Is somebody interest in making a PKGBUILD for Prezi Desktop?
It is based on Adobe AIR and thus should be running on Arch. The Wiki describes the steps to install an Adobe AIR package as follows:
Installing an AIR Application
Download the application, and unzip it to /opt/airapps/<appname>. To run it you can use the command
$ /opt/adobe-air-sdk/bin/adl -nodebug /opt/airapps/<Application name>/META-INF/AIR/application.xml /opt/airapps/<Application name>/
Making it executable
You can also make an executable by creating a file in /usr/bin:
/opt/adobe-air-sdk/bin/adl -nodebug /opt/airapps/wimp/META-INF/AIR/application.xml /opt/airapps/wimp/
The app might need parameters (voddler) so then the script can look like:
/opt/adobe-air-sdk/bin/adl -nodebug /opt/airapps/wimp/META-INF/AIR/application.xml /opt/airapps/wimp/ -- $1 $2 $3 $4
Then chmod the file so that it can execute:
$ chmod +x filename
Now you have installed an application in AIR. Yes it is this silly
Removing the application
Delete the application folder in /opt/airapps. Also delete the executable if you created one.
I would very much appreciate it.

Unfortunately with version 4.x Prezi Desktop is no longer supported on Linux since Adobe Air is no longer supported for Linux by Adobe. Thus, I could not manage to get the version 4.x working which is provided as an .exe file.
Nonetheless I created a PKGBUILD for the latest 3.091 version available for Adobe Air.
So far it is working great but I appreciate any feedback on the PKGBUILD.

I cheered to soon. Yet it is not possible to insert local images. Prezi stops at "Downloading...". I guess it cannot locate the file in the file system.
In contrast, downloading files from the Internet works well.
Might this be related to Adobe AIR?
Small approaches. I made Prezi Desktop 4 compatible. What I did is described here.
Both packages are now available on AUR:
Feel free to test them. I am pretty sure not everything is working.
