LinuxMint: Remove the terminal fortune messages

When I first used LinuxMint, I thought it was a nice touch to have random messages greet you when you open a new terminal window.

It was different, witty or funny. Four to five releases later, they just don't seem as funny anymore.

Screenshot-twig@twigmint^% ~So, how to get rid of them? I couldn't find any specific setting in the Terminal program.

So, off to the forums I went and found this:

sudo vim /etc/bash.bashrc

Go to the end and remove the line that says:


And then remove it:

sudo apt-get remove fortune

*update 2/6/2011*

Ok, if you were silly like me and followed forum instructions to remove fortune, then DONT! It'll make your login screen black.

To bring it back, do the following:

sudo apt-get install fortune-mod fortunes-husse fortunes-min mint-artwork-common mint-artwork-gnome mintsystem

A minor setback. You go and continue being awesome!
