Ubuntu: How do I stop displaying “warranties” notice when logging in on tty1 console



Question:

That messages the ubuntu displays about warranties and suggestions for help.

The only thing I want to see is the version and status of updates.

Actually if someone can tell me how to create my own messages to display that would be great.


Solution:1

The text you are looking for is inside

/etc/legal  

The programs included with the Ubuntu system are free software;  the exact distribution terms for each program are described in the  individual files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright.    Ubuntu comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by  applicable law.  

Before you start editing this: as far as I know this is shown ONCE per user logging in. When there is a file

~/.cache/motd.legal-displayed  

it will NOT be shown. So just create that and it will be gone. Easiest method is to execute this command:

touch ~/.cache/motd.legal-displayed  

If you want to add your own messages you can add a file to

/etc/update-motd/  

Currently it will hold:

00-header     90-updates-available  98-fsck-at-reboot  10-help-text  91-release-upgrade    98-reboot-required  

The file names are executed in alphabetical order and their name sort of states what it shows. 00-header is the "Welcome..." text. 10-help-text shows the URL to the Ubuntu documentation etc.
