journalwatch is a tool which can find error messages in the systemd journal.
It is similiar to tools like

patterns to match all log lines which are not interesting, and then prints all
log lines not matching those patterns (or sends them by mail).
When you start it the first time, it'll write the default pattern and config to
`$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/.config/journalwatch` (`$XDG_CONFIG_HOME` is your home if
unset). Details on how to configure journalwatch are available in these files.
