GTK is Gnome.

Hi...

Does this command work...

Code:
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0
Disclaimer: Be careful with commands that are prefaced with "su" or "sudo." They will essentially allow root access to your system. Mistakes could possibly damage or even destroy your OS.

Also, are you running a 32 or 64 bit version of Ubuntu MATE?

Regards...

Thanks 64 bit .
Yes on further search I tried sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0
But then am left with a list over over a dozen missing dependencies!

Feel I am going down a rabbit hole.
Unless there is an easier reliable 1 script install solution, am going to forget about AIR

Hi...

Adobe AIR for Linux is a 32 bit application, a 64 bit version was never released for Linux, at least to my knowledge. This probably explains, at least partly, your issues.

For the missing dependencies, please run this command and post the resulting output....

Code:
sudo apt-get -f install
I did find this page, which should help you get it installed correctly, even though it was originally written for Ubuntu 12.04.

Regards...

If it's an option, you should consider installing WINE and running your Adobe Air apps in that instead. It's better than the Linux runtime.

Almost there, after running the AIR installer another time get several warnings

Quote:
(setup:4441): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine",
followed by this error popup

Quote:
Adobe AIR could not be installed. Install either Gnome Keyring or KDE KWallet before installing Adobe AIR.
But when I try and install Gnome Keyring I get the following error

Quote:
gnome-keyring is already the newest version (3.18.3-0ubuntu2)

So you were able to get it installed and working correctly? If so, please mark this thread as "SOLVED" by clicking on "Thread Tools" directly above your initial post. Thanks!
