Message users on shell?
Ive been trying to figure out how to message users on the Linux shell.
There is a program I was playing with called talk but I cant get it to work.
Is there any way to message another user logged onto that machine?
You can do it manually. Check 'ps ax' to see which tty the user in question is logged into then type:
echo "Your message here" > /dev/ttyN
Where N is the tty number.
You can also use the 'write' program: check out 'man write'
