The big idea is, unzip your adobe air sdk somewhere. Then download some .air file.
then unzip the .air file somewhere. Then on console

$PATH_TO_YOU_AIR_SDK/bin/adl -nodebug $PATH_OF_DOT_UNZIPPED_AIR_FILE/META-INF/AIR/application.xml $PATH_OF_DOT_UNZIPPED_AIR_FILE

So what twirl works,
doomi a to-do list, works with compiz on.

What happens…………………..

Here’s what I have been doing within last week:

– Was trying skype, after a very long time. Suprisingly works on my 64 bit hardy. But they give us the version 2.0, where as there is testing version of skype 4.0 for windows.
Which is a disgraced!!!!!

– Was trying to install adobe air. One it doesn’t work on 64 bit. And it didn’t even allow installation on 64 bit linux environment, even we have a 32 bit compatibility environment installed. And was trying on wine. Only to find out that twirl won’t work.

– On the positive side, there is an interesting plugin for facebook chat.

So far it is working. Wonder how it works…….
