Disabling Terminal Startup Script

Hello, new ArchLabs user and absolutely loving this on i3! Does anyone know how to disable the neofetch/screenfetch like script that executes when a new terminal is opened? This seems like a nice touch to Openbox, but is a little much when launching and tiling several windows within i3. Thanks in advance!

Remove the entry from your bash/zshrc called “al-info”.

Next time you start the terminal it will be gone :).


That did it, thank you sir!

Anytime :smiley:

If you could mark the post solved please. You do this by selecting the square with the tick next to reply :smiley:

Hi, i remove the line ´´al-info´´ but still appears :wink:

Show me your bashrc or zshrc.

Alrighty, at the very bottom there remove al-info and you should be good to go.

P.S. please use code tags when posting stuff like that.

No need to apologise :smiley: Just was a reminder.

after logout the script keeps coming… i can live with that :wink:

If you reboot, what it does.

Are you using bash or zsh? If you are using zsh you will need to removed al-info from the zshrc as well.

im using Bash

i will try it

Sometimes it takes effects only after reboots, might not do anything, but never know.

once you remove al-info from .bashrc it shouldn’t show again.

after rebooting the system the script persists

Well , it must be on zhs I guess.( was it removed , zhs I mean)

You can’t have deleted al-info from .bashrc.

I did it just now on my test laptop and it worked.
