    Computer information script

    Hello all!
    Not sure where to put this thread but I figured I would put it here.

    I have searched the forums and have not found what I am looking for...though I should have looked harder I suppose.

    I was looking for the script that runs when you open a terminal showing the ascii ubuntu logo and your computer information like cpu ram and all that.

    Can someone post it for me? I would appreciate it!
    Thank you!

    Re: Computer information script

    There are several small programs, that show information about the computer and the operating system for example

    Code:
     sudo lshw
    Code:
     sudo dmidecode
    Code:
     hardinfo
    Code:
    cpuid
    and about the system

    Code:
     uname -a
    Code:
     lsb_release -a
    Code:
    top
    Code:
    free
    Code:
    swapon -s
    Code:
    cat /etc/mtab
    Code:
    sudo parted -l
    Code:
     sudo blkid

    Thank you sudodus but I was looking for a script that is auto-run when you start the terminal showing your specs and particularly the ascii ubuntu logo.

    Here is a pic of what I am talking about.

    That was new to me

    It seems the name is archey as you can see in the top line of the screenshot. So I suggest that you browse the internet for that name.

    There's another script that does the same thing called screenfetch.

    These are interesting scripts. "screenFetch" seems to work pretty well, just needs a few tweaks to colors to get it looking really good.

    It can auto-start by adding a path to the executable at the end of the .bashrc file found in the home folder.
