Hey guys,

I've set up gnome 3 light and conky. All is working great, but I wanted to tail /var/log/messages to conky.
Since my normal user doesn't have read rights on ./var/log/messages, I setup sudo so it doesn't need the password and added sudo tail /var/log/messages.

This works, but now the logs are flooded with "sudo session openend for ... by ..."
Anyone have any other ideas on how to work around this?

Have your conky script filter out lines starting with "sudo session openend for"?
