In this post, I will show you how to make ‘sudo’ display funny and humorous error messages in Ubuntu Linux.
To do that, you would only need to edit the /etc/sudoers :
sudo nano /etc/sudoers
Then find the line that starts with Defaults env_reset, add insults at the end of the line so it would look like this:
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file
Defaults env_reset, insults
Save the file, and you are done! You can test the results by running the sudo command and entering the wrong password.
Guake is a fancy Quake-like terminal which lets you access it by using a hotkey (user-customizable). Unobtrusive, Guake slides down from the top of the screen, and can be used while running other desktop applications, providing you with a quick access to the console.
