After spending almost 2 hours trying to find packages and resolve dependencies
of swfdec-gnome package,
here I'll show you how to compile swfdec-gnome on simple steps.

Add this source at the end of your /etc/apt/sources.list (see other source
alternatives)

deb http://ubuntu.mirror.cambrium.nl/ubuntu/ lucid main universe

Now, download the source-code of swfdec-gnome (which includes
swfdec-thumbnailer), resolve the dependencies and compile it:

$ wget http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/GNOME/sources/swfdec-gnome/2.30/swfdec-gnome-2.30.1.tar.gz
$ tar -zxsf swfdec-gnome-2.30.1.tar.gz && cd swfdec-gnome-2.30.1
$ apt-get install libswfdec-0.8-0 libswfdec-0.8-dev libgconf2-dev
$ ./configure && make && make install

I hope to help someone with this. :)
