fortuner2

fortuner2 shows a fortune as a notification. Requires the fortune program (usually in package fortune-mod), notify-send from libnotify or libnotify-bin and gettext.sh & gettext commands from GNU gettext.

It has about the same functionality as fortuner, but the implementation is lighter. fortuner is a C++ application and fortuner2 is a shell script.

    # aptitude install fortune-mod libnotify-bin gettext-base

  2. Acquire the source code. $ git clone https://github.com/jnumm/fortuner2

  3. Build. $ make

  4. Run. $ ./fortuner2
