How to remove silly quotes from terminal

Postby vinoman on Sun Jul 12, 2009 11:31 am

I just installed Mint 7 64 bit. How do you get rid of the annoying quotes in the terminal? The last Mint I used was Mint 5 and it let you turn them off after initial install. Now you get them if you like them or not.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Some people like the "fortune" quotes - it gives Mint a distinct old terminal Unix days sort of style. :wink:
Anyways, edit the file /etc/bash.bashrc and comment out the last line "/usr/bin/mint-fortune".
