Hello archie101,

could you please be more verbose and tell us what you mean with "does not work"? And please provide more information about which distribution you are using, how you installed recordMyDesktop.

Markus

and i ran it with recordmydesktop --use-jack system:capture_1 and the output was

Initial recording window is set to:
X:0 Y:0 Width:1280 Height:1024
Adjusted recording window is set to:
X:0 Y:0 Width:1280 Height:1024
Your window manager appears to be Fluxbox

Initializing...
Could not create new client!
Make sure that Jack server is running!

and i am not sure on how to make sure the jack server is running.
