Defender’s Quest (Demo) on Ubuntu 12.10 x64

Download the needed files.

cd ~/Downloads
wget http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/lin/download/2.6/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
wget http://www.defendersquest.com/files/defenders_quest_demo_1_0_1_linux/defenders_quest_demo_1_0_1.tar.gz

Install 32-bit libs:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

(Get a cup of tea since it takes a while).

Now install Adobe Air:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0
./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

After Adobe Air installs successfully, just remove the links again:

sudo rm /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0

To install the game, I use the tarball because I don’t like .deb files that much for games (personal preference).

mkdir ~/Games/ ; cd ~/Games/ ; tar xzf ~/Downloads/defenders_quest_demo_1_0_1.tar.gz
cd DefendersQuestDemo/bin
./DefendersQuestDEMO

This will launch the game in a window. You can select fullscreen & other resolutions from the options, but since this doesn’t really change the size of the game itself, you might just as well play in a window.
