System info with Ne ofetch
Another popular command-line tool to impress your colleagues and peers is Neofetch. The very narrow purpose of this nifty little tool is to provide all the pertinent system information in an aesthetically pleasing display.
You can install Neofetch from the software repositories of most distributions. The tool can be used to quickly ascertain essential information such as current distribution, host machine, CPU, GPU, total memory, screen resolution, desktop environment, uptime, etc.
Since most of this information can be ascertained separately, the advantage with Neofetch is that it enables you to quickly share all the essential details with a single screenshot.
The cleverly named config.conf configuration file is stored in the ~/.config/neofetch directory. You can enable even more elements such as CPU usage, CPU temperature, IP address and more. You can also configure the tool to display the song you’re listening to, and Neofetch supports a large selection of players such as Banshee, Audacious, Amarok, cmus, mpd, etc.
While the tool displays a logo of your current distribution drawn in ASCII art by default, you can also configure Neofetch to display the current wallpaper, or the specified image in place of the ASCII art. Depending on your terminal application and distribution, you may need to install additional packages such as w3m-img and imagemagic to use this feature.
