Hi !

How can you use a screensaver in the console ? I have always tried to use cmatrix, but I don't know how to start a program after a certain time of inactivity.
And to aalib :
Try compiling your mplayer with aalib, and choose it as videooutput (-vo). Pretty weird, but nevertheless cool :)

i am all about aalib. there are some great programs out there for it. and for a screensaver, I have "setterm -blank 0" run at startup to disable console blanking, then run aalib on an empty console when i am done for a while. i am still trying to find a way to make it an actual screensaver like in freeBSD.

Hello, All:

I'm stumped: If your login screen doesn't need to change, why not just edit the /etc/issue file using vi? i.e., Why create a script that removes a file just to create the same file again?

:!: I'll repeat the question for clarity:
Quote:

I haven't seen a single solution here that uses a static /etc/issue but have seen many login screens that don't produce dynamic information. (The reason that I ask is this: I would like to know how to create a static login screen that contains the ANSI color escape codes without having to create /etc/init.d/issue. Every other solution on the 'Net also uses the `echo -e "\033[#;#m...` approach...

I made a custom startup screen that other Canadians might be interested in, here is a screenshot

Maybe I am dyslexic, but how do you make the cowsay appear when i open up aterm? I saw a screenshot with something like that happening, but it could have been only an ssh loging?

Thanks for this great thread. I have really enjoyed setting this up on my computer. I have a question though. The script that I have cobbled together from posts in this thread updates correctly /etc/issue and /etc/issue.net and it works correctly as far as I can tell. But I keep getting errors from the cron daemon.

The errors are as follows:

Code:

Date: Fri, 22 Aug 2003 09:45:00 -0700 (PDT)
From: Cron Daemon <root@mcising.net>
To: root@mcising.net
Subject: Cron <root@shadow>  /etc/init.d/issue
                                                                               
TERM environment variable not set.

Code:

Date: Fri, 22 Aug 2003 09:45:00 -0700 (PDT)
From: Cron Daemon <root@mcising.net>
To: root@mcising.net
Subject: Cron <root@shadow> root /etc/init.d/issue
                                                                               
/bin/sh: line 1: root: command not found


I get this error everytime the cron job runs and it is just annoying to have it fill up my mail box. The bash script that I run every ten minutes via cron is the following:
Code:

#!/bin/bash
                                                                                                                                                 
if [ -f /etc/gentoo-release ]; then

echo -e " " >> /etc/issue
cp /etc/issue /etc/issue.net
cp /etc/issue /etc/motd
chmod 644 /etc/motd
fi


The crontab entry looks like this:
Code:

*/10 * * * *     root    /etc/init.d/issue


Any suggestions would be most appriciated. Thanks in advance.

In case anyone else is having the same error. The solution is to change these lines:
Code:

/usr/bin/clear >> /etc/issue
echo -e " " >> /etc/issue

To This
Code:
 
TERM=linux /usr/bin/clear > /etc/issue
printf "\e[2J\e[H" >> /etc/issue


That fixes the first error of the environment variable not being set. The next error of root not being a command, is because I am noob and added in the job to the cron daemon wrong. I looked at /etc/crontab for how to format the entry and it has root in as the sixth entry, but when you do a crontab -e, the sixth item should be the job and the user should not be listed. So the crontab entry should look like this:
Code:

*/10 * * * *     /etc/init.d/issue

[quote="Master_Of_Disaster"]Fine, made it as Sedated suggested, there is just one anoying problem:
Code:
fuero@bmfh fuero $ sudo /etc/init.d/issue start
 * Could not get dependency info for "issue"!
 * Could not get dependency info for "issue"!
 * Building Linux Welcome Message
 *      Creating /etc/issue...                     [ ok ]
 *      Creating /etc/issue.net...                 [ ok ]
fuero@bmfh fuero $


/sbin/depscan.sh will fix the dependancy errors.

I added the start/stop to my script and then ran /sbin/depscan.sh and those errors are now gone.

Hi all...

