Re: See evey terminal command passed by the GUI

said by Rexter:

Yea, basically. Launchers, for example pass commands. When I click restart, or shutdown, a command is passed. My understanding is on Linux system most gui items pass commands. I just want them to log, and have then scroll.

Well, there's your problem. Your understanding is wrong.

Everything a command line application does is accomplished via system calls. Those same system calls are also used by GUI apps. Want to rm files? call unlink() in your native gui or command line app.

You could trace all syscalls, but that would get ugly fast.

Ugly is good. That sounds like what I want.

Yea, what Brano is describing sounds like what I want, but I'd like it to be scrolling in a semi-transparent windows on the desktop. I was wondering if Conky might be able to do that.

lol, typical RTFM linux guy. I'll spend some more time with my buddy Google.

As of now, I haven't found the log info I'm looking for, to even import into Conky, so I'm not quite there yet.

What exactly are you looking for? Different programs log to different log files (most of the log files are in /var/log though).

I am sorry wtf did you wanted? All I said was that yest it can be done...
Give me some time to get out from work and I can assist but as it's been replayed here you need to cat the messages file and outputted to conky.
