Recording console sessions

Wednesday, Dec 26, 2007


Coolest way is to use the package recordmydesktop and upload the video to YouTube or something!

Since my desktop is quite large, you might instead record a window:

recordmydesktop --follow-mouse -width 256 -height 256


Want to show someone your work? Try script. It annoyingly has all your errors and frantic backspaces, however I at least find it beneficial.

script mywork

and ctrl-d or exit stops it recording.

History is another command I run very often, try it.

You can also hardcopy and log sessions with screen.
