    Ok, I am looking for a screen recorder to record game play and take screen shots.

    Does anyone have recommendations of one that is easy and good to use?

    Please note, I am coming from using Dxtory in Windows. Looking for something that is equal to or even a better in Open Source and or Linux software.

    Thanks

    Steam lets you take screenshots at the push of a button (F12 by default). As for video recording, the easiest one to learn and it works most of the time: https://obsproject.com/

    You also have SimpleScreenRecorder and I forget the one that starts with a “V”. I agree with Unaccounted4 though. OBS is the best, it even does Chroma Key (Green Screen).

    Thank you for the responses, very helpful. I just recently adopted using Linux, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, as my primary OS. It is a whole new world indeed.

    I forgot that in OBS that you could record. Have some experience in streaming with it so it should be pretty easy to adapt to using it as a recorder.

    I have looked at SimpleScreenRecorder but saw some issues of using it to record and or stream game play.

    Thanks again

    For Ubuntu 14.04 just remember to install the ffmpeg PPA.

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
