Flex Builder Plugin for Linux – Alpha

I was pretty excited to see that Adobe has Flex Builder for Linux on their labs page.

I was wondering what I was going to do with all my free time. I run dual boot (dual hard drive) Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux. I have Eclipse set up, but it was at version 3.2, so I had to upgrade it to 3.3, make sure the classpath was set for Java 1.5. The following teminal line was helpful in keeping that manageable:

sudo update-alternatives --config java

Nowdays, with the package installers and all of the helpful people on the net, it does not take a rocket scientist to set up Linux (but it’s always nice to know one, just in case you run into trouble on re-entry!) and have XWindows running. The package installers aren’t 100% there, so there is always a little bit of file tweaking required.
