Screenfetch can display the following information:
- the name of your distro
- Linux kernel version
- the number of installed packages on your system
- shell name and version
- screen resolution
- the name and version of your desktop environment
- CPU, GPU and RAM info
Open terminal from Unity Dash, App Launcher, or via Ctrl+Alt+T keys. When it opens, run below commands one by one:
|$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:djcj/screenfetch
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install screenfetch
To run screenFetch, open a terminal of some sort and type in the command screenfetch or wherever you saved the script to. This will generate an ASCII logo with the information printed to the side of the logo. There are some options that may be specified on the command line, and those are shown below or by executing screenfetch -h:
| -v Verbose output.
-o 'OPTIONS' Allows for setting script variables on the
command line. Must be in the following format...
-d '+var;-var;var' Allows for setting what information is displayed
on the command line. You can add displays with +var,var. You
can delete displays with -var,var. Setting without + or - will
set display to that explicit combination. Add and delete statements
may be used in conjunction by placing a ; between them as so:
-n Do not display ASCII distribution logo.
-N Strip all color from output.
-w Wrap long lines.
-t Truncate output based on terminal width (Experimental!).
-p Output in portrait mode, with logo above info.
-s [-u IMGHOST] Using this flag tells the script that you want it
to take a screenshot. Use the -m flag if you would like
to move it to a new location afterwards.
-c string You may change the outputted colors with -c. The format is
as follows: [0-9][0-9],[0-9][0-9]. The first argument controls the
ASCII logo colors and the label colors. The second argument
controls the colors of the information found. One argument may be
used without the other.
-a 'PATH' You can specify a custom ASCII art by passing the path
to a Bash script, defining `startline` and `fulloutput`
variables, and optionally `labelcolor` and `textcolor`.
See the `asciiText` function in the source code for more
informations on the variables format.
-S 'COMMAND' Here you can specify a custom screenshot command for
the script to execute. Surrounding quotes are required.
-D 'DISTRO' Here you can specify your distribution for the script
to use. Surrounding quotes are required.
-A 'DISTRO' Here you can specify the distribution art that you want
displayed. This is for when you want your distro
detected but want to display a different logo.
-E Suppress output of errors.
-V, --version Display current script version.
-h, --help Display this help.
