    check it out and share it with your friends =)

    i like to see a fortune when i open a new terminal... slackware style...

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install fortune
    Code:
    cat >> $HOME/.bashrc << "EOF"
    /usr/games/fortune
    EOF
    Sign here without admitting guilt.
    mkultra [ ~ ]$

    you will need to install the fortune package and cookies package from the repository in synaptic.

    Re: fortune

    I had at least 10 minutes of laughing by using the -o option with fortune, but be warned:

    Code:
         -o    Choose only from potentially offensive aphorisms.  Please, please,
               please request a potentially offensive fortune if and only if you
               believe, deep down in your heart, that you are willing to be
               offended.  (And that if you are, you'll just quit using -o rather
               than give us grief about it, okay?)
    Have fun .
    You think that's air you're breathing now?
