It is not very often that I need a screen recorder - but today I did. Being a quite recent Fodora convert I had a quick squint about the forums and found nothing but problems with the more well known desktop recorders or commandline ffmeg / mencoder solutions.
A name that did crop up a few times is KAZAM - an Ubuntu Launchpad project... hmmm I thinks - shouldn't be too hard to get up on F15 being a python script... this Fedora solution is based on the Debian howto found here: http://charlieharvey.org.uk/page/kazam_on_squeeze
And here it is:
1) You will need a few tools and dependencies 1st:
sudo yum install bzr intltool python-keybinder gnome-python-rsvg python-xlib python-distutils-extra python-pycurl x264-libs
2) Grab the code branch from launchpad by bzr:
sudo bzr branch lp:kazam
3) change into Kazam folder and install:
sudo python setup.py install
4) Job done!
You'll now have an Applications -> Sound & Video -> Kazam Screencaster shortcut in your menu
Once you have started a recording (with audio if you like and have pulse setup) you can pause / stop from the bottom panel applet and can then save the MKV to disk for or open further editing. The "Edit with" option does not seem to be working yet - at least not on my machine but that is no major hardship
Happy Screencording guys
