Ubuntu : How to install Tweetdeck on ubuntu 12.04 64bit

 

 

Whilst Adobe provide a 32bit version of their Adobe Air application for Linux, a native x64 version remains a dream. Thankfully, with few installed dependencies, the 32bit version will happily run on a 64bit installation too

Step 1 .
Get Air, Get Dependencies First things first – you will need a copy of Adobe Air for Linux.

Step 2 .
Next you will need to download and install a package called ‘Getlibs’. What is it? ‘Getlibs’ is a clever little tool that helps install 32bit libraries required for an application to run in a x64bit environment. Save the .deb from the THIS LINK and install it by double clicking on it.

Step 3 .
Once installed we’ll need to get the dependencies for Adobe Air. We can do this in one go by opening a terminal and pasting the following: –

root@K:/home/kartook# apt-get install lib32asound2 lib32gcc1 lib32ncurses5 lib32stdc++6 lib32z1 libc6 libc6-i386 lib32nss-mdns

Step 4 .
Now comes the boring part! Once the above have finished installing, you will need to paste each of the commands below into the terminal separately.

      root@K:/home/kartook#
root@K:/home/kartook# getlibs -l libnss3.so.1d
getlibs: command not found
root@K:/home/kartook# getlibs -l libnss3.so.1d
libnss3.so.1d: libnss3-1d

Step. 5

kartook@K:~/Downloads$ chmod 777 AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
kartook@K:~/Downloads$
kartook@K:~/Downloads$
kartook@K:~/Downloads$
kartook@K:~/Downloads$ ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
kartook@K:~/Downloads$
kartook@K:~/Downloads$
kartook@K:~/Downloads$

Step 6 .

Follow that up with a few more simple commands to sure up a few last features: –

root@K:/home/kartook#cp /usr/lib/libadobecertstore.so /usr/lib32
root@K:/home/kartook#ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0
root@K:/home/kartook#sudo ldconfig

Now we need to download Tweetdeck  old version

just follow the steps as default . then enjoy the deck

Boooommmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Change the line

    “getlibs -l libgnome-keyring.so.0.1.1”

    into

    “getlibs -l libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0”

    Newer version is now available! 😉
