How would I propagate a default route under RIP, from a router? The operating system is Ubuntu. Can this be done in Quagga? What would be the command?

I found a solution for a cisco router:

Router1#configure terminal 
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router1(config)#ip route
Router1(config)#router rip
Router1(config-router)#default-information originate

How would this work in quagga? Thanks a lot.

From the quagga docs:

RIP command: default-information originate

seems you can easily do it.
