Cool and nifty Christian programs run on Linux!


Whats on Linux for Christians

 The Christian Counter

KJV Bible Fortune Files:
Although in the Bible fortune telling is looked upon as a bad thing, the Linux "fortune" program doesn't really tell fortunes but instead displays silly one-liners when run. Many times the fortune program is run automatically and the result is displayed at your login prompt. Either way, these files, compiled by David M. Bartusik, are designed to provide your fortune program with something Christian to say - specifically a Bible quote! Simply download and unzip/tar this into your fortune data directory (usually somewhere around /usr/games/fortune) and run your fortune program with the "kjv" data like this: /usr/games/fortune kjv or alternatively you can just replace the fortune and fortune.dat files with the kjv and kjv.dat files to be able to run fortune without any paramaters. Download HERE.

Christian Nuggets:
These nuggets are guaranteed not to give you high cholesterol! Compiled by David M. Bartusik, these fortune files (see above) have lots of wonderful quotes by various people about the Bible and Christianity. Download and use them in the same manner as the KJV files listed above (in fact, get them both!). Download HERE.

Linux(daily)Bread:
I have to say this is pretty cool! Another fine program by David M. Bartusik, LinuxBread is a program that uses xmessage to display a "My Daily Bread" type of message to your xwindows session. The MDB message, of course, changes every day. Download (easiest place would be your ~/bin directory), unzip/tar into a directory and run the "linbread" script. Requires xwindows and xmessage. Download HERE.

Linux Bible Trivia:
Yet another one from David M. Bartusik! This Bible trivia program lets you have a new Bible trivia question each day and if you don't know the answer, it smartly gives you a passage reference for you to look up the answer! (Nothing wrong with promoting reading the Bible right?) Download (easiest place would be your ~/bin directory), unzip/tar into a directory and run the "trivia1" script. Requires xwindows and xmessage. Download HERE.

And More!:
Obviously if you have any programs like these that you have written or even if you have an idea for a Christian Linux program you'd like to see, please email me and let me know.
