How to take a screencast in xfce?


On linux i utilized recordmydesktop with the graphical user interface for gnome there is something similar in xfce?

Is there some program with graphical interface?

If you mean a screenshot, see man xwd. The xwd program is part of X Window.

I would know a screencast (a video screen capture).

The title of the topic is wrong.

http://xvidcap.sourceforge.net/ is an option, I believe others exist.. but you're not very clear about your requirements.

A screenshot is a still image. You were asking about screenshots in this thread, and have been given several answers already:

http://daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=677

However, in this thread, I cannot tell if you are asking for video (motion picture) capture or if this is a duplicate of the other thread.

I'm not aware of any ports/packages that do that. As BSDfan666 pointed out, there is an application, xvidcap, that might be able to be ported. It is not in the ports tree.

recordmydesktop is available from FreeBSD Ports.

Would be problematic ported in openbsd?

Consider: you would be responsible for porting it.

OpenBSD's culture is unlike any other OS's. The OpenBSD Project is resource constrained. You can ask on the ports@ mailing list if someone is working on a port for a specific application, but if not, you will have to do it yourself.

The only reason a port gets added to the tree is that someone is interested in it, ports it, posts the new port on the ports@ mailing list, gets it tested, and gets it accepted.

OpenBSD has main applications that I used to make a workstation.

Some applications are useful, though not essential, so i asked which alternatives exist on this platform.

When will be more practice with the environment, maybe I could achieve some package if the procedure is not too complex or long.

Information on what ports are available can be found at the following third-party site:

http://openports.se/

What packages are available for i386 can be found at the following:

http://www.openbsd.org/4.3_packages/i386.html

...& of course, information on the packages/ports system can be found in Section 15 of the FAQ:

http://openbsd.org/faq/faq15.html

Default to compile recordmydesktop

to compile recordmydesktop:

install libvorbis then unpack recordmydesktop. Run configure this way (using ksh)
env CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib -lm -logg -lvorbis -lossaudio" CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-oss
(otherwise if you use bash you can omit "env")

than modify both files "src/opendev.c" and "include/rmdtypes.h"
change in both files the line
#include <sys/soundcard.h>
with the line
#include <soundcard.h>

and now:
gmake
gmake install

to run recordmydesktop:
recordmydesktop -device /dev/audio (or your device)

let me know if this work....

mmm.... I assume that you installed the compiler when you installed openbsd (i.e. you have gcc)... that error could happen if you pass the configure a bad LDFLAGS. From your screenshot I can see only CPPFLAGS... did you pass also the other flags?

another thing... from the screenshot it seems that you wrote CPPFLAGS="-l etc" ("l" like local) while it must be "-I etc" ("I" like INCLUDE)
