You may have noticed the warning message while using sudo for the first time on Linux. The warning message is something like this:

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.</pre>

I think it's fancy to keep the waring message not only for the first time but for all the time, and surely I like it. You may also want to keep it if you have multiple users on your computer or server. Or even being a single fancy user like mine. ;)

Okay, I will show you how to keep the message forever on your Terminal while executing any sudo command.

Let's start. Create a file named local.conf inside /etc/sudoers.d/ of your Linux machine. You can use the command bellow to do that:

sudo touch /etc/sudoers.d/local.conf
Now open this file (/etc/sudoers.d/local.conf) with your preferred text editor in root mode. I use nano.
sudo nano /etc/sudoers.d/local.conf
Append this line into the file.
Defaults        lecture = always
Save the file. Close your Terminals and reopen it. Now try to do something with sudo.

I will post how to edit the warning message next. Till then let us know via comment what do you think about this type of fancy things!

Update 10-12-12: Wrote the follow up post: How to personalize the fancy warning message of sudo.

What's on your mind?

I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!

First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
