capture mouse drawing on fedora


Hey all,

In order to prepare videocasts, I need to capture the screen with mouse annotation, kind of like "drawing on the screen" by using the mouse.

I am looking for a program that can replace "ubuntu annotate plugin" in fedora 24. Can you recommend anything to draw on the screen?

Thanks in advance.

Have a look here and see if Ardesia will work for you.

Xournal supports writing and drawing on PDF's. Not sure if that's what your looking for.

Hi.

I almost remember one in "toys" tho it may have been for putting "bullet holes" on the screen some of the top "screen capture" apps may do this?

And\or; I see Okular, Annotate and others searching: draw on screen Fedora

use ffmpeg, replace with your actual screen size, adjust file name to suit you and q to quit. Command Line of course, or you could put it in a bash script and run it like that.
Code:
ffmpeg -r 30 -s 1600x900 -f x11grab -i :0.0 -vcodec msmpeg4v2 -qscale 2 screencap001.avi
Records your entire screen. Maybe able to adjust screen size to fit your needs as well to make it smaller.
