    Could not launch 'Desktop recorder'

    I can't start RecordMyDesktop. The error message is:

    "Could not launch 'Desktop recorder'
    Failed to execute child process "gtk-recordMyDesktop" (No such file or directory)"

    The Applications menu entry (in Gnome fallback mode, Precise) has an entry with the command gtk-recordMyDesktop, which gives that error message. A terminal command '/usr/bin/gtk-recordMyDesktop' gives the message "No such file or directory". There is a Python script /usr/bin/gtk-recordMyDesktop on the computer. I just uninstalled and reinstalled this program with the Ubuntu Software Center.

    What's wrong? Why can't I get this program to work? It has worked in the past.

    here the name is gtk-recordmydesktop

    Code:
    $ ls /usr/bin |grep recordmy
    gtk-recordmydesktop
    recordmydesktop
    
    $ file /usr/bin/gtk-recordmydesktop
    /usr/bin/gtk-recordmydesktop: a /usr/bin/python script, ASCII text executable

    That was ridiculously simple. Thanks. The computer is littered with both spellings, and I didn't notice the misspelled command.
