How to Add Evil Eye Permanent Banner in Termux?

The most popular script for adding an evil eye banner is called “Termux-Banner” created by Bhai4You on GitHub.

To add the banner:

  • Install git and other requirements with pkg install git
  • Clone the Termux-Banner repo with git clone https://github.com/Bhai4You/Termux-Banner
  • Give file permissions with chmod +x *
  • Install banner dependencies like Figlet with bash requirement.sh
  • Run the banner script with bash t-ban.sh
  • Follow the prompts to set your custom banner text

This will install the necessary packages and set up the banner to display each time you open Termux by adding commands to your bash profile. So it becomes “permanent” across sessions.

You can also create custom banners, but that requires more knowledge of tools like Figlet and Toilet. The Termux-Banner script provides a simple pre-made solution.

Zip and Unzip in Termux:

  1. Zip and unzip are used for file compression and decompression in Termux. This allows you to reduce file sizes for easier sharing and storage.
  2. To use zip/unzip, you need to install the zip package in Termux using pkg install zip.
  3. Basic usage:
  • Zip files/folders: zip archive.zip file1.txt folder1/
  • Unzip files: unzip archive.zip
  1. You can zip multiple files into one archive, password-protect zips, control compression level, and more. Some examples:
  • zip -r archive.zip file1.txt folder1/ (recursive zip)
  • zip -e archive.zip file1.txt (password protected)
  • zip -0 archive.zip file1.txt (no compression)
  1. For unzip, you simply run unzip archive.zip in the folder containing the zip file. It will extract contents to the current directory.
  2. Common issues are due to storage permission errors or invalid paths. Make sure you have storage access and use valid paths when zipping/unzipping.
