# Revision history [back]

As Ahmad already commented, the logs go to the systemd journal. In order to read them, first find out the systemd unit that belongs to your session (which is a systemd unit of type "scope"). Then use that session as unit for journalctl, like this:

$systemctl list-units -t scope UNIT LOAD ACTIVE SUB DESCRIPTION session-5.scope loaded active running Session 5 of user martin [...]$ journalctl -b -u session-5.scope


You could create a shortcut for this in bash, like this:

alias xsession-errors='journalctl -b -u $(systemctl -t scope | awk "/user$USER\$/ { print \$1; }")'


With this alias, you can view your logs simply by typing xsession-errors.
