This is how to compile the cvs version of recordMyDesktop. I am using 64Studio 2.1 64-bit First lets install all necessary packages (make sure backports are enabled) $ sudo apt-get install cvs automake1.7 xorg-dev libice-dev libsm-dev libxext-dev libxdamage-dev libxfixes-dev libogg-dev libvorbis-dev libtheora-dev Now lets download the source via cvs. First Login using $ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@recordmydesktop.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/recordmydesktop login Now we can download. Note you can swap gtk-recordmydesktop for qt-desktop if you want (if your using KDE). $ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@recordmydesktop.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/recordmydesktop co -P recordmydesktop gtk-recordmydesktop Lets install recordmydesktop first $ cd recordmydesktop $ sh autogen.sh $ ./configure If everything looks fine go ahead and do $ sudo make Pray you get no errors! $ sudo make install Now lets install the gnome frontend gtk-recordmydesktop $ cd ../gtk-recordmydesktop Same process as before $ sh autogen.sh $ ./configure $ sudo make $ sudo make install Now run in terminal $ gtk-recordMyDesktop Voila! To record sound through Jack go to Advanced -> Sound tab and check "Use Jack for audio capture" and Ctrl click for multiple entries. Happy capturing. :)
