Switching to Ubuntu Part II – how to install Twhirl

Of course, you have to announce your new blog posts over Twitter. A cool twitter client is not the worst idea – I personally decided to run Twhirl for this purpose because Twhirl is able to run multiple accounts.
As Twhirl is based on the platform Adobe Air, you first have to install this one.

  1. Go to http://get.adobe.com/air/, download it to your /home/ folder.
  2. Open the command line and type chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
  3. Type chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
  4. The Adobe Air installer will open up now in a new window. You will have to confirm the terms and conditions.

Time to install Twhirl:

  1. Go to http://www.twhirl.org/ and click to the install button on the right hand side.
  2. Again, an install routine opens up (inside Adobe Air). Choose your options for the Twhirl installation here.
  3. A twhirl instance now should pop up. Enter your Twitter name(s) and your password here and you are done.
