Missing Xorg.0.log With Sucessful xorg-xserver Install?

I recently installed Arch, xorg-xserver, and Gnome, but I noticed I don't have a Xorg.0.log, at least in the usual /var/log/ location. Another computer I installed Arch to a little bit ago however has the log. The main difference with this computer though is there is no DE installed, and I also recall installing some other xorg packages too (something for startx, a clock, and twm). It's also a x86 install, but I doubt that would matter.

I assume X is running without issue (since Gnome and apps run), but I'm curious to just check out the log for some things. Didn't notice anything on the wiki about a missing log either, and a quick online search didn't pull up anything widespread either. Anyone happen to have any ideas?

if you happened to be using gdm, it forwards xorg logs to systemd journal since 3.12 … alctl.html

If you're using xorg-server 1.16 from [testing] repo, have a look in ~/.local/share/xorg/ : … 4#p1438544
