Works just fine. Does audio - but I suspect just Desktop sounds (teeraw
might work).  If I remember correctly you need to set the name of the
saved file and it's location before starting the recording. Output is ogg.

Skreener - takes a series of screen scrapes for low-resource screen
recordings. Output is images. Doesn't do simultaneous audio(, but
Audacity does).
