When using recordmydesktop it opens okay. When I click record, the top bar disappears from view. Cannot see the stop icon. Cannot do anything but close other applications and hit Ctl Alt Del to logout.
I know this has been posted before with no resolution. Has someone else experienced this? How did they fix the problem.
Tried using ffmpeg to record.
ffmpeg -f x11grab -s 1024x768 -r 30 -i :0.0 ~/out.mpg
Now it did record, but only the desktop background, not the windows that I wanted it to record. You can see the mouse move around, change into a cursor (I was in the console briefly). Opened an app which did not appear in the recording. Ghosts?? Anyone else experienced this?
You can see the output here...
