How to install Neofetch 3.0 system information tool on Ubuntu

   Neofetch is a CLI system information tool written in BASH. Neofetch displays information about your system next to an image, your OS logo, or any ascii file of your choice. The main purpose of Neofetch is to be used in screenshots to show other users what OS/Distro you're running, what Theme/Icons you're using and etc.

    Neofetch is highly customizable through the use of commandline flags or the user config file. There are over 50 config options to mess around with and there's the print_info() function and friends which let you add your own custom info.
     Neofetch can be used on any OS that has BASH, it's just a matter of adding support. If your OS/Distro isn't in the list below, feel free to open an issue on the repo and I'll gladly add support. Neofetch currently supports Linux, MacOS, iOS, BSD, Solaris, Android, Haiku, GNU Hurd, MINIX, AIX, and Windows (Cygwin/MSYS2/Windows 10 Linux subsystem).

Neofetch 3.0

    The changes on offer in Neofetch 3.0 are fairly substantive, and range from additional operating system support to a new system-wide config installed to /etc/neofetch/config, including a slate of bug fixes, tweaks and improvements in-between.

Installation instructions:

  Opening terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and running the command:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dawidd0811/neofetch

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install neofetch

 Check version Neofetch :

$ neofetch --version
