 Removing fortune text in the terminal


Tested on Helena and Isadora

============================================================================

English:

open a terminal and type:

gksu gedit /etc/bash.bashrc

then go at the end of the file and delete last line:  /usr/bin/mint-fortune  (or /usr/games/mint-fortune)

Save the file and relaunch the terminal. Fortune is gone.

or:

add # and a space before "/usr/bin/mint-fortune"

============================================================================

Français:

ouvrir un terminal et taper:

gksu gedit /etc/bash.bashrc

Supprimer la dernière ligne de la page: /usr/bin/mint-fortune (ou /usr/games/mint-fortune)

Sauvegarder le fichier et relancer le terminal.

ou:

au lieu de supprimer,  ajouter # et un espace avant "/usr/bin/mint-fortune".

@Clem: I think someone suggested collaboration on ideas and tutorials which might be something to consider given this is a 'community' site? Perhaps something along the lines of edit groups to allow more than one contributor? This might have pattern matching similar to launchpads on new ideas and tutorials, so a list of existing posts matching keywords is shown before the new post is committed, giving the poster the opportunity to apply to join the edit list for similar posts and merge their own thoughts?

There is already a tutorial for this at http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/31, please lets not start duplicating - check you are not re-inventing the wheel before you post.
