Linux Logo


Hi all

I've been trying to get Linux logo to work with Ubuntu with no luck

as any one else had any luck, I can only find a hand full of links and that dont seem to work.

Only way I can view these logo's are by running the command

Code:
root@kline:~# linux_logo -L 26
Code:
              .-. 
        .-'``(|||) 
     ,`\ \    `-`.                 88                         88 
    /   \ '``-.   `                88                         88 
  .-.  ,       `___:      88   88  88,888,  88   88  ,88888, 88888  88   88 
 (:::) :        ___       88   88  88   88  88   88  88   88  88    88   88 
  `-`  `       ,   :      88   88  88   88  88   88  88   88  88    88   88 
    \   / ,..-`   ,       88   88  88   88  88   88  88   88  88    88   88 
     `./ /    .-.`        '88888'  '88888'  '88888'  88   88  '8888 '88888' 
        `-..-(   ) 
              `-`

The -D option will allow you to specify a file name for the logo to display... According to the man page.

what format do you have to save a file at to make it work

Quote:
-D filename
Use logo from "filename"
I've tried ./file and file.txt

I've added both to the .bashrc file
not seeing the logo yet

I would imagine the file would be raw text.
Cut and paste from the browser window, into a terminal window, and save the file, then add the -D option and path to the file. Try running it from the command line first, once you know it works, then you can add it to your bashrc.

So it appears to be looking for an ANSI file.. I think either google for a ANSI art generator, or run dos2unix over the file should get it working.
