Have Cow or Ubuntu speak to you ?

With this in mind, use Synaptic to search for and install cowsay. Once it’s installed, open a terminal and type the following:
$ cowsay “Ubuntu Kung Fu”


Cow Says ….
You can have the cow say a single word or an entire phrase. Cows aren’t the only things that can talk. If you look in /usr/share/cowsay/cows/, you’ll find other models that can be made to talk. Just specify the model using the -f command option (without the .cow extension). For example, to have Tux (the Linux mascot) appear instead, type the following:
$ cowsay -f tux “Ubuntu Kung Fu”
For a little fun, add one of these commands to the end of your .bashrc file (to edit the file, type gedit ~/.bashrc). Then you’ll see it every time you open a terminal window or log in at a virtual console.
You could even use this command to have your quotation of the day come out of the mouth of a cow. Just add the following line to your .bashrc line (adding any cowsay command options you wish after the command)
Ubuntu includes a built-in speech synthesizer called espeak. It’s there to work in partnership with the Orca screen reader, which provides support for those who are partially-sighted but it can also be called from the command-line, as follows
$ espeak “Ubuntu Kung Fu”
