Server – How to Get Server MOTD on Non-Server Install


Is there a way to get the fancy MOTD that shows up on an Ubuntu Server install on my Ubuntu Alternate install? Like this:

Welcome to Ubuntu 11.10 (GNU/Linux 3.0.0-12-server x86_64)

Posting this as an answer since Stefano Palazzo thought it would be a good idea.

The dynamic MOTD is part of the 'landscape-common' package. So just install it using:

sudo apt-get install landscape-common
