• How to display system info in terminal.

    21 hours on and working, that’s called using a computer

    hehehe…
    I had to leave it on overnight as something was running in the terminal. Thus, it counted that time as “uptime” while I was sleeping😄.

  • In addition, I have not shut down for several days due to an ongoing project🙂

  • An .iso was being created (a fork of Antergos) and the last command took several hours… As I executed the command before going to bed last night, I had to leave it up and running so it could complete the .iso build.

  • If you are curious about the new .iso that is in progress, more information is here.

    Sorry🙂. I didn’t quite understand where you were going with your comment earlier.

    Hi there!
    Simply install "Neofetch’ from Pamac.🙂

    If you want it to be displayed every time you open the terminal, simply add the line “neofetch” to the end of the ./bashrc file in Home. It should look something like this:

    ~/.bashrc

    If not running interactively, don’t do anything
    [[ $- != i ]] && return

    alias ls=‘ls --color=auto’
    PS1=’[\[email protected]\h \W]$ ’
    BEGIN ADDED BY CNCHI INSTALLER
    BROWSER=/usr/bin/chromium
    EDITOR=/usr/bin/nano
    END ADDED BY CNCHI INSTALLER
    neofetch

    @A-User ooohh! That’s a neat trick! Thank you! :)

    Thanks! I’m glad you found it useful🙂.

  • @iSpeakVeryWell, I really like your terminal! It’s very colorful😀

    I think this is one of the advantages of the dark themes. The colours stand out more while being softer to the eyes.

  • That’s true…

    I prefer a light and airy theme myself, but even I prefer a dark terminal🙂.

  • @catsndogs You can use VLC player to create ascii art. VLC can view pic files and has an option to playback in ascii.

    So,

    Open VLC > Tools > Preferences > Video Settings > Output > then select “ASCII art video output”

    Next

    Open VLC > open file > select your picture > press play (should see picture in the viewer) > pause > screenshot > Viola!

    That is how I made this one: http://imgur.com/a/mnIT3

    🙂

    Edit PS: “Screenfetch” is what I was using to retrieve my sys info in terminal (it’s in the repos, screenshot at the above link).

  • Can I follow this same procedure to set the default image shown in the terminal when “neofetch” is run?

  • @A-User If that question was for me, I’m not sure how to change your terminal picture. I was using it to make wallpapers.

    Edit: A little googling:

    Use custom picture in Neofetch (video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7vkxp8iNSU

  • Thank you so much, @blinky🙂.

    I didn’t intend to make you go to all of the trouble of finding out how to for me, I was just wondering if you already knew how. But thank you all the same! I reallly appreciate the links you posted😀.

  • Thank you @blinky!

    This is my new terminal (for now at least).

    NOTE: I have nothing against Antergos, I was just ready for a change when I opened my terminal🙂

  • If anyone wishes to change the logo that appears, simply run neofetch --ascii_distro *name-of-distro*. Here’s an example: neofetch --ascii_distro arch.

    Then, if you decide you like this change, simply replace the command “neofetch” with your new command in .bashrc😀.

  • I just found out (or stumbled upon it actually😄) that if you execute the command neofetch --ascii_distro linux in the terminal, the distro picture is a penguin! Here’s an example:
