Quotations in Terminal in Gloria ( Solved)

Postby dnmint » Tue Jul 28, 2009 8:57 am

In Elyssa & Felicia, during installation there was an option not have quotations in Terminal.
In Gloria 64 bit such an option was not offered.
How do I disable that option
Thanks

one way is to edit /etc/bash.bashrc and comment out the mint-forturne call on the last line.

comment out this line:
/usr/bin/mint-fortune

Please bear with me.. what you mean by comment out? Delete the line
/usr/bin/mint-fortune

Pls advise

if you put a # at the front of the line, the line becomes a comment and will not be executed/run.
you have to edit it as root so use sudo, eg. in a terminal, sudo gedit /etc/bash.bashrc

or you can delete that line.

Either place a comment mark/character as # at the front of that line or delete it entirely and you won't get the fortune cookie saying on the screen

# /usr/bin/mint-fortune
