This is a good find, and may with Adobe Air, you're in good company (over 500 million strong, an all around excellent tool for graphics for games, 2D/3D acceleration that gives a great boost in graphics. Used by many brands. 

 

One can also play high quality HD video with industry standard codecs such as H.264, AAC & MP3. Please read the article closely to be sure & select the proper version (32 or 64 bit version) for your OS.

As can be seen, this trick really works! :thumbup2:

However, I used the commands below the 32/64 bit ones (the below are two separate lines of code & my systems are 64 bit), it installs just like on Windows, initially downloading through the Terminal, the real look & feel upon install. Be sure to click Finish in the Adobe Air installer box so that the Terminal operation will complete. :)

 

 

 

>>>Available for Ubuntu 16.04/14.04/12.04/Linux Mint 18/17/13
To install AdobeAir in Ubuntu/Linux Mint open Terminal (Press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy the following commands in the terminal:
Terminal Commands:
chmod +x adobe-air.sh;sudo ./adobe-air.sh

Who says that Linux users can't access the good software choices? :)

What practices were those? :)

 

I'm a near 100% Linux Mint user for my own personal use, mainly run Windows to assist others, to have some upgrade cash, and for bragging rights on forums (hardware related). By instinct, most knows what a Speccy link is, few will know what all of that 'inxi -Fx' code means (unless a Linux user). Try posting that on Overclock.net & see what type of greeting/response one receives. Saving up for yet another GTX 10 series GPU (on promo may be a 2nd 1070) & 4K UHD monitor. What am I supposed to do, tell those who calls on me for Windows repairs to stuff it, just because my main gig is Linux? :P

 

Many PC shops also uses Linux tools to repair Linux installs, and Windows end users runs Linux software to some extent (think a bootable MiniTool Partition Wizard CD or Parted Magic for secure erasing SSD's). Both, as well as many other tools, are Linux based & the Linux user gets just as much out of Parted Magic as a Windows one, 100% secure erased in under a minute w/no hope of recovery (as long as the 'Enhanced Secure Erase isn't chosen, which doesn't clear all, though takes as long) & 100% rejuvenated Flash cells. 

 

Remember, it was Adobe who abandoned Linux users years back as though a thief in the night after getting updates for over two years, as I'm sure you're well aware of, so they're the ones on the 'begging' side as their support is waning in favor of HTML5. :)

 

And I haven't forgotten what Adobe did, nor forgave them, it's just that for now, we work with what we can get our hands on until something better comes along. Too bad that that the original Opera team & Mozilla were the HTML5 pioneers, and now Adobe & Microsoft, in usual fashion, are coming in & taking the credit for work that they didn't begin. :(

 

Still, this shouldn't be a distraction from the Topic, Adobe Air can now by enjoyed by Linux users, just as much as every other OS brand, to include smartphone owners, uses. :)
