Adobe Air for Linux is no longer supported, but you can still install the version 2.6 on Ubuntu & Linux Mint with a little tweak.
If you’re running programs that are built on AIR, follow the below steps to install Adobe Air first.
1.) Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal window, I’ll do the job by running a few commands in terminal.
2.) Download Adobe Air 2.6 for Linux via wget command, it’s about 15MB.
3.) Install this package for 64-bit system:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
4.) Now the important part is to create a symbolic link to your gnome keyring:
- For 32-bit, run the below 2 commands one by one:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0 sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0
- For 64-bit, run this:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0 sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0
5.) Now give executable permission to the downloaded .bin package:
chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
6.) Finally run it:
Follow the setup wizard, and done!
(Optional) To free up disk space, run below commands to remove downloaded package and the symbolic link you just created:
rm AdobeAIRInstaller.bin; sudo rm /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0

Got an error from Adobe, it wanted to have a Gnome Keyring.
Found a trick here : http://askubuntu.com/questions/87447/how-can-i-install-adobe-air
I have tried this, The Adobe installer comes up, then a small screen asking for my root password. When I put that in it says Authentication failed then closed the installation window
Installed on Mint 16 Started working
Thanks… it’s works!!
