Recently i was trying out root-tail, and after playing around with it for a while, i was able to get it to work somewhat. the only problem is the following:
I run Ubuntu with Gnome 2.8,and i added the root-tail command to my start-up programs. Now what happens is that when i log in, i can see the root window with the var/logs/messages, but once the desktop has finished loading, my background completely hides the logs. So basically what i need to know is how i can get the logs on my desktop, preferably on a transparent terminal.
has anyone had experience with this and been able to get around it?
