turning off quoes when konsole opens


i just installed slack 11 and everything has been going great. I've got my graphics and network configured with no major bumps along the way, and i'm just reading through the slackbook and trying to get everything else configured the way i want it. Anyway the little quotes that come up when i open a console, while sometimes amusing, tend to distract me and i was wondering if there was a way i could turn them off. I've looked through the configure console menu but have failed to find this option. thanks for any help.

..not a slack user so maybe you can clarify for me.. you mean like some historical quote on the command line?
If that is the case, you will probably see some program calling that in your ~/.bash_profile or /etc/profile

cheers

i don't appear to have any "." files in my home directories pertaining to this kind of thing other than .bash_history

Code:
root@darkstar:~# ls -a /home/randolph/
./   .ICEauthority  .bash_history  .kde/   .local/  .mozilla/  .screenrc  .xine/    NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9631-pkg1.run
../  .Xauthority    .fullcircle/   .kderc  .mcop/   .qt/       .ssh/      Desktop/  torrents/
i looked through my /etc/profile and didn't see anything about that, and also checked /etc/profile.d with no luck

thanks for any help you can provide

Might be too late, but the 'annoyance' is comming from a program called fortune
Code:
grep -R fortune /etc/*
and it will show up

thanks
i semi resolved this by putting a clear in my .profile but it will be nice if i can actually get a real fix
even though this post is very old lol


these are the culprits:
Code:
/etc/profile.d/bsd-games-login-fortune.sh
/etc/profile.d/bsd-games-login-fortune.csh

If You couldn't care less, try:
Code:
removepkg fortune
Or to keep the good while clear the bad:
edit the /etc/profile.d/bsd-games-login-fortune.sh and comment out (put a '#' in front) the echo ""; fortune ... line you'll find there
do so for both files... just in case.

Have a nice way
