For debugging purpose sometimes I access a remote Linux box via VNC. At that time someone else may be working on that same Linux box through VNC and it may happen that I do not have facility to chat with that person. So essentially what happens is I start a new tab in the GNOME and type a message like this :
[xxx@slc04lyo abc]$ Hi this is X. I will use the box for some time Hi: Command not found.
Is it possible to not have shell print the following?
Hi: Command not found.
If yes how can I do that selectively and not always? So that when needed I can use the shell as a raw chat platform?
P.S: I do not need to see an output. The other user is already in the VNC and can see what I typed. So the output is superfluous.
