gtk record my desktop pixelation

Recommended Posts

Well the driver is working and is running. Why Ubuntu says it isn't is beyond me.

run nvidia-settings in a terminal and see what happens.

 

You should get the nvidia settings panel

The fact that both glxinfo says it is working and nvidia-settings is displaying the window and says the driver is installed does in fact imply that the driver is up and running.

ok, so I guess I'll ignore what it says and get back to installing kazam. I'll post back after I test it out and let you know how it works for me.

There is no natty ppa. Not sure how you added it, did you check to see if one existed?

run it in a terminal and see what the output says, it will likely give some kind of error

 

run kazam

 

Not sudo kazam, just kazam

Same error Adam is getting.

 

I would build it from source if I were you.

 

Download the tar.gz extract it, and read the readme

Source is basically the code needed to run a program. You need to download the make tools to do it and then follow the directions. I will build it from source to let you know if it works.

Its a simple matter of typing setup.py :lol:

 

It isn't like there is some difficult command :shrug:

 

Then just watch the output, if a dependency is missing it will toss an error at the end.

 

Install what is missing then try running it again.

 

I was only missing two dependencies when I built it, and it works a treat.

 

Created an x86_64 rpm for opensuse if any one is interested.

Sanford, if you want to try the source, first remove the previous version.

 

Then, sudo apt-get install build-essentials python-distutils-extra libcanberra-gtk3-module

 

Then download the tar.gz source file. Extract it, and then open a terminal. Use the cd (change directory) command to go to where the folder is. Example cd ~/Downloads/kazam-1.0.3

 

Follow this with a sudo python setup.py install and then about 20 seconds later you should have it installed. In terminal, try /usr/local/bin/kazam if it comes up, you're good. If not, I haven't a clue.

 

Bruce is helping me on this but I'm not sure it's gonna work on Mint 11.

hi Adam, I was trying to find an alternative to kazam and I stumbled across a video of a guy using kazam on mint. He was using the commands for Maverick , so I decided to try it , and to my surprise , it worked! Try it out and see if it works for you. works great BTW , very easy to use , didn't have to set a thing, recorded without the pixelation of GTK , and it doesn't require any typing of any script , which makes it easy for beginners like me! :mrgreen:

 

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:and471/kazam-daily-builds

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade #required for Maverick

sudo apt-get install kazam

I just tried xvidcap, it works pretty well. I'll see if I can get kazam.

I just tested it again with the audio and the sound was a bit crackly, but I think it might be due to the mic settings. I'm gonna try it again and turn down the mic and see if it works better. works Much better than GTK , though, so I'm happy.
