Ubuntu – How to author Adobe Flash movies


Is there a decent GUI for building Flash movies in Ubuntu? An easy-to-use API would be fine, too. I did find Ming (API for creating .swf files) and am going to check that out.

You can use Gimp with swf plugin.

Download the plugin to your folder ~/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins and mark it as executable.

The install libjpeg62-dev libfreetype6-dev zlib1g-dev from repositories and swtools from here.

Or if you're lazy, just paste this on terminal:

sudo apt-get install gimp libjpeg62-dev libfreetype6-dev zlib1g-dev && cd ~/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins && wget -c http://files.myopera.com/area42/files/flash-swf-export.py && chmod +x ~/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins/flash-swf-export.py && cd ~/Downloads && wget -c http://www.swftools.org/swftools-0.9.1.tar.gz && tar -xf swftools-0.9.1.tar.gz && cd ~/Downloads/swftools-0.9.1/ && ./configure && make && sudo make install 

The go to "File" > "Flash SWF Export"
