Recording your screen in Solaris works right out of the box. All you need to install is vncserver and vnc2swf.
A simple HOW TO about recording your screen in Solaris. 🙂
First you need to install Vncserver. Solaris by default doesn’t come with a VNC. The easiest way to install VNC is through pkg-get
root@home# pkg-get -i vncserver
That should install vncserver. 🙂
Next step it to install vnc2swf.
Download the C version of vnc2swf from http://www.unixuser.org/%7Eeuske/vnc2swf/index.html.
Extract the tar ball
The commands mentioned above will install vnc2swf . 🙂
Some of the issues i faced are 🙂
3. By default, the new user won’t have a .vnc folder. So start a vnc and kill that. Now you will have .vnc folder with a xstartup file. Modify the file so that gnome-session runs in the vnc instead of the default twm. The xstartup file should look like
/usr/openwin/bin/xsetroot -solid grey
/usr/openwin/bin/xterm -geometry 80×24+10+10 -ls -title “$VNCDESKTOP Desktop” &
And yeah, what i recorded can be viewed at http://download.freedesktop.org/ldtp/movies/screen2.html. Nice right 😉
