How to set fire on your Lubuntu console

Hi everyone, welcome back to this awesome blog, today i'm going to show you how to set fire on your lubuntu console/command line.

just for the record we are not going to literally burn the console or the monitor, we are just going to play with program that can mimic fire burn.

Now i want you to open your console/command line on lubuntu (press CTRL + ALT + T), and then run this command:

sudo apt-get install libaa-bin

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

That command will install the program that we need to set fire/burn our console/terminal/command line of lubuntu.

Okay now we can go ahead run the program, type this command on the console/terminal and see what happens:

You should see something like this:

Now, let's make it more interesting by running aafire on fullscreen text mode, press CTRL + ALT + F1, and then login with your username and password, then run aafire.

This will make your entire screen burn, to get back to the desktop, simply press CTRL + ALT + F7, your desktop should come back by now.

  1. Thank you for this wonderful blog.

    Instead for CTRL + ALT + F1 you can ran F11 (Fullscreen)(working on Lubuntu 16.04)
