Projects / Paralogger


Paralogger is a script to "tail" the system logs in borderless transparent Eterm(s). Its purpose is to make setting up a "root tail" an easy set and forget. Paralogger makes the placement of the terminals (geometry) more friendly for the user by detecting the screen resolution and calculating the geometry of the terminals automatically. It can also load or save a configuration file.

            Release Notes: It now makes use of the -q option if used with the latest CVS version of Eterm 0.9.1 so that the Eterm(s) refuses to take keyboard input.

            There was a little typo in 0.91 that would render it useless for use with Eterm 0.9. This has been fixed.
