There is a repository (ppa:sylvain-pineau/kazam) for the latest Kazam, but that one, when I add it, it says it had no Release file and therefore cant be used.

Now, how do I install the latest Kazam with webcam support on my Ubuntu 19.04?

Thanks a lot! :)

    PPA's are 3rd party repositories, and you should check for support yourself, as they are supported by the owner, but Ubuntu. Looking at launchpad.net/~sylvain-pineau/+archive/ubuntu/kazam/+packages I see support stopped at 18.04, so you need to contact the owner, or find another source for the software you like. Note the owner states This PPA currently publishes packages for Bionic, Artful, Zesty, Yakkety, and Xenial – guiverc May 4 at 4:01
  • Thank you! I sadly can't find any other PPA though. – Uwe Pfeifer May 4 at 4:14
  • You can trick/force your system to use the 'bionic' release for the PPA, but this involves doing homework to ensure you aren't creating problems or dependency-hell for yourself further down the road (eg. when you next need to release-upgrade to 19.10 etc). People who use this approach are probably more likely to nuke&install for each release instead of the intended release-upgrade path to avoid some pitfalls (I'm intentionally being vague as if you can't understand the approach I'm talking about, you probably don't have the skill to detect potential pitfalls before you hit them) – guiverc May 4 at 4:50
