Screen capture with Kazam or vokoscreen

Postby sodcore » 2019-09-02 21:47

I recently upgraded to Debian Trusty from Debian 9.
I have installed Kazam and VokoScreen to try to capture video and sound.
In my settings under sound no devices show up and I think it has something to do with alsa not being configured correctly.
But my main concern at this time is that when I try to capture the screen I get a black screen with only the mouse cursor showing.
In my research it seems to say I need to use Xorg instead of Gnome.
On Ubuntu it seems you can pick this with settings when you come to log in for the first time.
I am not sure what to do here.
I would like to just be able to use my gnome as it is my standard desktop Gui.
Any advice would be helpful.
Thanks,
Donald

There is no such thing as Debian Trusty (https://www.debian.org/releases/), are you sure you are not using Ubuntu?

How about trying simplescreenrecorder? That's always worked a treat for me. Use guvcview if you want your face in a webcam window with your screen recording.

SimpleScreenRecorder does not record the background either. It records a black screen and the mouse. Any idea's. I am completely at a loss here and I have done a pile of homework on this.
If I try to start it from command line is gives the following error:

Warning: Ignoring XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland on Gnome. Use QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland to run on Wayland anyway.

It is possible that your system doesn't use PulseAudio. Try using the ALSA backend instead.
