I was unable to make screencasts in wmii using Istanbul. So here's how I installed xvidcap. Unfortunately I cannot come up with a way for wget retrieval of the sourceball, so some manual labour is needed. Retrieve the sourceball and put it in /tmp. Then follow the instructions below. Also see the snippet for an alias for the make command first.
Note that I put the binaries in /usr/local/stow/xvidcap because the package comes from outside package management. I then use xstow to manage the symlinks in /usr/local/bin.
sudo apt-get install libxml-parser-perl libxmu-dev libglade2-dev libgtk2.0-dev cd /tmp tar zxvf xvidcap*.tar.gz cd xvidcap* ./configure --prefix /usr/local/stow/xvidcap make sudo make install cd /usr/local/stow sudo xstow xvidcap
To remove xvidcap follow these steps
cd /usr/local/xstow xstow -D xvidcap sudo rm -rf /usr/local/stow/xvidcap
