    Thank you for the suggestion! but IMO is def NOT comparable to CamStudio. the second I run record my desktop stuff starts freezing, ha and I have 8GB Ram and a 1GB Radeon Graffix card, also it wont let me save the vids as AVI? :thumbd: I think I will stick to Windows for these tasks.


    But here is a quick ref for whoever wants to try it.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install recordmydesktop gtk-recordmydesktop

    Works fine here, even on my 2GB netbook, make sure latest video drivers are installed. With ATI, use Unity 2D desktop.
