Hi!

I use recordMyDesktop:
* http://recordmydesktop.sourceforge.net/
* http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=recordmydesktop&searchon=names&suite=all&section=all

Commercial software - Demorecorder - http://demorecorder.com/ - might be solution. There is also 
test version available.

Even VLC is able to create screencasts:

Some other programs I suggest to test:
* http://live.gnome.org/Istanbul
* http://xvidcap.sourceforge.net/
* http://freshmeat.net/projects/xscript/
* https://devel.neopsis.com/projects/yukon/
* http://kevinbeason.com/scs/recordMovie/
