Why is there an installer anyway? Please provide a .zip or .tar.gz.

Re: Error installing on linux (Ubuntu)

In order to run the installer and the IDE on Ubuntu 64-bit, you need to install the ia32-libs

Ugggghhhh! Why must RIM always do everything opposite of standards? <sad panda>


I don't think anyone at RIM even ran through the install on command line, or if they did, they just don't care much... I had to press enter like a trillion times just to get through the EULA.


But thanks @ayun, that worked.


UPDATE: What was the point of this? I got to the end and was told I still had to run a shell script to edit the environment variables... which is good that you didn't do it, but makes the use of an installer completely pointless.

I just wanted to 2nd mreed.  Emphatically.
