I'm also interested in kazam, version 1.5.3 ( unstable ) have more some little feature ( example mouse click highlight )

@Bachsau thinking about it, but for now taking care if something it's required (but no one is blaming about nothing), probably a deletion will happen in a future.

If something is working and there is no obvious reason to do any changes to it, I would not consider it dead just because there is no constant development.

Disowning Kazam. Seems to be kinda dead upstream :(

For anyone else looking for screencast software with webcam overlay support, take a look at the community/obs-studio package.

I am still working on this FredBezies.....right now I am getting only this output...

rect = cairo.RectangleInt(0, 0, 1, 1)
AttributeError: module 'cairo' has no attribute 'RectangleInt'

This seems to indicate cairo hasn't got the RectangleInt attribute anymore. I do not think that is the case, I ran a test program where I used RectangleInt and it seems to work on my manjaro linux system (using python3)

I will keep working on it...I really want this thing to work.

Okay...I think I have something that will work. I have fixed the main issues to at least get it running. I can at least run it locally on my Manjaro box. I would make a new one called "kazam-git" but I haven't done any packages yet and don't think this should be my first one. Here is the git repository where I have it working at least on my box.

So give that a go and see if we can get a working 1.5.4 version. I guess I will begin developing this since it looks like the original has lost support. At the very least I can fork it and begin debugging.

Or a least if you can provide a patch... It could be great :D

quenyen commented on 2016-10-07 19:22

I was afraid you were going to say that....I agree I am getting the same thing when I try to run the program from the downloaded tar ball, or from the bzr most recent branch. I am thinking about forking it on my git hub account then try to fix the issue because I REALLY want/need this fixed.

I will look at this version as soon as possible.

Cannot get kazam 1.5.3 - which is a development version - to run using desktop file.

With command line :

[fred@fredo-arch ~]$ /usr/bin/kazam:32: PyGIWarning: Gtk was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.

rawval = parser.get(section, option, raw=True, fallback=rest)
TypeError: get() got an unexpected keyword argument 'raw'

Will try to get a bzr version running and usable asap.
