Hi all

Under Slackware, whenever I would open up konsole (a terminal app), so a fortune would be displayed before the typical Bash prompt.

Is there a way of setting it up under Debian so that it can do the same thing?

Just put a call to the fortune program in ~/.bash_profile .

Thanks. Fixed with:

# call fortune:
if [ -x /usr/games/fortune ] ; then
echo ; /usr/games/fortune ; echo
