How to install sl (steam locomotive) on Lubuntu

On linux there is a program called sl (steam locomotive) which created by japanese masashi toyoda. It's a prank program for those who mistakenly type sl instead of ls.

The sl command is also available on lubuntu/ubuntu, but you need to install first, open your console/terminal and then type this command:

sudo apt-get install sl

The package itself is very small only 25,6 kB, should not be a problem.

kernelpanic@kernelpanic:~$ sudo apt-get install sl
[sudo] password for kernelpanic:
