What distribution/version are you running on?
Could you please specify the steps that you performed for installing the YNAB application and AIR runtime?
If you could also attach screenshot of the dialog that you see during the installation of AIR runtime and/or AIR application, that would also help in analyzing the problem.
Regarding your query for the actions performed during the installation of AIR runtime rpm/deb package:
1. AIR runtime registers .air extension on your system i.e. installs icons/mimetype for .air extension.
2. Sets itself as the default application for .air extension.
2. Updates the system's icon/mimetype cache for changes to be reflected.
AIR runtime package conforms to the debian packaging guidelines and doesn't hides anything from the user in the process of installation of runtime or application.
You can look at the following installation scripts on your system (debian system) after AIR runtime installation:
Hope it answers your query.
Thank you, GauravKhurana.
I checked the scripts you listed, looked at the installation locations
for both AIR and the YNAB application which was installed under it, and
Because I was curious I used aptitude to remove both YNAB and AIR. They
were removed in their entirety (with useful exceptions of user settings,
data, and license key).
When I re-installed AIR again gdebi gave me the terminal window when I
asked for it this time. I'm not sure what could have been wrong the
during the first installation. I still have to say that not seeing any
output from the script in the terminal is an unusual experience for me,
but I'm happy enough to know how the installation works now.
I appreciate your attention to this matter.
