    System information in Xubuntu?

    How can I find system information on Xubuntu like how much RAM is installed or what kind of processor my laptop has. On Windows XP, I would go to "control panel" and then "system" to find this information. Is there something similar in Xubuntu 11.04?

    I'm trying to figure out if the RAM that I just installed is working.

    I'm new to Xubuntu, although I have used Ubuntu for several months.

    Yes, that's exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks. When I installed it and tried to run it, I get the following:
    exec: 9: mono: not found

    what does that mean? Am I missing a dependency?

    Thanks,

    Never had a problem running it.
    Hit Windows key:
    type in sysinfo
    click on icon;
    It should open no problem.

    sysinfo exec: 9: mono: not found Didnt work .I reinstalled rebooted and same nothing.
    Here is what the bin sysinfo says.

    #!/bin/sh

    prefix="/usr"
    exec_prefix="$(prefix)"
    libdir="$(exec_prefix)/lib/sysinfo"

    cd $(libdir)

    exec mono "Sysinfo.exe" "$@"

    Re: System information in Xubuntu?

    Last time I checked Xubuntu, there was an application which is installed by default to check the System Info.

    If you installed a new Hardware, the best approach to check is from BIOS as BIOS can be entered even before an OS can be loaded.

    I'm using Xubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) and it has System Monitor installed (a Gnome app, but hardly a resource-hungry monster).

    I do Menu --> System --> System Monitor.

    The result is in the attached screenshot.
