i've tried that and all i get is another blank terminal line....back where i started...so i tried opening it my self and i only get read only permissions and i'm the only user and administrator on my laptop!
A blank terminal line? Isn't that what you want though? I mean, you don't want fortunes in your terminal, so when you re-open a terminal, you won't see any more fortunes. As I've said, if you followed those instructions and deleted the last line (/usr/bin/mint-fortune) in that bash.bashrc file, save and close it, close the current terminal, and open a new one, you'll no longer see fortunes; I just tried it myself and it works.
Mikeymouse, delete the last line in /etc/bash.bashrc, the line that says /usr/bin/mint-fortune.
