I just installed AIR 1.5.3 successfully, but every time I'm trying to install an AIR application from my firefox window the applications want to re-install AIR and fail. I tried the photoshop.com uploader, the Avatar movie demo, both doing the same thing. The installation appears to start, then a little window comes up saying to install this app you need to instal AIR, I say yes, then it appears to download something then fails with the message "a download error occured, try to download again?"
I'd appreciate any help on this.
Did you run the Adobe 1.5.3 installer as sudo? I suggest that you remove the following folders and try again:
Let me know if this works.
Thanks for your reply.
Yes, I ran the AIR installer as root (sudo). It correctly installed the rpm. I see the files under /opt/Adobe AIR/Versions/1.0.
However after deleting the directories you mentioned I'm still having the same problem. The AIR applications are telling me I need to install AIR.
How do they check if AIR is installed? Do i need to set anything within firefox for them to see that I have AIR?
