‘I-Nex’ is a small, but a very handy utility that shows a comprehensive list of
(and some software) information of your computer. If you are looking for a ‘CPU-Z’ , then this is it!.I first came around it about two years ago and since then it has received few improvements too. The recently released 0.5.8 version for instance, now shows a ‘powered by’ logo that changes according to your GNU/Linux distribution (on Ubuntu, it shows the Ubuntu logo) which is pretty cool.It displays detailed information about the CPU & GPU (here too logos are displayed), Motherboard, Audio, Drives, System (distribution name, desktop, currently used theme, Host name, display manager etc), Kernel, Memory (Total, ,
…), Network ( included) and USB (including hardware details of devices attached).Installing ‘I-Nex’ is really easy in Ubuntu, although the developers suggest that you use the ‘daily builds’, I would advice against it as they tend to be troublesome. So instead, you can use the ‘stable’ PPA that gives you the latest official version of the utility.You can install it on , 12.10 (and 14.04) by entering the below commands (one after the other).sudo apt-add-repository ppa:i-nex-development-team/stablesudo add-apt-repository ppa:nemh/gambas3sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install i-nexOnce done, you should be able to run it from the ‘Dash’.For removing it completely, please use the below commands.sudo add-apt-repository –remove ppa:i-nex-development-team/stablesudo add-apt-repository –remove ppa:nemh/gambas3sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get purge i-nexThat should do it.
