Uninstalling Adobe AIR Applications on Ubuntu Lucid

Today, I installed the “adobeair” package to have the Adobe AIR runtime on my Ubuntu Lucid to be able to install Adobe Air Apps, and installed the Tweetdeck application afterwards, the problem is that I didn’t like the application as it didn’t show Arabic letters!

Accordingly, I wanted to remove it, but didn’t know how to, so I googled around and found that Adobe AIR applications are integrated in the apt applications and can be easily removed via Synaptic, apt-get, aptitude …etc, I just typed “sudo apt-get remove twe” and pressed tab and it auto-completed the name for me:

“sudo apt-get remove tweetdeckfast.fff259dc0ce2657847bbb4aff0e62062efc56543.1”

The application name is pretty weird, but it did the job exactly as I wanted it, amazing, huh?

    to be fair, I discovered that the problem isn’t related to TweetDeck and is more of an Adobe AIR bug, I reported it and hope to get fixed soon…

    Update: Adobe Air support team contacted me, they were able to reproduce the problem and filed a bug report, waiting for the fix!
