Install Screenfetch and customize your terminal

It has already been commented on many occasions all customization possibilities which has Linux, and which range from the graphical environment of the operating system itself to the terminal. Normally the terminal emulator itself that includes Ubuntu usually allows some customization, but some third-party applications like Terminator allow us to switch from the background image to the font colors.

However and regardless of the emulator we are using, we can always add a little touch of personality using Screenfetch. Basically, Screenfetch is a small one script which we can install for add the Ubuntu logo or any distribution we are using in the terminal -in my case Linux Mint-. This is not a complicated thing, but for newcomers to Linux it is always good to remember this kind of thing.

The installation process it is very simple, It is a matter of following a small step and from here you will be able to have the logo of your terminal presiding over each session of text environment that you start. To install Screenfetch on Ubuntu open a terminal and run these commands:


chmod +x screenfetch-dev


Once we have finished running the script all we have to do is close the terminal and reopen it, And if all went well we should see the logo of our distribution presiding over our session in text mode. This not only works for the graphical environment emulator, as if we open a TTY we should get the same result.

As you have seen, installing Screenfetch and having it running is very simple and has no difficulty. Plus, it’s a pretty eye-catching customization element that always looks good and gives a little touch of distinction to our terminal every time we do it.
