How do I get fortune to run everytime I start an xshell


I want fortune to run every time I run Kterm. I tried putting fortune into my .bash_profile, but it didn't work.

try your .bashrc file

That will execute it everytime you login (yes running Xshell means loging in again

Awsome! It worked. The reason I didn't try this is because there is a commented warning in my .bashrc file that says it should generate no output because it will break the scp and rcp commands. Any ideas what that means?
