Simple screen recorder cannot record

[ALSAInput::Init] Error: Can’t open PCM device!
[PageRecord::StartInput] Error: Something went wrong during initialization. there is an error while recording video + audio in simple screen recorder, I’m using gnome.

  1. Check Audio Device Permissions: Make sure your user account has permissions to access the audio devices. Sometimes this issue arises due to permission problems.
  2. Restart ALSA Service: Try restarting the ALSA service to see if it resolves the issue. You can do this by running the following command in the terminal:
sudo alsa force-reload
  1. Verify ALSA Configuration: Check the ALSA configuration to ensure it’s correctly set up. You can do this by examining the contents of /etc/asound.conf or any other configuration files in /etc/asound.conf.d/.
  2. Check Audio Device: Make sure your audio input device (microphone) is properly connected and recognized by ALSA. You can use the arecord -l command to list available recording devices.

i hope By going through these steps, you should be able to diagnose and potentially resolve the issue with recording audio using Simple Screen Recorder in a GNOME environment.
