[SOLVED] Humor? in terminal window

Postby jaspmatt on Thu May 28, 2009 6:02 pm

I made the mistake of not turning off the little sayings that appear in the terminal window. How do I turn them off now?

Thanks everybody ...

In the menu go to Administration > mintAssistant, go through and then untick enable Fortunes. That's how I would do it.

Assuming you're using Gnome though.

I like them though, they make me chuckle :D

in mint 7 there is no mintassistant.

instead open terminal and...
gksu gedit /etc/bash.bashrc

enter your password

scoll all the way to the bottom. the last line will have 'fortune' in it.
just put a hash mark '#' in front of that line and save.

restart terminal ;)
