ffmpeg comes with one that I've used in the past with good results.
Been awhile though, and it's command line only.

Something like this:

ffmpeg -f x11grab outfile

but you would need to specify some codecs, bitrates and so on in there too.

Make sure you're using a _real_ ffmpeg from Debian Multimedia, and not
some crippled and out-of-date one like Ubuntu ships.
