    Firestarter Log Problem on 12.04 LTS

    Hello, when i launch firestarter i get this error:

    Firestarter-WARNING **: Log file not found or access denied.
    Firewall log monitoring disabled.

    I followed this instructions:

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/52817...ration-program

    editing (with "root" account) the file /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf

    from

    #*.=info;*.=notice;*.=warn;\
    # auth,authpriv.none;\
    # cron,daemon.none;\
    # mail,news.none -/var/log/messages

    to

    *.=info;*.=notice;*.=warn;\
    auth,authpriv.none;\
    cron,daemon.none;\
    mail,news.none -/var/log/messages

    Then i restarted rsyslog and also rebooted but i get the same message...

    Can someone help me?

    yes dont use firestarter, its an out of date and often buggy package.

    IPTables is the built in firewall in Linux and most users use UFW or GUFW to manage it.

    See here Dangertux firewall guide in Ubuntu

    If you decide to go down this route then remove firestarter completely as it conflicts.

    Peace

    Re: Firestarter Log Problem on 12.04 LTS

    I solved the problem. Before doing that steps i mentioned first, i created a dir:

    sudo su
    cd /var/log/
    mkdir messages

    Well, i thought that the log file has to be saved in the messages directory, but it was wrong, messages is the name of the log file.

    Removing the directory i solved the problem:

    rmdir messages
    service rsyslog restart

    Ok.
    Now I don't get more any error messages, but my events list is empty.
    What now?
