I want to display a message showing "welcome to terminal" whenever I open a terminal. Any ideas?
.bashrc is your best friend for that approach.
.bashrc is linked to your account when you reached to your desktop after booting up. When you open your terminal, the system will go through
.bashrc for any specific instructions prior having the terminal ready for your use.
So, you can add
echo "Hello world, and you!" at the last line of your
.bashrc without editing anything in that script, and there it is...your terminal bows to you.
Open your terminal and paste as
echo " Ramana Reddy "
at last line , save & close. Close your terminal and open it again.
NOTE: dont touch any other lines in .bashrc.
