I have used recordmydesktop for a while and it used to work very well, but lately it has begun to draw lines through the desktop on the rendered video.

How can I fix this, or what alternative software can I used to record my desktop?

Fixed it by changing my resolution to 1360 / using kazam
But now my video comes out inclined!

tilted screen


Try Kazam. You can install it from Ubuntu Software Center.

  • thnaks it worked :) but i don't get a straight line in the recorded video :p have you an idea about that – The Beast Jul 23 '15 at 16:39

Solved by changing my resolution from 1366 to 1360...

Just go to Diplays > Resolution > 1360

But now I have another problem - the video recorded is not in a straight line!!

I think Kazam is the Best, you can install it via terminal, by typing :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kazam-team/unstable-series
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kazam python3-cairo python3-xlib

To remove it, do:

sudo apt-get remove kazam python3-cairo python3-xlib

Or you can install it from Ubuntu Software Center.
