My Ubuntu 10.10 sometimes totally freezes. I suppose that it is somehow related to my graphic card and would like to check Xserver log. Where is this file located ?


Where most of log files located: /var/log/

Log filename: Xorg.0.log Xorg.1.log etc...


You can check out the log files:

Click on

System menu > Choose Administration > System Log


Applications > System Tool > Log File Viewer


/var/log/ as mentioned, or ~/.local/share/xorg/:

If a problem occurs, view the log stored in either /var/log/ or, for the rootless X default since v1.16, in ~/.local/share/xorg/.
