Description:

This simple program watches the syslog's or metalog's log file and pops up the window whenever the new message comes. You can specify the file to watch and a regular expression for parsing the log line, so you can watch other than log files too.

Now you can use themes in your popups. See MetaMonitor's homepage for the Themes Howto, a document describing how to create your own themes. Please send me your themes or publish them on KDE Look (in the 'Other theme/style' category).

Thanks to Konstantin Sobolev and his KLogView for inspiration and a few lines of code ;)

See MetaMonitor's homepage for more information.

See README file for source installation instructions.




Changelog:

0.4.5a:
+ Added Debian "unstable" package (for KDE 3.4.3) (Jérôme Viscaino)

0.4.5:
+ Added spanish translation (Alejandro Araiza Alvarado)
* Updated other translations files
+ Added themes support (can set the skin, text colors and body layout with the qt richtext)
* Command's button -> Command's anchor
* Complete rebuild of the configuration window
* Fixed popup's positioning. Now it's sensitive on the tray's position and doesn't hide kicker
* Fixed keyboard shortcuts in the advanced config (thanks Florian)
* Changed the text in About-Window to a little less stupid ;)
+ Added ability to clear the log window
* Updated AUTHORS file

 Excellent

Excellent app. I finally compiled this second release (had trouble with the first). I've put a script in ~/.kde/Autostart/ that launches MetaMonitor whenever I enter KDE. What new features do you plan?

I'm glad you like it :)
Well, first of all I try to group multiple messages into single popup (almost already done, needs some testing and I'll publish it). Then I'll maybe add an ability to choose custom icons for every sender.
What next? I don't know, maybe I'll think something out or maybe you will have some requests.
My free week is goin' to the end, so I don't know about my time to code ;)

Hi, sorry I got this error:

$ make -f admin/Makefile.common

*** YOU'RE USING automake (GNU automake) 1.9.5.
*** KDE requires automake 1.6
make: *** [cvs] Error 1

On a Slackware 10.2

Some idea?

thanks

bye

Hi,
Yes it's a known or even 'popular' problem ;)
Automake 1.9 is incompatible with 1.6 version. You can install another automake package like 1.6 or 1.7 (should be no conflict if you INSTALL it, not UPGRADE, because these packages can be installed together).
If it is a problem for you, then you can download RPM package and convert it into tgz package using rpm2tgz tool.
Good luck!

I like this program! Thanks for the ebuild, compiled without any issues. Nice to see it also works with syslog-ng, which I'm currently still using.

Hi,
Good to know that it works with syslog-ng. I don't have syslog (just metalog), and I had to test my RegExp on some old data. I think that the way MetaMonitor parses the syslog's log line is still not perfect (the annoying hostname is still in the sender's name and should be there only if there's no sender).
I think metalog's logs is easier to handle and much more 'clean'.

 Ebuild?

Has anyone made a Gentoo ebuild for this app?

If not, maybe I'll create one in my spare time.


It is not the size of the hammer that counts. It's how you wield it.

Hi,
Check out the second download link. Is that what you mean? ;)
It's not a perfect ebuild, but should work.

 great app

 
 by MMax on: Nov 1 2005

I like it very much.

But there is a problem. I'm using vmware and it is probing modules and using kernel alot. Therefore there are many messages shown, and it covers my screen.

Is there a way to prevent this?

I thought of some kind of blocker if there come to many messages in short time and show every fifth with a note or something similar.

Hi,
Yes, I know that some messages (event if the're groupped) can be very annoying :(

Currently I'm working on triggers mechanism, so you'll be able to set some actions for various types of messages (including popup blocking).

Until I'll release the new version of MetaMonitor you can:
a) make popup's lifetime a bit shorter (this will make popups dissapear faster)
or
b) disable popups groupping option
or
c) pause popups for the time you use vmware (just right click on the MM icon and choose 'Pause popups' option)

... and wait for 0.4 :)


My plan for triggers in 0.4 looks like this:
You will be able to define when the trigger should be launched (for example, when the sender's name contains 'su' and/or the message's text contains 'fail') and what action should be performed. You can choose one (or more) action:
- popup's block (do not show popup)
- set popup's font
- set popup's color (font and background)
- set popup's icon
- set popup's lifetime
- play sound
- run command (for example a script which sends mail or something)
I think that this mechanism and dcop's power would make MM a very useful app (notifications from kget about finished downloads, messages from akregator about new RSS feeds and so on). But, so far, that's only a plan. We'll see if it's possible to implement by me :)

Regards

Well, it's already there :)
Just click on the message's icon or title. Yes, it's annoing that clicking on the message's _text_ doesn't make it disappear. I'll try to fix it in the next minor release.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
