Have it installed but when I run it all I see is a screenshot of my desktop on screenkast then hit new and ask for vnc password. I put it and a blue screen pops up with the terminal.I am running screenkast from a launcher. when I close the server it seems as though it is processing something then I hit play but nothing happens it is just a picture of my desktop. I see the play button and it is running what I recorded but it is only a screen shot of my desktop. any ideas what is going on. Then I tried to save what I had even though it was a video of a screenshot and tried to exported after saving it as avi file and said error.Using it on ubuntu gutsy. Any help would be appreciated. thanks

Hi there.

That's weird. What vncserver are you using?

I'm currently putting some work into ScreenKast (mainly porting it to KDE4, but also improving the hideous use-friendlyness ;-)). I'll keep you guys posted of any changes.

The site seems down; was the project abandoned? :(

Yes and no actually.
I was lacking funds to continue the captorials website (streaming video, you know ;-) ), but recently, some people contacted me with hosting solutions, and I've started working on a new version, together with a new screenKast app (kde 4). It won't be for any time soon (think months, not weeks), but expect something to happen. :)

Would be nice to add screenKast to ksnapshot, for instance whith a video tab or a drop down box to switch photo/video capture.

Hi,

great app, easy to install thanks to the ubuntu packages.

When I start a session, though, I get a terminal whereas I'd much rather record my desktop. Am I missing something stupid? Any help greatly appreciated. Will write a howto in return :)

Cheers

Hi,
i cannot install on Debian SID with your package because there is a dependency of libxml++2.6-1c2a in the INFO File but this is not in the unstable Repository.

Can you change this or is thre an misunderstanding by me?

Thanks for advice.

Gosh, you're right, forgot to re-package screenkast too. libinstrudeo-dev was already fixed though.
Should finally work now.

Hi I installed onto my Mepis system using this:
apt-get install libxml++2.6c2a libdc1394-13-dev vncserver

http://instrudeo.bpower2.com/packages/Ubuntu/dapper/libinstrudeo0_0.1.3-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
http://instrudeo.bpower2.com/packages/Ubuntu/dapper/screenkast_0.1.3-0ubuntu1_i386.deb

When i try to launch screenkast as a user it gives;
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
screenkast: cannot connect to X server :0.0

As root the program runs but i get a blue screen..

Could this be related to the fact that i use gdm instead of kdm on a kde desktop?

I think you don't have a vnc-server running. The How-to-install captorial, here: http://captorials.com/index.php?cmd=software
should help you along.

If not, just reply and I'll walk you through.

I followed the video tutorial on http://captorials.com/index.php?cmd=browse

So i think i followed all the steps... was there anything left out of the video?

According to the error message that's returned to you, it seems like the local VNC server isn't running. ScreenKast offers you the possibility to start up a server, but if you do this for the first time, you'll have to enter a password (so not everyone is able to connect to it).

You can use the "vncpasswd" command to set a password for you local VNC server. Just run vncpasswd in a terminal and enter your password (twice). From then, on, you should be able to start/stop the server from within ScreenKast.

If you want this explanation in a graphical way, please see the software section at captorials.com. If you encounter another error, don't hesitate to reply or contact me personally.

Nice application!

I have two small request though.

Once you save the video ScreenKast asks to save the project first. Is that necessary? Maybe you could create a temporary file?

Could you add the vncserver as a dependency to the Ubuntu packages?

For now, this is mandatory, but it'll be fixed in the next release. So will the vncserver (or tightvncserver?) dependency, thanks for the tip.

Hi,
Sorry, it wasn't obviously Your fault. I discovered there were two instances of libinstrudeo (5 files), installed in /usr/local/lib and /usr/lib. So I backed-up those in the 1-st dir, and left those in the second one as they should be. Screenkast started without the last error. Now remains how to use it? :)
Best wishes!
