Kazam is a simple screen shot and screen capture tool for Ubuntu / Linux Mint.
To install it :
Open Terminal and give the following command :
Once installed, it will show up under the “Sound and Video” menu.
Using it is fairly simple, either choose “Screencast” or “Screenshot” mode. Each of these options will have the choice of selecting full screen capture, a specific area or a window.
Besides that, choose to include the mouse pointer during captures (useful when recording screencast) and setting a time delay.
During screenshot mode, once the capture is taken, by default it will be saved in the Pictures folder. Though it can be saved anywhere as needed.
While recording, a red dot will be visible on the menu bar instead of the default rectangle icon for Kazam indicating that the specified area is being recorded.
The screencast video file can be saved at any desired location and viewed using media players.
This is a fairly simple and uncluttered tool for capturing screenshots and recording screen activities just like Istanbul. Do give it a try.
