A graphical interface for watching log files
All the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open system-logviewer
2. Scroll down to the bottom of the list to see the last entry.
3. System generates a message. View window goes to the top of
User is looking at the first item in the list.
It would be nice if the list stayed on the last item or went to the
new item. Maybe a user option is needed to scroll list or not scroll
list. If one is working on a busy machine, it is almost impossible
to look at anything in the middle of the list because it keeps going
to the top of the list and then you have to refind your position.
I like the utility a lot. I used to have several log files open at
once in multiple editors and they didn't update while you were
watching them. system-logviewer is much, much nicer.
I'd also like a button to clear the log file, but I guess I can do
