How to install elance Tracker System on archlinux?

Hi guys, anobody here knows how to install elance Tracking system on archlinux,

Elance only provide rpm and deb packages,

I tried to use rmp2targz and deb2targz, but don't work, I also checked this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XirJietlTfI

and it worked, bit I get an error saying that I need to install adobe air, but I already have installed sad


can anybody please tell how to install this package??

the package can be found at:

https://www.elance.com/php/tracker/main/trackerDownload  (must be logged in on elance),

I uploaded the packages to mediafire if you want to check them out:

deb package
http://www.mediafire.com/?ad9x1h19m8kvomi

rpm
http://www.mediafire.com/?gshoa6cu4odcrt3

I did a PKGBUILD:

pkgname=elance-tracker-system
pkgver=current
pkgrel=2
pkgdesc="Elance tracking system"
arch=('i686')
url="https://elance.com/"
license=('unknown')
depends=('libidn')
makedepends=('rpmextract')
options=('emptydirs')
source=("TrackerSetup.rpm")
md5sums=('356798ce170a942e0fbb3ed5e6243e65')

build() {
  cd "$pkgdir"
  rpmextract.sh ../TrackerSetup.rpm
}

and it works, but when I try to run Tracker, it says:

This application requires a version of Adobe AIR which cannot be found.
Please download the latest version of the runtime from
http://www.adobe.com/go/getair,
or contact the application author for an updated version.

Notice that I already have installed adobe-air and adobe-air-sdk

kind regards.

thanks

Re: How to install elance Tracker System on archlinux?

Please search the forums before posting. This is a relatively common issue. That said, I think you'll be needing rpmextract and makepkg.

Re: How to install elance Tracker System on archlinux?

Could you please post both your PKGBUILD and the error message concerning Adobe Air?

Sure, thanks, I update the post, but here you have:

PKGBUILD

pkgname=elance-tracker-system
pkgver=current
pkgrel=2
pkgdesc="Elance tracking system"
arch=('i686')
url="https://elance.com/"
license=('unknown')
depends=('libidn')

source=("TrackerSetup.rpm")
md5sums=('356798ce170a942e0fbb3ed5e6243e65')

build() {
  cd "$pkgdir"
  rpmextract.sh ../TrackerSetup.rpm
}

the error:

Re: How to install elance Tracker System on archlinux?

Have you tried adding adobe-air dependencies to the PKGBUILD? It's also possible that Arch, in it's all-knowing and confusing ways, has installed Air in a nonstandard location, which might foul things up.

You, sir, obviously have no idea how dependencies work (nor how Arch does, if you think it 'all-knowing').

@pahko - you should take a look at other adobe-air based packages on the AUR. adobe-air doesn't even exist in 'Arch' per se, its an AUR package and may or may not be installed in a 'standard' location (which basically means nothing).

Ok, I admit my ignorance, could you please explain? The all knowing bit was intended to be a joke which apparently no one got.

Hi, @ngoonee there are no more packages on aur for adobe air.. only adobe-air-beta but I got the same error...

maybe I need to find a way to install adobe-air... but I don't know how, it is not supported...

thanks

Difficult to say much on this Tracker System, as it is not available for download. It seems there is a 'adobe-air' package that in fact is wrapper that depends on 'adobe-air-sdk'.. Have you tried to install both?

p.s.: forget about the beta package, as it is outdate.

Re: How to install elance Tracker System on archlinux?

bump

I did this with no luck:

515  cd /home/hydn/Downloads/
  516  dir
  517  cd tracker
  518  ls
  519  ls -l TrackerSetup.deb
  520  ar tv TrackerSetup.deb
  521  ar xv TrackerSetup.deb
  522  ls -l data.tar.gz
  523  ls
  524  tar -xzvf data.tar.gz
  525  ls
  526  cp -r etc/ /
  527  cp -r opt/ /
  528  cp -r usr/ /

I still get:
This application requires a version of Adobe AIR which cannot be found.

http://www.adobe.com/go/getair,
or contact the application author for an updated version


I already installed adobe-air and adobe-air-sdk

Thanks

Re: How to install elance Tracker System on archlinux?

I'm still stuck on this. I know this work on Debian based OS. But I would really like to get it working on Arch.


Any ideas?

Yup, I agree. I opened a support ticked and they said they have escalated to devs. Will keep you posted.

Re: How to install elance Tracker System on archlinux?

Ok received a response with things to try (that I've already tried). So again they've escalated the issue this time to their "Engineering team" to "further test that out and see if Arch (specifically is compatible with tracker)."

This sounds pretty positive so hope we have a solution soon.

The last response goes something like... we don't officially support Arch.

Re: How to install elance Tracker System on archlinux?

Actually it turns out there is no more adobe air for Linux, since 2.6, so we must convince Elance to move to another platform, like Java or something else.
