    Talking Ubuntu Logo in color ASCII art

    Original thread by lemix (2006) - Ubuntu Ascii Logo Program
    - A program written in C to create the Ubuntu logo
    2nd thread by coralsaw (2007) - Ubuntu Logo in color ASCII art
    - An motd file that could be output to the screen

    Here is the exact same look to the original logo output from the above posts but using Bash shell script...which could be incorporated into a dynamic motd banner at login.

    Color code chart has been included so you can easily swap out the 3 colors with any other colors you want.

    logo-color.sh
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    ## Black        0;30     Dark Gray     1;30
    ## Red          0;31     Light Red     1;31
    ## Green        0;32     Light Green   1;32
    ## Brown/Orange 0;33     Yellow        1;33
    ## Blue         0;34     Light Blue    1;34
    ## Purple       0;35     Light Purple  1;35
    ## Cyan         0;36     Light Cyan    1;36
    ## Light Gray   0;37     White         1;37
    
    color1='\033[1;31m'  # light red
    color2='\033[1;35m'  # light purple
    color3='\033[1;33m'  # light yellow
    nocolor='\033[0m'    # no color
    
    printf "               ${color1}.-.${nocolor}\n"
    printf "         ${color2}.-'\`\`${color1}(   )${nocolor}\n"
    printf "      ${color3},\`\\ ${color2}\\    ${color1}\`-\`${color2}.${nocolor}\n"
    printf "     ${color3}/   \\ ${color2}'\`\`-.   \`   ${color3}`lsb_release -s -d`${nocolor}\n"
    printf "   ${color2}.-.  ${color3},       ${color2}\`___:  ${nocolor}`uname -srmo`${nocolor}\n"

    printf "               ${color3}\`-\`${nocolor}\n"
    Example output in color from an Ubuntu server:


    logo-nocolor.sh
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    printf "               .-.\n"

    printf "  (   ) :        ___   `date`\n"

    This is fantastic! (I'm easily amused.)

    Thank you for this.

    LoL, so am I ! ! ! !

    I wanted an ASCII art logo for Ubuntu for my SSH login banners and this was the best-looking one I could find. Couldn't find anything smaller that captured the right "feel" but this works so I stopped looking and did the conversion.

    Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS

    EDIT: For those that want to know how to use this in your SSH login in version 16.04, here's how:

    #1 - Disable the header and help text sections of the current process by removing the execute permission.
    Code:
    sudo chmod 644 /etc/update-motd.d/00-header
    sudo chmod 644 /etc/update-motd.d/10-help-text
    #2 - Create a new script that will execute before the remaining scripts (updates available, reboot required, etc.)
    Code:
    sudo touch /etc/update-motd.d/01-custom-logo
    sudo chmod 755 /etc/update-motd.d/01-custom-logo
    sudo chown root:root /etc/update-motd.d/01-custom-logo
    #3 - Now edit the 01-custom-logo file and copy/paste one of the above examples.

    #4 - Make sure it runs how you would expect by executing it
    Code:
    /etc/update-motd.d/01-custom-logo
    #5 - Within 10 minutes your SSH login will display your crispy-new ASCII art

    Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS

    For those that want to know how to use this in your SSH login for version 18.04, here's how:

    #1 - Disable the header and help text sections of the current process by removing the execute permission.

    Code:
    sudo chmod 644 /etc/update-motd.d/00-header
    sudo chmod 644 /etc/update-motd.d/10-help-text
    sudo chmod 644 /etc/update-motd.d/50-landscape-sysinfo
    sudo chmod 644 /etc/update-motd.d/50-motd-news
    sudo chmod 644 /etc/update-motd.d/80-livepatch
    #2 - Create a new script that will execute before the remaining scripts (updates available, reboot required, etc.)

    Code:
    sudo touch /etc/update-motd.d/01-custom-logo
    sudo chmod 755 /etc/update-motd.d/01-custom-logo
    sudo chown root:root /etc/update-motd.d/01-custom-logo
    #3 - Now edit the 01-custom-logo file and copy/paste one of the above examples.

    NOTE: If you want the Internal IP, the output format changed a bit in 18.04. Find this line:
    Code:
    printf "     ${color3}\\   / ${color1},..-\`   ,${nocolor}   Internal IP: `/sbin/ifconfig ens32 | /bin/grep "inet addr" | /usr/bin/cut -d ":" -f 2 | /usr/bin/cut -d " " -f 1`\n"
    and change it to:
    Code:
    printf "     ${color3}\\   / ${color1},..-\`   ,${nocolor}   Internal IP: `/sbin/ifconfig ens32 | /bin/grep "inet " | /usr/bin/cut -d ":" -f 2 | /usr/bin/cut -d " " -f 10`\n"
    Assuming your NIC is "ens32" but if not, make sure you change it to your NIC name so it can find it.

    #4 - Make sure it runs how you would expect by executing it

    Code:
    /etc/update-motd.d/01-custom-logo
    #5 - Within 10 minutes your SSH login will display your crispy-new ASCII art

    Whoops, I've updated the posts to include them.

    I've also created a clone of this thread on my forums so it exists in more places than one.
