Install Apache Flex 4.10 Ubuntu 13.04 64 bits

So finally! The guys at Apache Flex has made available an installer for the latest release of the 4.10 Apache Flex SDK version for Linux/Ubuntu. It take some time, but finally an installer for our beloved platform. So let's install it:

First you must have Adobe Air 2.6 installed, here is a great tutorial. Next download the deb file containing the installer here.

Next double click and ... what an error ?

If you have Adobe Air installed you need to check the version to do this just run this command:

dpkg -l adobeair

and you should get something like this:

So, i if my math is still good i suppose that version 1: is greater than 1:, so i just ignore this and use this command to install the package:

sudo dpkg -i --force-depends apache-flex-sdk-installer-2.6.0-bin.deb 

and voilà:

From there just use the handy wizzard, and after some time you will get this.

Congratulations. I hope this short tutorial helps, if you need any extra help just comment and i will be happy to help you.

  2. There is an .deb installer. I have it on my machine if you want to put it in your blog.

  3. Thank you very much for this helpful guide. I have now managed to install apache flex on Ubuntu 14.04. If anyone is looking for the deb installer (instead of building one from source) I found it here: http://www.filewatcher.com/m/apache-flex-sdk-installer-2.6.0-bin.deb.2158968-0.html
