Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

We have a 'little bear'? Where? How?

You need to explain more ... what edition and desktop of LinuxMint are you using?
( LinuxMint 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 ) ( Gnome, KDE or Xfce )

And where is this little image found? Exactly.

:lol: it must be a penguin

I see it!! In Terminal ... it's a little bear!! :P

There is a way to change or remove it . . . I saw another Topic Thread discussing this, but I don't know how.

Thanks for your hint. I found the solution just open the "/etc/bash.bashrc" file and comment out the line saying some "mint-fortune"

Just run the command:

Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /etc/bash.bashrc


At the very bottom of that file you'll see:

/usr/bin/mint-fortune

Just add a comment # as shown below:

#/usr/bin/mint-fortune

Then click on Save, then File > Quit.
