Systray File Watcher (for Linux)
This application will watch for updates occurring to a file, and display a notification in your system tray when updates are taking place.
This is particularly helpful for error or synchronization logs.
On Ubuntu, you can install pygtk by running
sudo apt-get install python-gtk2.
sudo python setup.py install.
If the application immediately closes with the message "You must log-out and log-in again for your system tray icon to appear.", log-out and log-back in again; a system settings change was required.
