This is a fairly difficult question for me to word, but I'll try my best.
When I launch an application from the terminal, say, Banshee as an example (so
banshee to launch from terminal), I can see all the logging of the application. But when I launch it from my GUI menu, I obviously don't see the same logging, as it doesn't launch it through a terminal emulator. Generally, the application redirects the logging to some log file. I have two questions about this:
- Does the application send all its logging to
stdoutfirst, which is then tee'd to the log file?
- Is there a way to access this
stdout"buffer"? (I am not sure if buffer is the right word, but it seems correct to me right now).
If this question isn't clear, please post in comments and I will do my best to fix it.
I run Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon, if that makes a difference.
