    I run the recordmydesktop in the terminal,after click a link in a web site I pressed Ctrl-C in the terminal,recordmydesktop doesn't work...

    But if I only stayed on the desktop for minutes and then press Ctrl-C in the terminal,recordmydesktop works!

    error message:

    Locking assertion failure.  Backtrace:

    what's the matter with my recordmydesktop?

    anyone can help me?

      Upgrade to a newer distribution (eg, Ubuntu intrepid).
