    check out recordmydesktop
    I think it's in the packman repos

    You are correct Dave.

    @QueenZ

    Since you're using KDE I would recommend using qt-recordmydesktop as its aesthetics will integrate into KDE a lot better than the gtk version.

    Take Care,

    packman is your source for third party apps that don't ship with osuse. you really need it for a bunch of stuff. here are directions for adding access to it

    PackMan:FAQ (en) - Links2Linux

    read the section about Yast
    this will give you access to multimedia add-ons and a lot of other stuff

    if you're confused, ask back here, you pretty much need this

    edit: here, this will help too

    Haha sorry, should have been the other way around

    PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket recordmydesktop-qt

    You should definitely read up on repository management and how to add the basic repositories like packman. Here's a basic tutorial, it'll make your software management a lot easier

    Repository Management - openSUSE Forums

    If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

    Edit: If you use the one-click installer from the first link I gave you, it will automatically add the packman repository for you. But also read up with what Dave pointed out and the repository management link I gave you.

    Take Care,

    Ian

    that's a good tip, I didn't know the one-click installer would add the repo
    doing it by hand can be a little intimidating for a newbie
    reading up on the process is excellent advice
