The following fixes the microphone not working:

sudo sed "s/time.clock()/time.perf_counter()/g" -i /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/kazam/pulseaudio/pulseaudio.py

See: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1237571/kazam-no-sound-and-no-rectangular-red-border-during-screencast-in-ubuntu-20-04

Can you guys get the microphone to work on your systems? Microphone unknown in preferences and in terminal

I'm getting this error too.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/divy/.cache/yay/kazam/src/kazam-1.4.5/setup.py", line 8, in <module>
    from DistUtilsExtra.command import *
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'DistUtilsExtra'

Edit:

Turns out pyenv's python installation was being used while build.

Solved it by running pyenv global system

@heavysink I think putting /usr/bin/python3 instead of python3 in package command would solve it.

If input sound from Speakers & Microphone not detected, you can solve with this: https://askubuntu.com/a/1234330/777616 It just needs to replace /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/kazam/pulseaudio/pulseaudio.py with the fixed one https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hzbd/kazam/aca8dd4e2eb9caf676682933a06bc997decd5804/kazam/pulseaudio/pulseaudio.py

@coxackie I adopted this package and it works now. Please check.

@yuricoles @spsf64: indeed, adding python-distutils-extra as a dependency builds the package, but when I run I get

WARNING Kazam - Failed to correctly detect operating system.

ValueError: Namespace Keybinder not available

Installing libkeybinder3 (supposed to be optional dependency) did the trick.

@yurikoles, error during build; adding "python-distutils-extra" as makedepends seems to work fine

i get this error when starting kazam after installing it /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. from gi.repository import Gtk WARNING Kazam - Failed to correctly detect operating system.

I used a hack to fix the package, see https://github.com/hzbd/kazam/issues/20#issuecomment-449975842

@51v4n is unfortunately correct that the package has been abandoned. A much better fix has not been merged by upstream. There's also issue #11, very annoying as I have a 4k display, to contend with.

Would anyone be upset if I pointed this package at my own fork? I would only do so if I manage to fix #11.
