Tweetdeck on Linux

Tweetdeck is a Twitter client developed with Adobe Air. Air isn’t in the standard repositories for Fedora 9 or Ubuntu 8.10. I found instructions for installing it. These worked fine in Ubuntu (with newer paths). But Fedora 9 didn’t work:

  • Get the AIR installer
  • Become root or sudo the following
  • chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
  • ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

The installer complained that either gnome-keyring or kwallet must be installed. I already have gnome-keyring installed. gnome-keyring-daemon is running.
Tried instructions from http://blogs.adobe.com/ashutosh/2008/09/adobe_air_for_linux_beta_is_ou_1.html
default keyring wasn’t already there. created it.
killed and restarted daemon and export env vars.
Still no joy.
