This is my repository for my ongoing project to have English language political fortunes in BLAG.
All you need is fortune mod. On Debian-based systems:
$ sudo apt-get install fortune-mod
$ sudo make install distro=debian
$ sudo make uninstall distro=debian
Where distro=debian should be replaced with your distribution's name. For example, on Fedora say distro=fedora.
For supported distribution options, look here.
To run the program, simply say
$ fortune anarchism When the people are being beaten with a stick, they are not much happier if it is called "the People's Stick." ----+- Mikhail Bakunin -+----
Here is a more whimsical example:
$ fortune anarchism | cowsay _________________________________________ / Whosoever lays a hand on me in order to \ | govern me is a usurper and a tyrant; I | | declare him my enemy. | | | \ ----+- Pierre-Joseph Proudhon -+---- / ----------------------------------------- \ ^__^ \ (oo)\_______ (__)\ )\/\ ||----w | || ||
I want to see fortunes when my terminal starts, as in BLAG 140000!
To do this quickly, enter the following command:
$ echo -e "\nfortune -s anarchism\necho" >> $HOME/.bashrc
To disable the fortunes, remove these lines from $HOME/.bashrc:
fortune -s anarchism echo
I have several sources for most of my quotes:
Unfortunately some writings do not have an English translation, so I rely on machine translations from other various sources.
