Add a Welcome message in Terminal

  9 years ago

Open the file .bashrc, which is found at location:

  • /home/user/.bashrc – before press Ctrl + H

or by typing a command in terminal:

  • gedit ~/.bashrc

If the file .bashrc is not, you must create.

Add a message you need to use the echo command for each line.

  • echo Welcome back Cristian! or your name.

When your done adding your message just save and open a terminal to see if you like your new welcome message

crismblog 9 years ago

I'll make a tutorial for fortune and animals that occur in older versions of Linux Mint.

But first I had to inform me. So you have to wait a bit.
