install tweetdeck on ubuntu 10.04


I usually use twitter and facebook from web only. Today i thought to use some client. I found TweetDeck. I thought it must be awesome. So I installed it.

Its very easy to install on Ubuntu 10.4 thanks to TweekDeck and Ubuntu Team.

TweetDeck – http://www.tweetdeck.com/desktop/

It goes like this

  • Download Adobe AIR from http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/air_linux.html
  • Get the .deb file from above page.
  • Use dpkg -i .deb file and this will automatically install Adobe AIR in your computer.
    ganu@ganu:~$ sudo dpkg -i /tmp/adobeair.deb
    Selecting previously deselected package adobeair.
    (Reading database ... 219838 files and directories currently installed.)
    Unpacking adobeair (from /tmp/adobeair.deb) ...
    Setting up adobeair (2.0.3.13070) ...
    
  • Download TweetDeck AIR from from there website or from direct link at http://www.tweetdeck.com/beta/TweetDeck_0_35.1.air
  • You can also directly download the latest air file from TweetDeck website page. It will download the latest version.
  • Run the air file, double click it and follow the instructions.

    Hi,

    It can be done easier (at least on my 10.04 LTS).

    Just do sudo apt-get install adobeair

    And afterwards go to the Tweetdeck-site, download it and install it directly.

    Greetings.
