"Linux Flash developers have been largely neglected by the bigger Flash/Flex IDEs like Flex and Flash Builder, Flash Develop and Flash CS4/5. The technology behind some of these IDEs is cross platform though: Eclipse is available on all major operating systems, and the Flex compiler is written in Java. Still, while Adobe releases Flash Builder 4 for Windows, Flex Builder 3 for Linux is still languishing in an alpha state.

"FDT 3.5 is an add-on for Eclipse that offers much of the functionality present in Flash Builder, and the good news is that it works (to an extent) in Linux. Some features don't work as you'd expect, but for those that are adventurous, the following steps show you how to get Eclipse and FDT working in Ubuntu 10.04."
