ExtraMaus is a tool that shows an additional mouse cursor. What sounds silly first, is needed when you want to record your desktop with VLC, because VLC will not include your mouse cursor in the captured video. To VLC the mouse is hidden and the mouse cursor is invisible in the video. To solve this, ExtraMaus shows a mouse shaped window - that is seen and therefore captured by VLC - where your mouse is.

Download extramaus.c and compile it on your Linux distribution. You will need the X11 development packages installed. Compilation instructions are included in C file.

Start extramaus before you want to record a desktop video with VLC.
