So i’m trying to make it whenever I log into my root account on a certain box it runs this script echo “$(tput setaf 1)Welcome, $(tput setab 0)Quinn!$(tput sgr 0)” echo “Checking for updates…” apt-get update 2>&1 >/dev/null echo “$(tput setaf 2)Done!$(tput sgr 0)” Now i have all of that working the way i want it too, but is there a way to make it so it can also print out a line if there are updates available?
