Peter gives you a brief taster of how to use screen capture program recordMyDesktop, and its graphical cousin gtk-recordMyDesktop, to make videos from what is happening on your screen.

    Do you know whether you can capture video on multiple screens at once with recordmydesktop?

    Hi it depends on what linux distro your using, in Fedora I just put up a terminal log in as root with the command su - and then the password and runs yum install gtk-recordmydesktop. If your using Ubuntu use sudo apt-get install gtk-recordmydesktop. Then is's installing it self.

    Happy recording.
