Family Guy fortunes for fortune-mo
« on: February 01, 2013, 08:00:53 AM »
Here is an archive with a bunch of quotes from "The Family Guy" for fortunes, so obviously, you must have fortunes installed on your system. I take no credit for finding these quotes, they came from the family guy quotes list in UberScript for X-Chat, I just formatted them lines to work in fortune-mod, and created the needed files for fortune to read them. To install them you just have to extract the archive and place all 3 files in the /usr/share/games/fortunes folder then, to use the the Family Guy fortunes, just type into terminal
Code: [Select]
fortune FG

For some reason or another they wont work directly as a /exec in irc, (at least not on X-Chat) so if you want use these in irc you're gonna have to make a macro, or in the case of X-Chat, (my irc client of choice) i use an "autoreplace" line, so I go to
  • Settings
  • Advanced
  • Autoreplace
click on "Add New", and you will a new shortcut/autoreplace popup and just set what ever you want your trigger to be, example, I use "FG", so in the box that says "*NEW*" I enter "FG" (no quotes),  and in the box that says "EDIT ME", i have "/exec -o fortune FG" (again, no quotes) here is a screeenshot of what it looks like in my autoreplace
