Have you tried looking in the /var/log directory? :-)

 From command line in terminal,

cd /var/log

or in mc (Midnight Commander) select /var/log

or same in nautilus :-) .

Perhaps yo have zapped the /var/log directory by some means and 
therefore cannot find it? As in having some cron setting which wipes 
this directory off the face of the earth?
