Summary0006437: Problem in Kazam screen recorder.

Whenever I want to screen record through Kazam, the audio is not recorded. Whenever I go to the File option, click on Preferences. Under General tab, the Speakers option is disabled and the Microphone option is set to unknown.
If, I click on the Microphone, it only shows "unknown".
I have checked the PulseAudio Volume Control, from there nothing I have found out.

Currently I'm using kali 2020.2. But this issue I have faced in 2020.1 also.

Steps To Reproduce

You can record any video through kazam, you will find the issue after you play the video.

Hi sbrun,

The patch is working fine. I was having trouble in the patch process (as it was throwing an error). it was resolved by opening the new terminal again.

NOTE: For those who don't know how to patch the file.
1) After downloading the file.
2) $ cd /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/kazam/ (this is the location where kazam was installed in my drive.)
3) $ sudo patch < (path_of_the_patch_file)/kazam_pulse_audio_python_3_8.patch
