I needed a screen recorder for some upcoming video tutorials that I might put together, but found that normal recorders such as recordmydesktop did not do the job well. After some ‘googling’, I can across Simple Screen Recorder, but there were no packages in the Debian or Kali repo’s. However, the developer’s github page has all that you need here.
The compile it, do the following:-
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install build-essential pkg-config qt4-qmake libqt4-dev libavformat-dev libavcodec-dev libavutil-dev libswscale-dev libasound2-dev libpulse-dev libjack-jackd2-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libx11-dev libxfixes-dev libxext-dev libxi-dev g++-multilib libx11-6 libxext6 libxfixes3 libxfixes3:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 cd /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu sudo ln -s libGL.so.1 libGL.so sudo ln -s libGLU.so.1 libGLU.so sudo ln -s libX11.so.6 libX11.so sudo ln -s libXext.so.6 libXext.so sudo ln -s libXfixes.so.3 libXfixes.so sudo ldconfig
Now clone the developer’s repo , so that you have a local copy.
git clone https://github.com/MaartenBaert/ssr cd ssr
If you run in Kali as root (which is considered a bad security practice) then you need to comment out the root check in the install script as shown below:-
Now simply run the install script..
