During the Polish Print Party, a scene performed silently behind the bar counter…

they are about :

=== FIGlet ==============================

  • Go to Synaptic to install the Figlet package
  • Find the pre-installed fonts: /usr/share/figlet
  • To add more fonts: /usr/share/figlet (That is for all users. Otherwise, you have to put the new fonts in a directory of your choice by indicated with -d(directory))

It will look like this

yi@core2duo:~$ figlet -f banner it will be looked like this

or like this

yi@core2duo:~$ figlet -d /home/yi/figfonts -f isometric2 or like this

Have fun with Frank, Ivan and Glen’s letters!

=== Cowsay / Cowthink =========================

  • find out cow’s home to start installation
  • then: sudo apt-get install cowsay
  • open file: .bashrc
  • add line
  • echo Bonjour $USER

Sometimes it looks like this

yi@core2duo:~$ cowsay -d $M like this

Sometimes it looks like that

yi@core2duo:~$ cowsay -p $M like that

Or like

yi@core2duo:~$ cowsay -f dragon.cow like…

A vous de jouer 🙂
