KmTail is a KDE4 version of the venerable Ktail program. It has pretty much the same features and allows you to monitor various log files. Note that most files in /var/log are only root-readable so you will have to start KmTail with kdesu or, much better, configure syslog-ng to use more convenient permissions.

Log files are added via the File menu as usual or may be dragged from a file manager. Tabs may be reordered by dragging them around.

KmTail 1.0 has dropped support for named pipes (FIFOs) because their behaviour is too unreliable. If you want to expose a syslog message's priority and facility for automatic highlighting by KmTail, you need to make some simple changes to
/etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf (see the README).

Since KmTail 0.9 date/time extraction is possible to convert non-standard log files into the syslog format, increasing legibility. Presets are provided for many common log file formats and you may also specify your own. What's This popups provide some guidance on regexps and templates. It is also possible to specify the number of columns (fields) the message is parsed into, which will also increase legibility for certain logs.
