I found a new Gnome Easter egg the other day. Just when I thought I knew about all of them (yeah, I know, some Gnome developer is sitting back in the corner laughing about all the Easter Eggs we *don’t* know about!) I find a few more.
This one will require you to logout and log back in, but its worth the slight hiccup.
At the login prompt, where it asks for a username, enter:
The username and password prompt will then follow as normal, but you’ll get a quick surprise before you’re logged in.
This one is cool man
Gimme Random Cursor
It works with “Switch User,” too, if you have a second account and don’t want to actually log out.
How did you stumble upon this?!?
This is cool! I also want to ask how you stumbled upon this 🙂
Hmm I tried this and now GNOME won’t work anymore. The screen blacks out and I’m returned to the login screen.
Anyway of fixing this?
Actually Do switch users, Type Require Quarter and again type your normal username. In this way you dont have to log out.
Oh that’s nice. Cool
Any idea how an admin might push this to all machines from a command line? 😉
All it needs is a way to require an actual quarter to be inserted. Something like waiting for a signal from a serial port, then to lock the screen after a timeout.
