How to create them


Soeren used vnc2swf to record that flash movie.

The installation is easy if you have a Linux dist which provides all needed python packages (pyGames and others I don't remember).

You would need a VNC-Server installed (not too tricky normaly). The installation of vnc is easy. There are a lot of free vncserver and clients out there in the internet.

[list some here]

To record a vnc session is not very complicated:

  • First you have to run a vnc server and the client.
  • The next step is to start vnc2swf.py with the address of the vncserver and a file name.

For this reason it is necessary to provide a decicated general Free-GIS education server to support GRASS and Free GIS teaching and education efforts.

From our point of view a natural home for Free-GIS-Edu documentation, video tutorials, presentations, PDFs, etc. could be:
