Thread: Log terminal in X Window System

  1. #1

    Question Log terminal in X Window System


    I am using OpenSuSe 11.3 and Xfce. When i start my Xfce session, in left down corner I can see useful terminal with logs. Propably it is /var/log/message or something. When I use Remote Administration (VNC) this terminal is missing.

    I have two questions.

    1. Where can I find configuration file or command which is starting this terminal ?
    2. How to start it under VNC session?

    I remember seeing that with 11.3, but it is not there with 11.4.

    I'm pretty sure that it is just what you can get by running "xconsole". It might not work via VNC.

    When I run "xconsole" in 11.4, I see that it is reading the pipe "/dev/xconsole". Moreover, I own that pipe. So something related to my login to the x-session is either creating that pipe or changing the ownership of that pipe to the logged in user. And that might not happen for remote logins.
