A very good CPU-Z alternative for a Linux machine.
This awesome utility for Linux is an alternative to the CPU-Z program for Windows machines. This allows the user to gather information about their computer with a nice tabbed interface. There is a tab to gather system/OS information as well as CPU statistics. This is very useful for testing out a new computer with Linux installed to see what hardware you have within.
The tabs are:
- USB Input;
So, this is quite a comprehensive system information application. This allows the computer user to gather a lot of information about your Linux computer.
We need to add Gambas3 PPA to install I-Nex in Ubuntu and Linux Mint. Use the commands listed below to add both PPAs and install I-Nex in Ubuntu and Linux Mint.
homer@deusexmachina ~ $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:i-nex-development-team/stable homer@deusexmachina ~ $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gambas-team/gambas3 homer@deusexmachina ~ $ sudo apt-get update homer@deusexmachina ~ $ sudo apt-get install i-nex
i-nex in a terminal or look for it under the System Tools menu.
If you cannot get i-nex installed on your system, try cpu-g instead. This displays the same information and actually works very well on Ubuntu 15.04.
Download this here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cpug/?source=typ_redirect. Extract the tarball:
tar -xvf cpu-g-0.9.0.tar.gz
Then enter the directory created.
jason@eyjafjallajkull:~/Downloads$ cd cpu-g-0.9.0/ jason@eyjafjallajkull:~/Downloads/cpu-g-0.9.0$
And you may then run the pre-compiled executable.
jason@eyjafjallajkull:~/Downloads/cpu-g-0.9.0$ ./cpu-g cpu set to #0
