Hi jozefmw

Open your terminal Ctrl+Alt+t
at the prompt type or paste the following

Code: [Select]
cat /etc/lsb-release

Good luck

lsb_release -a is what i use, or you can install screenfetch neofetch or hardinfo and run any of them

This is what I get when I run
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz

Code: [Select]
albert@albert-Samsung-NP300E4A ~ $ inxi -Fz
System:    Host: albert-Samsung-NP300E4A Kernel: 4.19.0-041900-generic x86_64
           bits: 64
           Desktop: N/A Distro: Peppermint Nine
What was I thinking?

Though there are many ways to get this info, the correct answer (and the one most others such as inxi are using in the background) would be querying the lsb-release file with:
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/lsb-release
