I downloaded the deb, following the answer in this question:
When I run:
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/27270379/swftools_0.9.0-0ubuntu1_i386.deb sudo dpkg --install swftools_0.9.0-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
The following packages have unmet dependencies: swftools:i386 : Depends: libgif4:i386 (>= 4.1.6) but it is not going to be installed Depends: gsfonts:i386 but it is not installable
I tried calling
sudo apt-get -f install which removed the manually installed package, and then installed libgif4 and gsfonts using apt-get, however libgif4 seems to be the wrong version (I'm thinking 4.1.9 as it's the latest), and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it to install version 4.1.6. And as far as I can tell gsfonts is installed, I'm not sure why I'm getting that error message.
What should I do? I need to batch convert 92 animated gif images to web-optimised swf, and I was planning on doing this using gif2swf.
