Installing eLance Tracker on 64bit Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin

I recently struggled with installing Elance Tracker on my new laptop. Here is what I have done to make it work.

Install i386 libs

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Download and install AdobeAir (latest supported version at the time was 2.6)
wget http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/lin/download/latest/AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
chmod +X AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
If it complaints about missing gnome-keyring:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0 /usr/lib/libgnome-keyring.so.0.2.0
Install Tracker
sudo dpkg -i TrackerSetup.deb
