Hello, I've heard some people having issues with Simple Screen Recorder. In this article, I'll guide you on fixing this issue.

Your need to Configure Xorg as the default GNOME session.

On your terminal open your custom.conf by typing this command:

sudo nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and uncomment

WaylandEnable=false
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If it's commented but must be set to

false
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then, on the [daemon] section just under WaylandEnable=false add this line:

DefaultSession=gnome-xorg.desktop
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and save the file. Then restart your system and try running your Screen Recorder program again.

Congratulations!

However, if nano command is not working please try installing it by running the command:

sudo dnf install nano
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

or

sudo apt-get install nano
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Whichever one works for you. Thanks a lot for your time.
