Re: Newbie questions

Hey Pete,

Yes, that sends stdout and errout to the same file. If you also want to watch it while it runs, you can open a second terminal window and use `tail -f /path/to/some/file`.

You can access gpilots options by running `gpilotd-control-applet`, it should be in your path.

That sends stdout of gpilotd to the file (but it's not on the screen, is it?) and sends errout (2) to the same place as stdout (1)

How does one do that? Running gpilotd in terminal doesn't give me a window with options.
