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.


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

+ 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

 very nice

I like last version, and this more better. I like it very much! Triggers are very good idea, it will be fine if program have some default triggers.

I'm very glad you like it :)
I thought about default triggers but I didn't have an idea about what should be by default, so I decided to not do any.
I also plan to make 0.5 release be plugin based (every plugin will have it's own triggers group) and then I'll make two default plugins: Metalog' log file and Syslog' log file (then I'll try to make few default triggers such as for warnings and errors - maybe you have some ideas?). You will be also able to monitor more than one file, and not only files (also commands outputs and dcop commands).
How about that?

This is because you don't have automake-1.6 installed (you probably have the 1.9 version). I know that there is a problem with that on Suse. I'll try to disable automake version checking (hope it will work) when the official 0.4 version will be released.

Really nice app, I didn't need to have "tail -f ..." anymore!

The previous version was a little annoying but now with triggers tha's so perfect!

This software should definitely be part of KDE.

Thank you for your opinion. Comments like this are great motivation to maintain this project :)

About MM as a part of KDE... Well, I'm not sure if it's mature enough yet. Maybe in the future KDE developers will be interested of it. I want to make MM a tool similar to Mac's growl http://growl.info - it is an agent between user and applications. I want to put into MM a mechanism of dcop monitors - this should give you the ability to ask any KDE app for it's state. For example MM asks KMail if there are new mails every second (an popup message with button if there is some new stuff), or MM asks for RSS feeds or MM asks amaroK if there's new song... and so on and so on ;)

 Permissions error

I get an error about MM unable to open /var/log/messages because it has the permissions -rw-r-----.
I´m using SuSE 10.0, can I just change the permissions of is this file deleted and recreated often?

 Re: Permissions error

 by xis on: Nov 19 2005

I described this problem in the README file. I think that the best way to set the correct permission is to do:
rw-r----- root admin messages
I mean setting the file owner to 'root' and group to 'admin'. Then make trusted users members of this group (after that the users must logout + login again to work).

However, syslog resets file permission with every restart, so you have to make a way to change this situation. I am not sure but I think there aren't any configuration options responsible for this. In this case one of ways is to edit syslog's init script (/etc/init.d/syslog) and add the following lines to the end of start procedure's body:
chgrp admin /var/log/messages
chmod g+r /var/log/messages

Of course there are other ways such as adding these lines to cron or reconfigure you logrotate daemon (if you use any) and so on... I'm not a Syslog expert so I can't help you more.

Good luck

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
