Print screen is above the insert key in the top row of the keyboard. You can open the screen shot tool from dash by starting to type the name. The screen shot tool has more options than capturing the whole screen.

Try recordmydesktop it is in the repos. That works ok if you have mic input for sound.

Ditto that. As usual, when I want to do something new, I consult the Ubuntu Forums, to see what experience others may have, what works and may work well or not. So RecordMyDesktop appeared exactly what I wanted. Flawless install from the software center, flawless execution. Don't know what the negative reviews are about, so just quashing all that to say it took me less than hour to find, review, install, learn, produce and do a first Youtube upload. Thanks to the developers who made it happen!:guitar:
