Fortune cookies for Linux



Fortune brings you a saying or a joke when you launch a terminal

session. Or you can attach a fortune to your email signature to

brighten up your messges.

If you want your fortune telling and

you can’t wait until your next Chinese

meal, why not configure your

Linux computer to hand out virtual fortune


Which Version?

Most Linux distributions include a fortune-

cookie tool known as Fortune. The

package for Suse 9.3 is simply called fortune.

Gentoo users can give the emerge

fortune-mod command to add the virtual

fortune teller to their software collection.
