Hi all.

Under a previous version of ubuntu, I was able to capture sound by using as gnome tool, available in the menus to do so.

I've had lynx for a while. But I can't find that tool anymore.

Any idea how I can find it ?

Thanks.

Someone wrote a script called pacapture or parecord, I think. I'm not at my desktop right now, but I'll attach it when I am.

You can use Sound Recorder to capture sound with mic
Applications > Sound & Video > Sound Recorder

If you mean capture sound from an application, look at this:

(look at my post or simosx's youtube-link)

Hope that it helps

Sound Recorder is the tool that I'm looking for.

However, it is absent from the 'Sound & Video' menu in my system.

How can I find it?
If I don't have it, how do I install it?

It's part of the gnome-media package and should be installed by default in Ubuntu,
i.e. if you don't use Kubuntu, Xubuntu or any non-Gnome flavor of Ubuntu.

Start up Ubuntu Software Center (bottom entry in the Applications menu)
and do a search for "recorder".
Sound Recorder should be appear first on the list.
Install it if it's not already installed.
After installation it should appear in the Applications > Sound & Video menu.

You can also run Sound Recorder manually:
ALT+F2, then enter "gnome-sound-recorder"
