I don't know the answer to your question, unfortunately, but I wanted
to recommend another tool as a workaround for now: Open Broadcaster
Software.  Install with 'guix package -i obs'.  I like it quite a bit.

I second David's suggestion. Even if it worked correctly, RecordMyDesktop is really unpleasant to use.

When you record something, it needs to "process" your content for a very long time and such process runs on a single core only

If that goes awry for any reason, you'll have to record again from scratch

Further, last time I used it, it brutally cut the audio of my footage for no apparent reason.

I'd recommend a tiny Gnome Shell extension called "EasyScreenCast" but I don't know how that would fare with GuixSD.

If this Open Broadcaster is already available, I'd give it a shot

I'm looking forward to watch your screencast !
