This is my second omission/mistake in one and same thread in one and same day :unamused:

journal -b -o | curl -F 'f:1=<-'
bash: journal: command not found

Of course ‘o’ shoul be ‘0’ and nothing else!

ps - I better get some time offline :thinking:

Its ok bro i appreciate your help .so i need to copy
journal -b -0 | curl -F ‘f:1=<-’
bash: journal: Do i copy and paste everything including command not found ?```

I guess this is one of those cases:

Third time’s a charm


journal -b -o | curl -F ‘f:1=<-’ :x:

journalctl -b -0 | curl -F ‘f:1=<-’ :white_check_mark:

Ok so not sure why this is so confusing for you. @pebcak has been asking you to provide some very simple information here. You really need to do more research on an arch linux system.

Try this:
Open the welcome application…

Click the button for "logs for troubleshooting…

ONLY select the first entry as in the picture and hit OK…
This will save a file in your home directory with the log as in the picture…

Open the log by double clicking it. Then copy and paste the output from the text editor that opens and post it here.
It should look like this:

my output


Body is limited to 90000 characters; you entered 448998. i removed all the other checks .What do you suggest please .I was only following instructions from Pebcak,as you can see in the messages he made several errors.Many thanks for your help.

How about 4th time’s the charm? The command previously posted had tick marks instead of single quote marks. Run this:

journalctl -b -0 | curl -F 'f:1=<-'

When it finishes running, the terminal will display a link that you can post here.
