AS you have mentioned that want to know steps to install Adobe air in your system and that is why I would like to tell you that you should first open terminal and then download Adobe Air executable with below code.

Code:
wget http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/lin/download/latest/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
Now you need to change the permission of the adobe air excitable file. To change the file permission you have to enter below command.

Code:
 sudo chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
Now with the help of below command you have to install Adobe air.

Code:
sudo ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
if you face any problem with adobe air installation then let me know.

I have tried to fix this issue by downloading the adobe air file again and installing it but I get same problem. now please tell me what should I do to solve this problem? Any help will be appreciated.

Re: How to install adobe reader in ubuntu 11.04

I am aware of this problem. To get rid of this missing missing gnome-keyring problem you have to enter below command and then your problem will get solved.
Code:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0
