How to install Wink in Ubuntu

Wink is a Tutorial and Presentation creation software, primarily aimed at creating tutorials on how to use software. Using Wink you can capture screenshots, add explanations boxes, buttons, titles etc and generate a highly effective tutorial for your users.

From the wink website:

    Wink requires GTK 2.4 or higher. The installer does not create any links/shortcuts. If you want shortcuts you will have to create them yourself. For a list of known issues in the linux version, view the readme.txt file in the wink directory after installation.

    If the NumLock key is switched on, hotkeys in Wink do not work under Linux. So make sure to turn off the NumLock key while capturing.

You can read all about Wink on its own web page here.

This tutorial is tested in Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04.1 (i686), but I suppose it can be use on Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10 (i686). For those using Ubuntu 64 bit, please read this.
