I'm trying to create a screencast for a bug report. In a F25 Beta VM I can do this by pressing Shift+Ctrl+Alt+R. On my F25 (updated) installation I can't. I guess this is because I uninstalled some package, but I don't know which one.

I'm using wayland (and want to reproduce a bug under wayland) so using X11 instead is no option.

I've tried recordmydesktop, but the GUI immediately crashes on start and the CLI can't record wayland windows, creating a black video instead.

Do I have to install some package(s)?

Hi Christian,


So, it lists one gnome-extension called easyscreencast, which I've had success with...on X, but the page says that it should work with wayland (which makes sense, since it's being run with some of the compositor's credentials).
That aside, have you tried opening a terminal and running

journalctl -f

and then trying to use the built-in GS recording method to see what errors pop-up?
If you aren't getting any errors, and it's still not recording, verify that the keybinding is still in place

gsettings get org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys screencast
