Thanks fot the answers, proprably my problem it's for a dirty upgrad from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 and now the upgrade to the 10.10. IMHO, the problem is in the applet bar up-right, time ago after an update I've lost the Shutdown menù.

I will formatt and install a clear 10.10 version from ISO.

Recrod myDesktop save in ogv with Theora codec and it's a best quality that I never seen, converting it in a sequence of image, there isn't blur and you can use they for a textual tutorial.

This is most likely due to package changes in Ubuntu 10.10 which has affected recordMyDesktop. It's likely a update to recordMyDesktop itself will be required to fix the error you are seeing

Not to offend the developers of recordMyDesktop, but it's a very basic program. If your looking for a more powerful recording tool check out ffmpeg, it's able to screen capture both audio and video perfectly. It's a command line based recorder, but the guide below explains everything you need to know about it, along with detailed installation instructed.

There are lot alternatives to recordMyDesktop .I am using 'XVidCap' to record my desktop. nice app output can be saved in MPEG and AVI formats. It is available in the software center
