Linux Software Map: fortune.it


  • Version: 1.51
  • Entered-date: 1998-11-13
  • Description: Set of Linux fortunes for Italian users, based on the original fortune files distributed with bsd-games archive from NetBSD. fortune.it contains a lot of quotations, jokes, etc., to be displayed every time a user logs in or a login shell is open. All fortunes are in Italian language, of course (if you don't know it, they are totally useless :-)). Some fortunes have been translated from original English/American fortune files; others have been added directly in Italian (they're "new
  • files:ies"). There are two fortune ASCII files: - `italia': it's the main file; - `zozzital': it's smaller, and contains sentences, jokes, etc., which might be offensive or insulting for someone (it is not coded ROT-13).

  • Platforms: Any Linux distribution. `fortune' command required (for Slackware, it is contained in "Y" disk set). However, fortune files are in ASCII text/plain format (with end-lines in Unix style), readable by using any editor on any platform. Note that bsd-games don't run on Linux only, but on almost all Unixes where you can find a C compiler... fortune.it does not even need it!
  • Copying-policy: Freeware
Note: Not all entries contain correct, complete filenames or URLs. FTP sites often refuse connections due to excessive traffic. If you have difficulty with the provided links to individual files, try the first link, which is usually to a directory or web site for the program as a whole.
