xconsole - monitor system console messages with X
xconsole [-toolkitoption ...] [-file file-name] [-notify] [-stripNonprint] [-daemon] [-verbose] [-exitOnFail]
The xconsole program displays messages which are usually sent to /dev/console.
Xconsole accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options along with the additional options listed below:
This program uses the Athena Text widget, look in the Athena Widget Set documentation for controlling it.
Xconsole otherwise accepts resources of the same names as the command-line options (without the leading dash). "file" is a string type, "saveLines" an integer, and the remaining options are booleans.
In order to specify resources, it is useful to know the hierarchy of the widgets which compose xconsole. In the notation below, indentation indicates hierarchical structure. The widget class name is given first, followed by the widget instance name.
