Debugging Adobe AIR applications on 64-bit Linux

Today I tried picking up on a project I started a while back in Adobe AIR. I quickly ran into an issue when trying to run it with ADL (the Adobe Debug Launcher). It didn’t matter what I tried, whenever I would run ADL, I would get an error saying “No such file exists”.

After a lot of searching, I finally realized this was because ADL is a 32 bit file, and I’m running 64 bit Linux. After that, I quickly found a helpful article, executed the following command to install 32 bit libraries, and everything worked great.

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
NOTE: I’m using Ubuntu. If you’re using a different distro, you’ll need to find the appropriate package.
