Are you really sure this is a GPL-licensed free software ?

build terminates with ERROR: Missing package() function in /..../aur-adobe-air/./PKGBUILD
due to obsolte function build() in PKBUILD, to get it working it should be changed to package()

Isn't the latrst version for Linux 2.6?

@ peke:

That IS quite strange. To be honest, I'm a bit in over my head here.
For the moment, I installed the package and tried it on Cinnamon as well as GNOME and I'd say that that isn't the issue, as I get a blank UI in both cases, on top of that the only real error it throws are the TypeError's.

That said, I have no clue what COULD be causing the problems. I think your best chances are to run the command without the -nodebug flag, see what information you can get off that and take them to the adobe-air-sdk or devolo-dlan-cockpit packages, maybe they can help you better over there.

Either way, you wouldn't be able to get it working with this script, since it pretty much calls the exact same command.


Sorry, it wasn't my intention to imply that, I just figured I'd share my "fix" to circumvent the binaries since it's served me pretty well.

@felixonmars, I still wonder how it got disowned since I didn't do it. Thanks!

I take this package since it had been orphaned for weeks (and I use it), and have disowned it now if you are still interested.

How the fuck did felixonmars take this package from me without me knowing?

Hi Toost_Inc, welcome to the loop.

thanks for your comment. When I ran your suggested commands, the application open UI but it doesn't works while terminal retrieve the next error message:

(adl:1832): Gtk-WARNING **: Imposible encontrar el motor de temas en la ruta al _modulo: «adwaita»,
I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/etc/opt/Adobe/certificates/AIR/crypt//config.xml"
Unable to parse Document: /etc/opt/Adobe/certificates/AIR/crypt//config.xml.
Unknown desktop manager, only Gnome and KDE are supported
.Error: EncryptedLocalStore database access error
TypeError: Error #1009
TypeError: Error #1009

regarding "/etc/opt/Adobe/certificates/AIR/crypt//config.xml" I've not this path on my system.

in the other hand it says "only Gnome and KDE supported" and I'm running cinnamon. Is this the problem? May be it is also related with my 64 bytes system?

So it has nothing to do with this package, as I said in the previous comment. Packages like devolo-dlan-cockpit should just depend on adobe-air-sdk only, and use the adl command line you gave in their launcher scripts.

Toost_Inc commented on 2013-02-17 04:57

hey peke, I had the same problem with a game I installed but managed to fix it.

The problem lies in that devolo runs through a custom binary file instead of it being a regular .air script, which this launcher script is meant for. What you'll want to do instead of that is run adl manually. in case of devolo cockpit it would be:

/opt/adobe-air-sdk/bin/adl -nodebug /opt/devolo/dlancockpit/share/META-INF/AIR/application.xml /opt/devolo/dlancockpit/share/

(provided you kept the default install paths for both packages)
or alternatively compress the entire /opt/devolo/share folder to a .zip and renaming it to a .air then running adobe-air on it (you'll snatch a couple of unneeded files in your .air but that won't hurt).
