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
~$ 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?
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.

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.
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.
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.
I have been teaching for about 10 years. Giving demos is important task for most teachers. After reading an article about screen recording software, I started using My screen Recorder. The video qaulity and ability to capture the audio from your speakers and the microphone at the same time helps me create the perfect training videos. Having something to give my students helps retention and makes my job easier.
