    This program linux-logo does NOT need any X installed at all.

    So you are incorrect when you said:

    “linux_logo is written primarily in C programming Language, which displays linux logo in an X Window System and hence User Interface X11 aka X Window System should be installed. The software is released under GNU General Public License Version 2.0.”

    I have complied this run on a Raspberry PI, with NO X. Works great.

    Thanks for the article.

    linux_logo -L 21 is not Redhat. It appears to be PLD instead. Otherwise great article.

    Ubuntu package name is “linuxlogo” not linux_logo.

      Dear Bavarian,
      I am aware of this fact and hence the very first line says:
      “linuxlogo or linux_logo is a Linux command line utility”

      Let me tell you a few strange thing about this project
      On Debian linuxlogo as well as linux_logo both works, however the man page (man linuxlogo) shows man linux_logo.
      On Ubuntu linux_logo doesn’t work but linuxlogo does and interesting part is man page of linuxlogo shows man linux_logo.
      same is the condition on CentOS (as Ubuntu).

        Interesting! On Mint 18.1 it says-
        The program ‘linux_logo’ is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt install linuxlogo

        So basically it recognizes linux_logo but uses linuxlogo.
        Thank you! I am aware of screenfetch but like many other, I came to know about linux_logo/ linuxlogo just now from you!
