    I dont see the start recording button anywhere. Can you point it out to me from a screenshot of your page? Also is there a way to pause the 2 day activation period since I will not be using my laptop while traveling?

      You must run this command from the folder with integration module and prefix it with ./ So: ./
      Another way to run this file is open terminal window and drag this file from the integration module folder to that terminal window.
