GNOME Logs application cannot see any logs or crashing


Problem

GNOME Logs does not display anything, or it doesn't start at all (running gnome-logs from terminal shows segfault).

Cause

Probably your user does not have permissions to read journal logs..

Solution

Add your user to the systemd-journal group:

sudo usermod -aG systemd-journal USERNAME

where USERNAME is your username, you can find it by running

whoami.
