When starting the program to do sound and recording the desktop I get this:
Couldn't open PCM device hw:0,0
Error while opening/configuring soundcard hw:0,0
Try running with the --no-sound or specify a correct device.
I have seen many ideas on this through my Google searches though no one has found success (that I have seen)
The closest one is to pass through the terminal is this:
recordmydesktop -device <insertsomenamehere>
since I know I can record audio through audacity I took a look at its recording device listing
it lists the device as "OSS: /dev/dsp1"
on my computer hardware info I have an identifier as C-Media Electronics, inc.
I have tried to pass to the program the command:
recordmydesktop -device /dev/dsp1
recordmydesktop -device "/dev/dsp1"
I also tried using the C-Media name of the card though with no avail.
Is there a command somewhere to retrieve the propercommand so recordmydesktop knows what to use?
I found my solution in some obscure posting on another site.
Here was my resolution for those who may find this later.
recordmydesktop -device hw:1,0
apparently the default is hw:0,0 and you can increment the first digit (I read somewhere)
So I tried 1 for the first of the two digits and it worked perfectly.
As an aside, doing the above command grabs my whole screen so I just went into the gtk-recordmydesktop and clicked advanced, went to the sound tab and for 'device' I removed DEFAULT and replaced it with "hw:1,0".
I then drew my selection box hit record and all went perfectly.
