LinuxTaRT uses a configuration file called specialdates to enable the user to display a specific tagline on certain special dates. The name and location of this file is specified in the LinuxTaRT configuration file ~/.tartrc, but is usually:
Each line of the special date file consists of a day of the year expressed as a two digit month, a forward-slash (/), a two digit date, a colon (:) and a line of text.
- mm/dd:tagline text
Any line that does not conform to this specification will be treated as a comment. Comments may also be specified by prefixing text with a # symbol. Using this method, you can place a comment behind a date line.
01/01:Happy New Year!!
Will use "Happy New Year!!" as the tagline when the date is January 1st.
12/25:Merry Christmas to all!
Displays "Merry Christmas to all!" as your tagline on Christmas day.
