Seesmic Desktop on Ubuntu


I have been using Seesmic (#seesmic @seesmic) on my Android phone (HTC Desire) for a while now and must say I like it a lot. Just works nice and looks good. Plus support for Facebook is coming soon and I like the 'all-in-one' type of approach.

I had a look at the great Seesmic web app. and it looks great, works anywhere you have a web browser. Also noted they have a desktop client too, which runs using Adobe Air. Adobe Air is avaible to install from the repos in ubuntu so I gave it a go.

First:

sudo apt-get install adobeair


Once installed, this added Adobe Air Application Installer to the Applications > Accessories menu.

Download the air file from the seesmic website

Open that from the menu and it prompts you to browse for an air file to install, simply follow on-screen instructions to install the app. You will be prompted for your admin password.

Once installation is complete follow the simple set up wizard to add Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Great app., check it out.
