I want to operate Kazam in terminal. Is there any command to start kazam and start screencasting instantly?

(I am not questing the command kazam --silent)

1 Answer 1


The only way I came across is exactly using kazam --silent in combination with xdotool, by creating a function and putting it in ~/.bashrc:

k () { 
 kazam --silent &> /dev/null & 
 sleep 1 
 xdotool key 'Super+Ctrl+r'; 

Now every time I run k kazam runs and starts recording, we can use Super+Ctrl+p to Pause/Resume recording and Super+Ctrl+f to stop recording.
