Description Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek 2007-07-12 08:45:32 UTC
Description of problem:

bash could make our life nicer, when it would show quotes on every bash startup.
Additionaly, the format of user@desktop string could be more human.

Actual results:

You'll only see your user name and computer name.

Expected results:

Some quotes in local language.

Doesn't fortune-mod already do what you want?

Comment 2 Jeff Sheltren 2007-07-12 20:43:32 UTC
Hi Jakub, once you install fortune-mod, to get a fortune on each login, you can
add something like this to your .bash_profile

if [ -t 0 ]; then
    if [ -x /usr/bin/fortune ]; then
        /usr/bin/fortune
    fi
fi

You can also change your prompt by setting PS1 in the same file.  I set my
prompt something like this:
PS1='[\u@\h \W]\$ '
