Using inxi (SOLVED)
« on: May 02, 2014, 07:15:02 am »
I've recently installed P4 and there's a couple of machine specific features on windows that would be handy to have, so would it be possible to have  more explicit instructions for using inxi so I can post the details?

Code: [Select]
inxi -F
Run the above in your terminal as user ($) and use the upper case F.  The only space in the command is between the "i" and the "-" (hyphen).
Then you can copy & paste the output to your post or favorite editor to save if you want to.

There are also a few other commands for gathering system information, such as
Code: [Select]
sudo lspci -vnn
and
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw
and GUI tools such as the System Profiler & Benchmarker hardinfo which can be installed with:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install hardinfo

Whoops! For some reason I'd convinced myself that it was more complicated and I'm still nervous of the terminal. I'm a little embarrassed. Thank you for the replies.

No need to feel embarrassed, Jono.....the command line / terminal can be a scary place.  To learn the basic stuff monitor the Peppermint forum and take note of the more common commands used here and what they do and if you don't understand something just ask (you will not be flamed here and there are no stupid questions).  Pretty soon you'll get a handle on at least the most common and useful command line tasks.   ;)
