How to install Adobe AIR on Ubuntu 64-bit

I recently found myself in a position where I had to run an application requiring Adobe AIR. I'm running a 64-bit install of Ubuntu, and Adobe's AIR is only for 32-bit computers. Installing Adobe AIR on Ubuntu 64-bit is very easy if you follow this short step-by-step tutorial on how to install Adobe AIR on Ubuntu 64-bit.

First, open up a terminal window. Then type:

cd /tmp
sudo apt-get install -y ia32-libs lib32nss-mdns lib32asound2 lib32gcc1 lib32ncurses5 lib32stdc++6 lib32z1 libc6 libc6-i386 lib32nss-mdns libcanberra-gtk-module
wget http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/lin/download/latest/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

There you have it, installing adobe AIR on ubuntu 64-bit, in 5 lines of simple copy-and-paste code. :-)
