psacct seems a little heavy. I'm not after forensic analysis and accounting.
Suppose in a command line only session (no desktop, no X, just me and TTY1 and bash) I did something like this:
grep -i 'nouveau' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
The command produced a few interesting lines of output, but then I made some configuration changes and rebooted to try something else. Afterward I realize that it would have been nice to refer back to some of those lines as they were before the configuration changes.
sudo find / -name 'nvidia*' -print -delete
The name of each file is printed, and then it is deleted without prompting. After the process completes I realize that 50 or more filenames scrolled off screen and I can't scroll back to read the names of them all.
In Konsole I have tons of scrollback and I can easily copy and paste with my mouse. Not so with the TTY without X.
