I am looking for a tutorial creation software like WINK in Ubuntu 11.10 (WINK is not in the repositories). Is there anything I can use, that is easy to learn, exports to flash, and possible has audio capability, and of course works in Ubuntu versions (current and upcoming)?


There are different applications to record screencasts under Ubuntu. They may not allow creating flash videos directly, but usually you can convert the screencast to flash in a separate step.

Here's a list of applications that are available via apt:

You may even use VLC Media Player to record screencasts.

See also the Ubuntu Wiki on Screencasts in general and on creating Screencasts, especially using Istanbul, RecordMyDesktop, XVidCap and FFmpeg.


There seems to be almost no application that allows for creating interactive tutorials or screencasts. There's only one project named Salasaga (see also Salasaga on Launchpad) that looks very promising, but it's still in it's alpha stage.

  • Thank you for your comment! However, I am looking for an INTERACTIVE software, something with an easy way to attach buttons and actions to slides and movies. Any suggestions are welcome. – sabinedoll Jan 1 '12 at 19:24
  • @sabinedoll: ah, ok - AFAIK none of the tools i've listed allow for creating interactice screencasts. Sadly, i don't know any other software in the ubuntu repos that offer such a functionality. So i fear the only option is to install the Linxu version of WINK. – tohuwawohu Jan 5 '12 at 10:08
  • @sabinedoll: i've edited my answer, maybe Salasage would be useful for you. – tohuwawohu Jan 5 '12 at 10:21
