1 Wayland logs

To get the logs of the wayland protocol messages, set this environment variable:

 export WAYLAND_DEBUG=1

2 Saving Weston logs in a file

Standard Weston logs are available in the /home/weston/weston.log file when Weston is started with the "weston user" using the systemd service.

 cat /home/weston/weston.log

3 Displaying Weston logs on a console

Start Weston with the following command:

 weston --tty=1 &

All Weston logs are then displayed on the console.