I started to make my own /etc/init.d/issue after reading this thread a while :)
This is what I ended up with:
Code:
    .vir.       Gentoo Gnu/Linux       
 .d$$$$$$b.                                     
 $$$$( )$$$b    Hostname: lappy.potro.net
 Q$$$$$$$$$$B   Kernel:   2.6.0-test8-mm1
   "$$$$$$$P    Uptime:   3:02
  d$$$$$$P"                                     
 $$$$$$$P       ALL UNAUTHORIZED USERS WILL BE CONDEMNED TO DIE!
 `Q$$P"                                         

Wed Oct 22 01:02:19 EEST 2003

The g is taken from the linux-logo -ebuild's gentoo logo and the rest is mostly inspired by this thread :) I used a simple awk line to take just the uptime and nothing but the uptime from the output of "uptime". It's not as easy as you might think ;)

Here is the code (if someone is interested):
Code:
#!/bin/sh

LGRAY="\033[1;6m\033[1;37m"
YELLOW="\033[1;6m\033[1;33m"
PURPLE="\033[1;6m\033[1;35m"
WHITE="\033[1;6m\033[1;37m"
COLOR_RESET="\033[0m"

# Let's simplify this a bit :)
UPTIME=`uptime | awk '{for ( i = 3; i <= NF-7; i++ ) if ( i != NF-7 ) \
        print $i; else print substr($i,1,length($i)-1);}'` 

rm -f /etc/issue
echo -e $PURPLE'                                                ' >> /etc/issue
echo -e $PURPLE'    .vir.       Gentoo '$WHITE'Gnu/Linux        ' >> /etc/issue
echo -e $PURPLE' .d$$$$$$b.                                     ' >> /etc/issue
echo -e $PURPLE' $$$$( )$$$b    '$LGRAY'Hostname: '$(hostname -a) >> /etc/issue
echo -e $PURPLE' Q$$$$$$$$$$B   '$LGRAY'Kernel:   '$(uname -r)    >> /etc/issue
echo -e $PURPLE'   "$$$$$$$P    '$LGRAY'Uptime:   '$UPTIME        >> /etc/issue
echo -e $PURPLE'  d$$$$$$P"                                     ' >> /etc/issue
echo -e $PURPLE' $$$$$$$P       '$YELLOW'ALL UNAUTHORIZED USERS WILL BE'\
                                'CONDEMNED TO DIE!' >> /etc/issue
echo -e $PURPLE' `Q$$P"                                          '>> /etc/issue

echo -e $LGRAY"\n$(date)" >> /etc/issue
echo -e $COLOR_RESET >> /etc/issue
cp -f /etc/issue /etc/issue.net

sorry for this bumpage but i'm having some problem with this

i got the issue file to display correctly before i am able to log in but i have another problem

i created an issue.net and enabled banner /etc/issue.net

then i ssh in from my windows machine though putty and i get no message, zip nada, none

so is it just something with putty or ?

thanks

UPDATE:

if i log in using ssh1 i get nothing just a login prompt then when i log in it display last time i log in.

now if i switch to ssh2 i get a log in prompt i type in the login name, then i get the message from issue.net then it presents me with the password field.

this is partway there but i want it to all display BEFORE the login thing is even printed to screen meaning it print to screen then let u to log in. and also wondering why it partly work with ssh2 but not ssh1

thanks

Hi, I think this is a cool topic. It is one of those things that makes your computer "special".
Maybe anyone knows a script that outputs the number of the terminal you are logged in to? I searched google and the fora but I couldn't find anything.

I thought I'd mention that some of you guys might be interested in trying figlet, it's a great program for making banners out of ASCII "fonts"... like so:

Code:

localhost odinsdream # echo "farscapeone" | figlet -f chunky -w 120
  ___                                                           
.'  _|.---.-.----.-----.----.---.-.-----.-----.-----.-----.-----.
|   _||  _  |   _|__ --|  __|  _  |  _  |  -__|  _  |     |  -__|
|__|  |___._|__| |_____|____|___._|   __|_____|_____|__|__|_____|
                                  |__|                           
localhost odinsdream #


emerge figlet && showfigfonts | less

... I'm working on adding this kind of functionality to /etc/init.d/issue, so that I can get a chunky output of uname -r...

But, is the definitive answer that this isn't just a matter of dropping stuff into /etc/issue itself? Is there no way to convert that into a script? What process reads and prints the contents of /etc/issue? man issue talks about expansions of anything that getty understands, like \s. Where can I find more information about getty, what it is, and what it can expand on?

For some reason I can't get my box to use either /etc/init.d/issue or /etc/issue instead of /etc/issue.logo

anyone know how I can fix that ?

./greet: line 14: / 1024 : syntax error: operand expected (error token is "/ 1024 ")

That is when I get when I try to run (https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=2972&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=25&sid=4c49743afe24fb84392c6d4ba8526193)
Line 14 is;
S=$(( ${KS%k} / 1024 ))

Anyone got an idea?

Found it
KS=`dmesg | grep "Swap" | awk '{print $3}'`
should be;
KS=`dmesg | grep "swap" | awk '{print $2}'`

(watch the Swap to swap to)
