How to use xconsole?

I can't figure out how to see console messages while I'm using X (I'm
using Gnome, if it matters).  I do recall that it was straightforward
on earlier releases of Debian, but I can't recall how it was done.

Now if I start xconsole after logging in, it displays an error "Can't
open console".  I tried putting `xconsole &' at the end of
/etc/gdm/Init/Default, but that only displayed a blank console while
the login: prompt was visible.

I imagine I'm missing something obvious ... any ideas?
