hello there, As kazam is one of most up voted screen cast recorder,I am done with installing it with all the needed dependencies.But unfortunately I have not been successful in launching the app.The app is installed in */usr/bin/kazam*. when I try to invoke it from application launcher it doesnt execute.however I have got the traceback when launching it from terminal window.

~rihnapstor:- /usr/bin/kazam
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/kazam", line 32, in <module>
from gi.repository import Gtk
ImportError: No module named 'gi'

If you are using GNOME, have you tried the built in screen recorder? Or the others that are available in the Fedora repos?

I think that you need to install the following package:

# yum install python3-gobject

because the program kazam uses Python 3, but I'm not sure, so try this and tell me if you succeeded :)
