Wink is a Tutorial and Presentation creation software. Unfortunatly it's only available as binary and only for x86.
It's works stable. I don't know any comparable programm for flash on linux.
Please add it to portage.
from the homepage:
Wink is a Tutorial and Presentation creation software, primarily aimed at creating tutorials on how to use software (like a tutor for OpenOffice:-) etc). Using Wink you can capture screenshots, add explanations boxes, buttons, titles etc and generate a highly effective tutorial for your users.

but work's fine in my amd64
just a side note, according the FSH standards shouldn't a binary package go to /opt instead to /usr?

You're right. Here's an updated ebuild.
package build flawlessy, but have to be changed the permission on /opt/wink, otherwise operation like "Create New Flash Preloader" or "View Tutorial Project" will fail, since the program will not be able to write in its own directory.
Is there a *-r2.ebuild to fix this permissions bug?
whoops.. CC myself

Final ebuild for wink 1.5-r1 - Samples dir permission fixed
This is the final ebuild with the permission fixed. Instead of giving 777 to Samples dir, I preferred to allow full control to "users" group so any user who will decide to view the tutorials will not have any problem.

Is it just me, or dose the "# create wink shellscript" line seems to overwrite the executable? (This in turn makes the shellscript recurse till it runs out of file handles.)
Simply moving it to after the main 'mv' line fixes this.

fixed download uri
wink binary depends on libexpat.so.0, which is provided by <dev-libs/expat-2. Also, as #10 says, wink binary is overwritten by the shell script creation in the installation process.

This ebuild which fixes the binary overwrite and expat dependency installation bugs
Created attachment 151359 [details]
Wink depends on '<dev-libs/expat-2', but dev-libs/expat-2.0.1 is now the standard, and both of them cannot live together. So, this ebuild gets and compiles its own copy of expat-1.95.8, it installs it at /opt/wink/lib, and the wink launcher shell script now changes LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point out to the private expat copy before launching wink binary. As wink is a 32 bit binary, KEYWORDS is now restricted to ~x86 (I don't know how to teach expat compilation stage that it must be compiled in 32 bit mode).
I could not use wink until I emerged libstdc++ and enabled X use flag for pango. These should be added to dependencies.
For x86_64 compatibility (error : /opt/wink/wink: error while loading shared libraries: libexpat.so.0: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64)
mv libexpat.so libexpat.so.bak
mv libexpat.so.0 libexpat.so.0.bak
ln -s /usr/lib32/libexpat.so.1 libexpat.so
ln -s /usr/lib32/libexpat.so.1 libexpat.so.0
Could you all please test version available in my overlay (http://overlays.gentoo.org/dev/nelchael/browser/x11-misc/wink) - it works for me on amd64, I'd welcome a test on x86.

I think the ebuild should be name wink-bin. I do not like it installs files with spaces in their names. That typically breaks find(1) when I use it on a filesystem. Other than that, I can run wink on ~x86 but I haven't managed to capture anything as far I can see. Maybe it is related to my fvwm2 window manager or messages like this:
(wink:3716): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_window_invalidate_rect_full: assertion `GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed

Please have a look at [[https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=468626][BUG 468626]],The wink's editing buttons are all gray in gentoo amd64,but they all worked in debian 6 64bit.
This should be fixed anyway.
