Dear Sirs, I am evaluating the use of Prezi for my presentations. One of the features I will probably need is to show a Prezi off-line, using the downloaded version of the prezi. However, a major drawback is that you do not offer a Linux version of the player software. Since I am not a regular Windows or Mac user, this renders Prezi useless for me. I hope you consider developing this software for Linux in the near future. Thank you.

Bruno,

I believe you CAN download prezi desktop for linux.
After the 30day trial you cannot create new prezi's, but you CAN play any downloaded prezi (in the pez file format) with it.

Having said that, I agree it would be a good idea to have both a linux and an android player for downloaded prezi's.

Kind regards,

Roel

the player, is basically flash, but as the prezi offline presentations are delivered in an EXE format, you need to use WINE to achieve that; it works, I used it that way under linux. Depending on the distro you use, wine sources should be included in your repos. Or check this:

I have create a small tool with GUI for that. I called it preziPlayer as it is a prezi player for linux :-)

You can find the software and a documentation / manual at:

https://github.com/TomFreudenberg/pre...

There is also already an apt (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint) package available for an easy installation. Hope it helps someone here.

This prezi is fine stuff :-)

I'd like to do a "how to" in french for my blog about portable prezi. But I don't have linux. May I ask you how does it work exactly ? I mean if this tool is installed on the computer running a linux distribution, how do you play the prezi ?

thank you in advance for your help :)

Hi Nathalie, I am sorry, that is not my business ;-) looks like problems with 64-bit FlashPlayer-plugin.

Could you inform me when you had finished your french translation, I would like to add a link on GitHub, too.
