Are you trying to get a log from konsole or the application?

What happens if you just run:
Code:
application >> applog.txt
Also you may need to explain further what you mean by 'not working'? ie is there an error message?

This worked for me

Quote:
queenz@martin-lucid:~$ vlc >> file.txt
then you can go and open your file ~/file.txt and you will see the output of that program.

mine was..

Some applications print using stderr instead of stdout.
You could try either:
command 2>logfile
or
command >logfile 2>&1

The later will redirect stdout to a log file and redirect stderr to stdout.
