Re: Granite Logger



In that case, why should logger.notification() exist when I should just be
able to use g_message()?

But actually, message(), logger.notification(), and debug() do *not* print
to terminal. I tested all of the logging convenience functions I could find
and threw this into my code:

        var logger = new Granite.Services.Logger ();

Which when run results in:

aroman@crackedpipes:~/elementary/switchboard/build$ ./switchboard
[L_WARN 12:38:53.392668] [switchboard-app:354] warning();
[L_FATAL 12:38:53.392936] [switchboard-app:356] crticial();
[L_FATAL 12:38:53.393048] Switchboard will not function properly.
aroman@crackedpipes:~/elementary/switchboard/build$ ^C

So only 2 of the 5 logging functions, including the one in Logger itself,
didn't work.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?
