Konsole quotes

How do I get rid of them? Every time I open the Konsole, I get some "wizdom" crap. I want to get rid of it, could somebody tell me how?

I'm using Slackware 9.1 and KDE 3.2.2.

Thanks in advance.

Hehe, figured out on my own... No, no checkboxes here, there are two scripts in /etc/profile.d: bsd-games-login-fortune.csh and that needed to be made NOT executable, and the damned "fortune cookies" went away.

See ya till next time.

Yeah, but have you just caused an error in your log everytime you open a terminal? Sounds like you didn't turn it off, you just broke it.
