How I installed Adobe Air and BBViewer on Linux Mint 17.3
03/19/16 10:42 AM

Had trouble following older directions for installation on Linux as older packages were no longer available and I was using my laptop with Win 10 as my only way to view. My TV inputs were all full so I couldn't throw it up on the big screen from there.

Went to

where they say this
I have wrote a script to automate the Adobe Air installation process for all supported Ubuntu and Linux Mint versions. Adobe Inc. has stopped development of Adobe Air for the Linux, so we are here to do something about it, following script will install most recent version for Linux released by Adobe.

and then I typed in the provided script commands in terminal

wget -O

chmod +x;sudo ./

Then just clicked on the downloaded BBViewer-5.1.air
and Air popped up and installed it with no problems whatsoever.

You can uninstall Air with this command in terminal
sudo apt-get autoremove adobeair

Hope this helps someone. Waiting for the Roku and Android apps now.
