Installing HipChat on 64-bit Linux.

The instructions for HipChat are pretty straightforward, though you do need to run th commands from root.

# Adobe's instructions forget to mention ia32-libs-gtk
$ apt-get install lib32asound2 lib32gcc1 lib32ncurses5 lib32stdc++6 \
lib32z1 libc6 libc6-i386 ia32-libs-gtk lib32nss-mdns

$ wget
$ dpkg -i getlibs-all.deb

# incorrect in adobe's instructions (corrected)
$ getlibs -p gnome-keyring
$ getlibs -p libhal-storage1

Seems like these commands were not needed on Ubuntu 10.04:

$ ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/
$ ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/
$ ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/
$ ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/ # missing from adobe's instructions

chmod 777 AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

The final step is to download the Adobe AIR client here:

$ wget
$ /opt/Adobe\ AIR/Versions/1.0/Adobe\ AIR\ Application\ Installer hipchat.air
