    This is
    recordmydesktop-0.3.8.1.tar
    The above instructions except it's:

    tar xvf recordmydesktop-0.3.8.1.tar

    If you're really willing to learn, then you can always do

    tar --help to get a list of commands or 'man tar'.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Something told me this was coming.

    Do you have either one of the following; gtk-recordMyDesktop or qt-recordMyDesktop?

    Also from the command line you can:
    Code:
    $ recordmydesktop --no-sound -o filename.ogg
    That will give you a full screen capture and you can use ctrl-c to stop the recording.
    I would also suggest as streaker69 mentioned read up on the man pages a bit.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    yes i just now figured out that i had downloaded the wrong app after reading up on this program on the main page..

    So, to use the gui interface i got this version of it, gtk-recordmydesktop-0.3.7.2..


    I have run this command
    tar xzvf

    And was able to unzip the file.

    But when i run the cd command i get this error.
    bt ~ # cd gtk-recordmydesktop-0.3.7.2.tar.gz
    -bash: cd: gtk-recordmydesktop-0.3.7.2.tar.gz: Not a directory

    never mind the post, i am an idiot and i just now figured out what i was doing wrong.

    SLAP BLOODHACKER LOL

    ok guys i have fully installed gtk-recordmydesktop-0.3.7.2.tar.gz, but i am still not able to run it in a gui interface..

    when i go to the command line i type recordmydesktop, and i get the command line interface and not the gui interface...

    That's because it's going to be gtk-recordmydesktop or something like that.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
