Open Source alternative for Camtasia under Linux

I have been thinking of creating my own screencasts for a while. Today I stumbled upon a screenshot of Camtasia studio which looked very promising. Unfortunately they do not offer a linux version. So I googled around for an open source alternative. The one thing I found is the Xvidcap project. Drawback with the software is that has not been updated since October last year.

So I installed Xvidcap

yum -y install xvidcap.x86_64

You can record actions in a little window. Not as fancy as Camtasia but will do for the beginning.
