How to install Elance Tracker in latest Ubuntu 14.04 (Linux Mint 17)Dec 4, 2013, 3:08:35 PM
Elance Tracker app uses Adobe Air and as Adobe has stopped Air support for Linux (the latest supported version is 2.6) - it became problematic to run Air apps on Linux.
You can find a lot of manual allover the Web how to solve different issues and install Air on Linux (like linking
libgnome-keyring.so etc.), but with Ubuntu each new version brings less compatibility.
On Ubuntu 13.10 for a long time I was not able to install Adobe Air in any way. Only one manual from tkalin.com helped me to figure it out.
My previous manual using Wine was not correct. Sorry for that, with Wine you can install and run Tracker, but time and screenshots are not being tracked. So it is useless.
- Here is one quick script. Save it as
#!/bin/bash apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libnss3-1d:i386 lib32nss-mdns libxml2:i386 libxslt1.1:i386 libcanberra-gtk-module:i386 gtk2-engines-murrine:i386 cd /tmp apt-get download libgnome-keyring0:i386 dpkg-deb -R libgnome-keyring0_3.8.0-2_i386.deb gnome-keyring cp gnome-keyring/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0 ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 wget http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/lin/download/2.6/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin chmod a+x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin rm ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin rm /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0 rm /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0
- Make it executable
sudo chmod a+x install_adobe_air.sh
- And run
sudo ./install_adobe_air.sh(during running Abode Air wizard will appera, you should go through it)
- Then download Elance Tracker for Linux as usual and install it in normal way
Method proven to work with :
- Ubuntu 13.10, 14.04
- Linux Mint 15, 16, 17
