stansaraczewski,

Take a look at the link listed below and you should be able to modify the "fortunes" any way you like, including uninstalling the program.


Best regards,

Hey i used this posted on the mint forums.
It work for me.

Open a terminal:

If using gnome, type:

gksu gedit /etc/bash.bashrc

If using KDE, type:

kdesu kate /etc/bash.bashrc

At the end of the file, remove or comment out the line:

/usr/games/fortune

Save the file.
