Looking for a pre-installed app in cinnamon (SOLVED)

Post by Prsman » Thu Dec 14, 2017 8:25 pm

Hi everyone. I was running the cinnamon desktop but for various reasons I am now running xfce. In the menu there is an app that lets you see the auth.log, syslog and xorg.conf in the app. I cant remember what it is called. It is not gnome-logs. Can some please tell the name. I want to install it in my desktop. Thanks.

gnome-system-log
But xorg.conf is by default not on the list of files which gnome-system-log will display, because it is not a logfile.
Yet, as it is a pure text file (configuration file), it would be possible to navigate xorg.xonf and add it to the list of files which gnome-system-log displays on your system.
Or do you actually mean the logfile Xorg.0.log, not xorg.conf?

Thanks karichen. Thats the app I want. And you are right, its Xorg.0.log, not Xorg.conf :D
