• Gnome Logs Alternative.



    Does anybody know of a good alternative to Gnome Logs. When my old computer was acting up i relied on the program to check my system and google the info to see if others had problems with it. Gnome Logs could be buggy and slow though. i would like something lighter.

    Of course I could use the reporting tool built into System76/POP!_OS computers but it produces very big files.

    Of course I could rely on the command line and use something like:

    tail -n 100 /var/log/syslog

    but I would prefer a GUi approach. Has anyone tried Stacer?

      I tried Stacer a while back, but not for log reading, so I cannot offer an opinion on that.

      I use KSystemLog personally. It’s the KDE equivalent of the GNOME reader, as far as I can tell. It is part of the KDE Plasma desktop.

      Nearly every GNOME bit has a KDE equivalent (including the desktop environment itself), and I usually prefer the KDE versions (hence my use of KDE!), but there are some GNOME tools I prefer, and they work fine. I use the GNOME user manager, GNOME disks, and sometimes GpartEd.

      Because so many applications have GTK+ or Qt dependencies, all of the desktops I know of are bilingual “out of the box,” able to run and use either type of UI toolkit with no issues. I would think you would be able to run KSystemLog (or just try it out and see if you like it) without too many KDE dependencies.
