I want to print message when user login to linux using ssh like this message (welcome Mr john_097968) where john is username and 097968 is UID Number . so how can I do that using links terminal


Usually /etc/motd files contents are displayed when one logs into the server. You could add static text to this files which will be displayed on login. If you require dynamic content I recommend using /etc/profile file to set this welcome, since this file will be executed once any user logging into the system. You could just type in echo ${USER} to print the details on to the terminal.
