Running commands with dzdo automatically displays the lecture. How can lecture message be turned off ?

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.



Open /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf and search for the parameter:


#dzdo.lecture: once


Comment out this line and change the value from ‘once’ to ‘never’. Save the file and then run adreload to take effect.
