This time I made a thought to share something interesting.It is not related to system admin but it is just for fun.
I generally use ubuntu most of the time for my desktop purposes. Hope you will like this matrix effect on your terminal.
First you have to install cmatrix package into your system. It is already available on Ubuntu repo, so no additional repo require to add. Run the command
sudo apt-get install cmatrix
It will install the cmatrix package.
Now on terminal run the command
And how it looks.
You can find more options in cmatrix by typing command
cmatrix --help. In given below output, you can see available help options.
sharad@sharadchhetri:~$ cmatrix --help Usage: cmatrix -[abBfhlsVx] [-u delay] [-C color] -a: Asynchronous scroll -b: Bold characters on -B: All bold characters (overrides -b) -f: Force the linux $TERM type to be on -l: Linux mode (uses matrix console font) -o: Use old-style scrolling -h: Print usage and exit -n: No bold characters (overrides -b and -B, default) -s: "Screensaver" mode, exits on first keystroke -x: X window mode, use if your xterm is using mtx.pcf -V: Print version information and exit -u delay (0 - 10, default 4): Screen update delay -C [color]: Use this color for matrix (default green) sharad@sharadchhetri:~$
Enjoy cmatrix! It is really cool.
Nice effect. Some issues though, the characters don’t fade out like in the matrix film, and the text is too fast and frequent

You can get many options from its help page. You can change color and speed too.
