I was looking around for some type of educational/presentation tool to help in screen recordings for linux and can’t really find one. So, I’m interested in creating an Epic Pen/PointerFocus clone for linux using GTK. My question is the input functionality needed to make these applications successful able to work in Wayland, for example, it will capture the keyboard presses (Copy/Paste) and display keyboard combination visually to the screen to make screen recordings easier to understand. Is this type of input capture capable in Wayland?
You can only “capture” input delivered to windows you own. If you want to show all input delivered elsewhere, you will have to ask the compositor—though there is no shared API to do that.
