If like me you’ve been using LTS 8.04 for a while in work, at home or for play you may have been doing so for stability reasons.
This morning I got into the office and I was annoyed at some of the things that 8.04 was falling short on so I decided to dist-upgrade.
The main breakage post upgrade was tweetdeck, it kept saying that my ELS was corrupt and I’d need to re-enter my details. However then it would say that “A small number of people have problems with tweetdeck, we’re working on this”. I was stumped.
Easy fix was to remove Adobe Air, remove the .appdata/ folder in my users home directory and do:
# sudo dpkg -r tweetdeckfast.f9107117265db7542c1a806c8db837742ce14c21.1
This will remove tweetdeck from your system.
Now re-install Adobe Air and Tweetdeck and you should be back in business.
