,swf Flash editors for Linux

Postby rec9140 on Sat Feb 20, 2010 12:16 pm

I loathe with a passion flash, unfortunately I am stuck with a task that needs to have a .swf file edited.

I've looked for something to do this but the options seem dated or sledgehammer for an ant.

flash4linux (f4l) - dead, entangled with some IP BS battle, dev stopped

OpenLaszlo - HUGE install of Java SDK, tomcat etc... just to edit

swftools - seems to have a lot of possible pitfalls for the install to compile..

Nothing in the software repos except the flash plugin stuff...

I just want to edit the .SWF file change some text into and re-save it to be used...

Is there any thing out there for KMint???

Thanks!

Of course they might be dated, since you are using free tools, and flash is a commercial product
--if you pay, you can get the latest versions of tools that can edit flash files

Anything anyone will suggest, if it doesn't work for you because of your system requirements, you will be back again
--the only reasonable option is to try it
    Find some tools and work with them, making sure you meet the tool's requirements and that you configure it well/correctly

I actually think openlazlo is pretty good, and would not be concerned about the download or size of the application
--that is partly based on providing the flash environment

I don't see a Linux version.. I don't use or support w*censored*, or m*censored*c... ONLY Linux, NATIVE LINUX. no wine, no crossover, no mono diseases

Requirements: http://www.adobe.com/products/fireworks ... moid=DRHYB

Linux is not listed.

$300 to edit one file... not happening...



These all also look to be w*censored* based these searches are the same I've seen they don't return accurate results.

Thanks, but this file will have to be recreated in non flash per current rules, this was a file prior to that requirement.

Flash Editors for linux (Specifically Mint 8)

Postby hypocorism on Wed Mar 03, 2010 1:00 pm

I edit Flash on Linux with a portable version of flash CS3. No messing around. I do own a copy of flash CS3, and that will work if you put approximately 16,000 hours of work into it copying stuff from windows and whatnot. However, the portable version just works right away. It has graphical glitches, but nothing too serious. Also, Sothink SWF decompiler runs fine under Wine.

Thanks but:

1) Cost of CS3 is out of the question. If its not free or dirt cheap, < $40, its not an option.

2) I do not and will not use wine, w os, or any thing like that. I only use Linux, native Linux apps.

Thanks for the info.
