    Default Keyloggers

    Hey folks,

    I am not sure if this answers your question. The main tools and their managers are:

    kwallet -> kwalletmanager
    gnome-keyring -> seahorse

    The choice of the keychain is made by the application and not the system. So some of the programs use kwallet and other use gnome-keyring

    Ah thank you, but this is not what I meant.

    I meant a software which would log every key I type on my computer, which could help me keep track on potential ******** that I'd do.

    Like a simple software that would record, line by line, everything that is type/happens on the machine and create log files that would be easily accessible in case I *******up something.

    Hi
    In a terminal I'm assuming....? If so the history command will show everything, even repeat commands with a !nnn where nnn matches the history output. There are many options see the man page...

    If this is for a terminal session, use the "script" command to record a transcript of your terminal session. But that won't log what you type into a graphic window (other than the one running "script").

    Thanks folks.

    No, not only for terminal, but for everything I type. I work on an ERP.
    Thanks

    A very quick "Google" for "linux keylogging software" returns a large number of hits...

    This one looked quite interesting:

    I've never used, or had need to use, keylogging software, so that's not endorsement or recommendation ...
