    How to install Wink for Ubuntu 8.10 [64-bit]

    Updated for Ubuntu 10.04

    Name: Wink
    Version: 1.5.1060

    Wink is a great program for creating video tutorials through the use of flash animation. You can take screen captures with Wink either on-demand or on a time-delay basis and then compile those screenshots into a swf file for use in a web page. You can also add explanation boxes, buttons and titles to your presentations. If you're looking for an easy way to create a video tutorial on how to use certain software applications or perhaps even a website then you definitely want to check out Wink. Unfortunately the wink package available in the Ubuntu repository is only available for the 32-bit architecture so this guide will walk you through installing it on the 64-bit version of Ubuntu.


    1. First off you'll need to install the following package.
      Code:
      sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
    2. The next step is to download the Wink package. Click here for a list of download locations. Select one of the listed mirrors and save the file to your desktop.
    3. Download the libstdc++5 package. Click here for a list of download locations. Select one of the listed mirrors and save the file to your desktop.
    4. Open your terminal and type the following:
      Code:
      mkdir -p /tmp/libstdc5
      dpkg --extract ~/Desktop/libstdc++5*.deb /tmp/libstdc5
      sudo cp /tmp/libstdc5/usr/lib/* /usr/lib32
      sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i ~/Desktop/wink*.deb
      sudo rm /usr/lib/wink/libexpat.so.0
      sudo ln -s /lib32/libexpat.so.1 /lib32/libexpat.so.0
      sudo ln -s /lib32/libexpat.so.0 /usr/lib/wink/libexpat.so.0
    5. Before running the program for the first time you need to make sure that all required libraries are installed.
      Code:
      ldd /usr/lib/wink/wink
    6. If none of the libraries say "not found" then you should now be able to open wink from the Applications > Graphics menu.



    NOTES:
    If any libraries are listed as not found then you may need to install additional packages or as a last resort manually extract the files from a package into your /usr/lib32 directory. You can search the Ubuntu repository for the name of the missing library. Click here to use the "Package Contents" search. Enter the name of the library you are missing and search for a package that contains it. When you've found the correct package download the i386 version and extract the missing library into your /usr/lib32 folder.


    To uninstall type the following:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -r wink

    Thanks,

    works on 8.10 64 bits too ! I uses the default gcc-4.2-base, not gcc-3.3-base.

    Make sure you're not installing the package over a previous installation. Type "sudo apt-get purge wink" or if you've already removed it using apt-get then type "sudo dpkg -P wink".

    I've updated the guide above for Ubuntu 8.10. Try starting over with the new instructions above and see if it makes any difference. Instead of installing with dpkg try double clicking on the deb package that you created and see if that helps.

    Re: How to install Wink for Ubuntu 8.04 [64-bit]

    It also works on 9.04 (64-bit). The bug when capturing frames with Pause or Shift+Pause still remains. The workaround is to turn off Num Lock.

    Add: I was using wink_1.5.1060-7_i386.deb package.

    I got

    http://ftp.kfki.hu/linux/debian/pool...060-8_i386.deb

    That did work, after also installing:

    apt-get install libstdc++5

    The ubuntu one gives the expat1 problem mentioned above:

    wink_1.5.1060-3ubuntu1.2_i386.deb

    Re: How to install Wink for Ubuntu 8.04 [64-bit]

    Has anyone got an update for these instructions that works in ubuntu 9.10, heres my issue - wink seems to install, correct icon appears in grphics menu but..when i click on it there's a brief flash and nothing happens. I ran the ldd /usr/lib/wink/wink and all seem to be there.
    a couple of minutes later synaptics package manager repoted an error and removed wink and dependent libraries???
    Can anyone help?
    incidently I've tried WINE with windows build wink 2, it kind of works at first - although no sound - but when rendered urgh....doesn't really work, missing huge parts, text boxes and annotations disappear e.t.c
