If you're using journald, amend /etc/systemd/journald.conf to read:


If you're using rsyslog, add the following to /etc/rsyslog.d/tty12.conf

   *.=notice;*.=warn   /dev/tty12

Alternatively if you want colours, there are plenty of log colourisers
that you can run, directing their output to /dev/tty12
