  • Go to the Adobe website and download the Adobe Air installation file (no point in using the wget command unless you know the exact download URL, which tends to change) – the name of the installation file will be something like ‘AdobeAIRInstaller.bin’
  • Save this file into your Home folder (/home/{user})
  • Open Terminal from menu (Application > Accessories > Terminal)
  • Run this command: chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin (substitute file name if necessary)
  • Now run: sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin (substitute file name if necessary)

This will open the installer; follow the on screen instructions. Once installed just double click any downloaded air file (like Tweetdeck) and it will be installed. Enjoy!
