Default system log viewer

Hi,

I'm looking for a system log viewer. Seems that the only option is the KDE
based ksystemlog. I don't use KDE and prefer not to use those KDE based
apps that tightly coupled with KDE.

What alternatives do I have?

thanks

Default System log viewer

Hello,

Where did the system log viewer go in 10.04, I
can't find it anywhere?


Also, I have forgotten the name of the program
that takes care of scheduling tasks in Linux, and
I have a daily backup of my home folder going on
to another partition which is getting full, and
need to stop it.


Could someone please remind me what the name of
the scheduling daemon in Linux is?


I was going to look in the system logs, as it's
name is in there constantly, but I can't find the
damn viewer anywhere???


Later, Ray Parrish

You're either thinking of atd, cron or anacron as far as scheduling.
With the log viewer, it's under System > Administration. It disappeared
on me one time, but after a log out and back in it was back. Don't know
how or why, but the logs appeared normal.

I found cron by looking in my
LinuxdpkgSoftwareReport programs report under the
Admin software section, and have been able to
modify the crontab to backup a smaller portion of
my folders instead of the entire home folder,
concentrating now on my web site, and recordings
folders instead.


I am still curious as to where the System Log
Viewer went, as it is no longer on the menu.

Perhaps it has been disabled somehow. Right click the top panel in
the menu area and select System Administration in the left pane. In
the right pane make sure Log File Viewer is selected. If it is not
there at all then click New Item and add a new one with the command
gnome-system-log

Something wrong with "less /var/log/syslog" in a terminal?
