  • Hi,

    When I try to run recordmydesktop at OpenSuse 10.2, I get this error message and the program exits:

    "Initial recording window is set to:
    X:0   Y:0    Width:1440    Height:900
    Adjusted recording window is set to:
    X:0   Y:2    Width:1440    Height:896
    Your window manager appears to be KWin

    XDamage extension not found!!!"

    What happens here?

     
    • The XDamage extension must be present for
      recordMyDesktop to operate properly.

      You can check for it's presence by running
      ~$  xdpyinfo |grep DAMAGE       
      and the output must be the word DAMAGE.

      Normally  it should be present. If it isn't then
      the problem is in your configuration, with which I'm afraid
      I can't help.
      Make sure that you have the correct drivers for your video
      card and libxdamage installed. Also you might find better answers
      if you ask this question on a openSUSE specific forum.

      John.-
