Ubuntu – How to install Kazam 1.5.3


Months ago, I used to install Kazam 1.5.3 using these commands :

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kazam-team/unstable-series
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install kazam python3-cairo python3-xlib

Them main reason I want Kazam 1.5.3 exactly is because it comes with a webcam option.

But now, when I execute the previous commands, it only installs the previous version (Kazam 1.4), which doesn't come with a webcam option.

Is there a way to get the latest version?

Kazam is available in the official Ubuntu repositories, but it's an old version (1.4) and ppa:kazam-team/unstable-series has not been updated for 16.04 (and does not include debian patches).

You can install Kazam 1.5.4 from my own ppa (it provides the debian packages up to 20.04):

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:sylvain-pineau/kazam
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kazam
