Kazam is available in the official Ubuntu repositories, but it's an old version (1.4) and ppa:kazam-team/unstable-series has not been updated for 16.04 (and does not include debian patches). I'll ping one of the maintainer in #kazam on freenode but in the meantime you can install Kazam 1.5.3 from my own ppa: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:sylvain-pineau/kazam ...


If you also want visible recordings of mouse clicks or key strokes, then screenkey is your best bet:


cd to /etc/apt/sources.d/ open up the kazam.list file and make sure you change repo to devel. /etc/apt/sources.list.d# ls kazam-team-ubuntu-unstable-series-xenial.list kazam-team-ubuntu-unstable- /etc/apt/sources.list.d# cat kazam-team-ubuntu-unstable-series-xenial.list deb
