Ubuntu – Ubuntu freezes. Which logs can I check out


So my computer has lately started freezing completely when I run some programs that, in the past, would work great.

What I am unsure about however, is what logs that are available to me that could help me track down the issue after a reboot?


Best Answer



If you are running gnome, then you can check the logs using "gnome-system-log" tool, type


in the run dialog.

and check the syslog in the left hand side.

if you want to check the log using terminal,

then do,

tail -f /var/log/syslog
