Hello

So I am working on a website and find flash images (swf and what not) great. I am not an expert at them but I was starting to learn and I want to be able to make those graphics for my site, make it more interactive, move living, what not. I wanted to know, what in Linux can allow me to do this? Any ideas?

There are at least two options:

1) Get wine installed (it's a windows "compatibility layer") and then get flash installed. You probably won't have the latest version working but one or two back it's almost certain. Check this link http://appdb.winehq.org/ to see what's the latest version of flash supported under wine. You may also find helpful http://frankscorner.org/ it has several how to's but may not be recently updated.

2) Install a Windows XP/Vista VirualBox and run Flash from it, but I don't think that's what you're looking for.

Hope it helps :lolflag:
