I am looking for a desktop recording application like democreator, which can automatically create tool tips of the input key pressed in the video being recorded. For example, when I press Alt+Tab, it will create a tooltip like "Entered Alt+Tab" and so on.

The Question is: Is there something equivalent to that for Ubuntu? I don't want to use Windows software via Wine.

Update: One answerer mentions keymon. Thanks. But it was not what I was looking for. Keymon runs on the screen blocking some area, and I wanted a tooltip like feature to be displayed in the video only.

    Have a look at Record My Desktop, and let me know – Mitch Jul 8 '12 at 9:42
  • @Mitch, It does not include the key presses on the video. – Anwar Jul 8 '12 at 9:42

I use key-mon with recordmydesktop. You should take a look : http://code.google.com/p/key-mon/

sudo apt-get install keymon

or maybe screenkey, initially based on the key-mon project. You can install screenkey with

sudo apt-get install screenkey
