Flex development on Linux

September 2, 2010 1 comment

Hey guys, I hope there are lot of guys who are relying on linux distro like Ubuntu, centos or fedora to name some. As far as the developers, geeks and machine fanatics are concerned. Aftyer such an addiction it’s quite difficult to work back on Windows system for some specific reasons like previous was the case as flash development is restricted to windows based machines. But now as adobe took a nice decision to move to bit to open source society with their new open source flexsdk the dream to develop flash based application on the linux island come true. Now with a handful of simple plugins our distro will be up and ready to develop application in flash and actionscript.

1. Download the eclipse euorpa with JEE support (v3.2 or higher)
Visit the following link
Look for Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers

or get a torrent:

Move the tar file into /opt dir
# sudo mv eclipse-*.tar /opt

Untar the eclipse compress file
# sudo tar zxvf eclipse-*.tar
# sudo cd eclipse
# ./eclipse &

2. Install the following plugins

In the menu, we choose Help -> Install new software…

Click on the “Add…” button, and type the following:

Name: Eclipse IMP

Name: AXDT

Choose (at least) the following packages:
Axdt AS3 Feature
Flex3SDK Feature

Then click on the “Next >” button, accept the licence and proceed to install the AXDT + Flex SDK framework.

Once installed, restart Eclipse

Go to the menu: Window -> Open perspective -> Other… -> AXDT

That’s all what you need to get started with Flas application development.
