In /etc/update-motd.d are where the per login motd is generated.
First, if you want to add stuff, look at 99-footer
# motd.tail is reserved for the admin to append static # trailing information to a dynamically generated # /etc/motd. # # To add dynamic information, add a numbered # script to /etc/update-motd.d/
I have custom .bash_profile, so some of this is redundant.
I can remove the help-text and the header
rm 00-header rm 10-help-text
