Re: Windows Guest

Thank you for your reply I belive I have done what you suggested with the exception 'allow it 256mb VRAM' I cannot see how this is done. Maybe I should add that I have not had any problems running other VM's
hope this is the info you requested
thanks

Re: Red Spot

Thanks for the suggestion Ive looked everywhere even in gnome keyboard shortcuts all point to CTRL ALT SHIFT R being the shortcut to both start and stop screen recording but that combination doesn't work for me maybe the is the term key 'binding' got altered some how.

Re: Red Spot

Ive found one thing that starts the recording if I highlight a number of lets say emails by holding down the shift key and dragging the mouse the recording starts to stop it just press the shift key :D So what's causing this action and how to disable it or even uninstall the software responsible !

Re: Red Spot

Think I may have found the cause the last time the red stop came on was when I did the two above screen shots and the file shows me compiling my previous file. The screen shot were done with flameshot so it looks like that the culprit however I can't make it happen :?

Re: Red Spot

That's even more intriguing I don't have a cat :lol: All of the files appear to be video's of some sort and when I tried to open one (a) up popped the red spot and (b) error message pop-up so now we know what happening just need to find the cause !
