I have Ubuntu 16.04 LTS installed on my HP Compaq 6005 SFF and I want to have neofetch run when I open up any terminal application (Yakuake especially)

So how can I make this happen?


Just put the command in your .bashrc file in your home directory

nano ~/.bashrc

Go to the bottom of the file and type neofetch. Once set there, it will execute every time you start your terminal. The .bashrc is loaded each time you start a terminal session.

  • No command '~nano' found, did you mean: Command 'nano' from package 'nano' (main) Command 'rnano' from package 'nano' (main) ~nano: command not found – CalebO5 May 16 '18 at 21:32

  • nano is a text editor. Most Linux distributions have it installed by default. It's strange you don't have it. You can use any editor to do this, .bashrc is a simple text file. However, you may not be able to see it, because it starts with a dot. Search in your file manager's options and enable showing the hidden files. Then simply open .bashrc with your preferred text editor, go to the bottom and type neofetch. – haralambov May 17 '18 at 16:47
  • Ok thank you for that information and then I add neofetch's command to the .bashrc file right? – CalebO5 May 17 '18 at 17:17

All I did was this

  1. nano ~/.bashrc
  2. Go down to the bottom and type in this a. #NeoFetch (Enter) neofetch
  3. Save the file with Control + X, Enter, Y

And thats it! It now works
