    Default Screen Recorder.

    I searched for a screen recorder and i founded one called "recordMyDesktop".
    After some search on the site i found a link to a packman repository and some mirrors, all of them unavailable, searched on yast and nothing found and in build.opensuse.org i also found information about compatibility but not a link to a download so i downloaded the source to try to compile.
    To be honest i never had successfully compiled a tar.gz or a tar.bz so i once again tried to read carefully the installation instructions.

    ~$ sh autogen.sh
    ~$ ./configure
    ~$ make
    ~$ sudo make install
    After extracted and changed directory i tried "sh autogen.sh" and just says that the file doesn't exists.
    ./configure apparently worked and did the job but "make" does nothing.
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
    I already read three or four tutorials about compiling from the CLI and i don't know what im doing wrong but in a month of linux(two weeks of oSUSE) i never did the trick successfully.

    May someone explain where i failed or give a link to a .rpm suitable to openSUSE?

    regards

    For openSUSE 11.4 just add this repository
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...ntrib/standard
    or use the one click installer
    http://software.opensuse.org/ymp/ope...ecordmydesktop
    How do you find something like this?
    Goto http://software.opensuse.org and use the search function.

    Not a link to download?

    When I search the opensuse search engine for 'recordmydesktop' I obtain this: software.opensuse.org: Search Results with lots of hits!
    You should be able to download and install recordmydesktop from there.

    Having typed that, I believe one can do better than recordmydesktop with the 'ffmpeg' command. We had a discussion on that in this thread: xvidcap not working after update to 11.4

    The command I use to capture my desktop (1920x1200) at 15 frames per second, with pulse audio enabled is:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse -f x11grab -r 15 -s 1920x1200 -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec libx264 -vpre lossless_ultrafast -threads 0 output.avi
    To learn more about the ffmpeg screen capture options read here: How to do Proper Screencasts on Linux Using FFmpeg

    Edit - I see now martin_helm's post - that will teach me to start a post, go away for a shower and then come back and finish the post !

    The use of ffmpeg looks very interesting, I was not even aware of that
    possibility. Your posts contain always something from which I can learn.

    Thanks to both.
    I didn't know that software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.4 has a search menu for software in repositories so i used google as usual and that may be explanation to do not found.
    recordMyDesktop has a known problem with frame rates that happened in my desktop and makes the video like 100 times faster than the reality when saved so i gonna give a try to ffmpeg.

    Anyway. Thanks for the great tips.

    A link or two were missing, but I did a search on the "How to do Proper..." text and found:
    HOWTO: Proper Screencasting on Linux [Archive] - Ubuntu Forums

    This gave great options. Pulse didn't work for me so I deleted "-i pulse" and had to also delete "-vpre lossless_ultrafast" (the preset files seem to be missing in the default 12.1 opensuse install of ffmpeg) - but other than that, it's great - and best of all *reliable.* XVidCap crashes 3/4ths of the time if there are other tasks running.

    Thank You OldCPU!!!!

    The best screen recorder i've used on 12.3 so far is vokoscreen - https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...ge=vokoscreen1

    Not too shabby. I think I like Kaazam a lttile better still .. (though, I haven't used it for a long time, and it didn't work for me out of the box, whereas vokoscreen, for that matter, did). I don't like the three windows vokoscreen opens up on the panel/taskbar ... reminds me of xsane!

    Anyway, there was another "recommend desktop capture apps" thread a while back where someone mentioned a couple of others that were pretty good too, but I can't recall them at the moment.

    Easy desktop capture sure has come along nicely ... after a bit of a dry streak.
