Stil can't understand why FD don't use Mono to build so it can run on all environements... Will it be any near future that FD will support for linux ? Once there is FD for linux i will kick my windows OS completely...

Hi,
There are trillions of posts explaining the WHY-s and the possible future experiments...

Search a little in the forum and you will find your answer.

Sorry to say, I couldn't get the Java server to run (the one that it needs), tried installing different Java alternatives, but that didn't help... I think it's missing some dpendency, but I cannot understand which package / packages are missing... I'm on Ubuntu Lucid, tried open jdk and sun jdk.

I've started a similar project, but slightly more design-oriented. Same technical goals, but no absolute need to do everything in AS3.
So far it's pretty much just AS3 though, and works fine on Mac. Should work fine on Lunix but am lacking somebody who wants to handle the Lunix port.

Wow, just found this:

Flash CS5 working on Linux with wine

Now Flashdevelop is the last missing piece before completely switching to linux ;).

Hi guys,

I have recorded a video tutorial about compiling ActionScript 3.0 on Linux. Please watch it and let me know what do you guys think: ActionScript 3 on Linux

Thanks!

Probably some will find use for this info:
I've been using this: http://code.google.com/p/fb4linux/ for almost half a year now.
I'm facing fairly regular crashes and some errors related to Eclipse itself / SWT in particular / general slowness / insane memory consumption so typical for Eclipse and other quirks attributed to it :) But, it works. And regardless of all the bad things, it's still the best option [for me] I could find so far. (Other then that I'm teaching myself to use Emacs :))

Idea - you have to buy (if you want the AS3 plugin), it's Java, again, and it's either you like it very much, or you hate it, it's not your average IDE...
FDT - you'll have to tweak it, but it may, in general, work on Linux (didn't try, but saw it working).

This is not really a double post, because it's about a bit different editor.
As I'm gradually migrating to emacs, here're some things may be useful to anyone who would want to set up emacs for *some* AS3 coding. It's not really that good, but who knows, maybe you'll like it. As a bonus you'll get everything emacs can do, which is quite a lot :)
So, some links:
Some useful links (I'm using all of these in emacs, so I thought I'd post it as well, since you may find it useful):

Eventually I came up with these two functions which I added to my .emacs, and I'm using them sometimes. Of course this is something quite basic...
Code:
(defun compile-flash ()
  "Compiles the AS file using mxmlc (Flex compiler)"
  (interactive)
  (let ((source (read-file-name "Select file to compile: "
              (if (equal major-mode 'dired-mode)
                  default-directory
                (buffer-file-name))))
   (source-path (read-file-name "Select project root directory: "
              (if (equal major-mode 'dired-mode)
                  default-directory
                (buffer-file-name))))
   (output (read-file-name "How should I call the output file?: "
              (if (equal major-mode 'dired-mode)
                  default-directory
                (buffer-file-name)))))
    (shell-command
     (concatenate 'string
        "~/Programs/flex/sdk/4.5+air/bin/mxmlc "
        source " -o " output " -sp " source-path
        " -static-link-runtime-shared-libraries=true"))))

(defun debug-flash ()
  "Starts fdb (Flex debugger) with the SWF you want to debug"
  (interactive)
  (let ((filename (read-file-name "Select file to debug: "
              (if (equal major-mode 'dired-mode)
                  default-directory
                (buffer-file-name)))))
    (term "/home/wvxvw/Programs/flex/sdk/4.5+air/bin/fdb")
    (process-send-string nil (concatenate 'string "r " (expand-file-name filename) "\n"))))

But I would normally compile using Ant / more complex settings, this is OK for quick testing.
