Linux Terminal Fun ?
One can never say it enough: the terminal is a very powerful tool, and is probably the most interesting part in Unix. Among the plethora of useful commands and scripts that you can use, some seem less practical, if not completely useless. I’ve selected for you a couple of commands that are useless because they are funny, but not funny because they are useless (or maybe the other way around for some). If you are searching for ASCII art, random math curiosities, or various (in)utilities, this is the best of the useless.
Always we are thinking Linux Terminal is boring. Today I am going to show you How to do Fun on Linux terminal.
Fun 1:- Fun with Calender
get your specific year calender
For Whole year calender type [email protected]:~# cal 2014
Fun 2 :- Train engine in Linux Terminal
The tool to do that trick is sl, a cool script written by a Japanese to correct users who accidentally enter sl instead of ls on the terminal. SL stands for Steam Locomotive.
First install SL via command [email protected]:~# apt-get install sl
then type SL on the terminal
Fun 3 :- XPenguines on the Desktop
XPenguins is an X Window System screenmate program that shows an animation of various penguins involved in various activities, such as reading, falling, digging, skating, etc. The program moves the penguins around as if the windows were solid objects the penguins could stay, walk, or skate on. The program has been written and is currently maintained by Robin Hogan
