    1. Click on the "Applications" menu at the top of the screen.

    2. Scroll over the "Accessories" option.

    3. Click on the "Terminal" option to open a terminal window.

    4. Type the command "sudo apt-get install ffmpeg" to install the FFmpeg software.

    5. Type the command "ffmpeg -i filename.swf out_file.avi" to convert the SWF file to the AVI format. Replace "filename.swf" with the name of the SWF file. Replace "out_file.avi" with the name you want to give the AVI file. The conversion is finished when you see the command prompt again.
