       inxi  - Command line system information script for console and IRC


       inxi - Single line, short form. Very basic output.

       inxi [-AbBCdDfFGhHiIlmMnNopPrRsSuw]  [-c NUMBER] [-v  NUMBER]

       inxi [-t (c or m or cm or mc NUMBER)] [-x -OPTION(s)] [-xx -OPTION(s)] [-xxx -OPTION(s)]

       inxi [--help] [--recommends] [--version] [-@ NUMBER]


       inxi is a command line system information script built for for console and IRC. It is also
       used for forum technical support, as a debugging tool, to quickly  ascertain  user  system
       configuration  and  hardware.  inxi  shows  system  hardware, CPU, drivers, Xorg, Desktop,
       Kernel, GCC version(s),  Processes,  RAM  usage,  and  a  wide  variety  of  other  useful

       inxi  output  varies  between  CLI  and  IRC,  with some default filters and color options
       applied to IRC use. Script colors can be turned off if desired with -c 0, or changed using
       the -c color options listed in the OPTIONS section below.


       In  order  to  maintain  basic privacy and security, inxi filters out automatically on IRC
       things like your network card mac address, WAN and LAN IP, your /home  username  directory
       in partitions, and a few other things.

       Because inxi is often used on forums for support, you can also trigger this filtering with
       the -z option (-Fz, for example). To override the IRC filter, you can use the  -Z  option.
       This  can  be  useful  to  debug  network  connection issues online in a private chat, for


       Options can be combined if they do not conflict. Either  group  the  letters  together  or
       separate them.

       Letters with numbers can have no gap or a gap at your discretion unless using

       For example: inxi -AG or inxi -A -G or inxi -c10


       -A     Show Audio/sound card information.

       -b     Shows basic output, short form (previously -d). Same as: inxi -v 2

       -B     Shows Battery data, charge, condition, plus extra information (if battery present).
              Uses /sys or for BSDs, dmidecode. dmidecode does not have  very  much  information,
              and  none  about  current battery state/charge/voltage. Supports multiple batteries
              when using /sys data.

              Note on the charge item, the output shows the current charge, and  the  percent  of
              the available capacity, which can be less than the original design capacity. In the
              following example, the actual current capacity of the battery is 22.2  Wh,  so  the
              charge shows what percent of the current capacity is charged.

              For example: 20.1 Wh 95.4%

              The condition item shows the current available capacity / original design capacity,
              then the percentage  of  original  capacity  available  in  the  battery.   In  the
              following example, the battery capacity is only 61% of it's original amount.

              For example: 22.2/36.4 Wh 61%

       -c     [0-32] Available color schemes. Scheme number is required.

              Supported color schemes: 0-42

       -c     [94-99]

              Color  selectors run a color selector option  prior to inxi starting which lets you
              set the config file value for the selection.

              Color selectors for each type display (NOTE: irc and global only  show  safe  color

       -c 94  - Console, out of X.

       -c 95  - Terminal, running in X - like xTerm.

       -c 96  - Gui IRC, running in X - like Xchat, Quassel, Konversation etc.

       -c 97  - Console IRC running in X - like irssi in xTerm.

       -c 98  - Console IRC not in  X.

       -c 99  - Global - Overrides/removes all settings.

              Setting specific color type removes the global color selection.

       -C     Show  full  CPU  output,  including  per  CPU  clockspeed  and  CPU  max  speed (if
              available).  If max speed data present, shows (max) in short output formats  (inxi,
              inxi -b) if CPU actual speed matches CPU max speed. If CPU max speed does not match
              CPU actual speed, shows both actual and max speed information.  See -x and -xx  for
              more options.

              CPU description includes technical CPU(s) description: (-MT-MCP)

              * MT - Multi/Hyper Threaded CPUs, more than 1 thread per core. (Previously HT)

              * MCP - Multi Core Processor (More than 1 core per CPU)

              * SMP - Symmetric Multi Processing (More than 1 physical CPUs)

              * UP - Uni (single core) Processor

       -d     Shows  optical drive data. Same as -Dd. With -x, adds features line to output. Also
              shows floppy disks if present. Note that  there  is  no  current  way  to  get  any
              information  about the floppy device that I am aware of, so it will simply show the
              floppy id, without any extra data. -xx adds a few more features.

       -D     Show full hard Disk info, not only model, ie: /dev/sda  ST380817AS  80.0GB.   Shows
              disk  space  total + used percentage.  The disk used percentage includes space used
              by swap partition(s), since those are not usable for data storage. Note  that  with
              RAID  disks, the percentage will be wrong since the total is computed from the disk
              sizes, but the used is computed from mounted partition used percentages. This small
              defect  may get corrected in the future. Also, unmounted partitions are not counted
              in disk use percentages since inxi has no access to that data.

       -f     Show all cpu flags used, not just the short  list.  Not  shown  with  -F  to  avoid
              spamming. ARM cpus: show features items.

       -F     Show  Full  output  for inxi. Includes all Upper Case line letters, plus -s and -n.
              Does not show extra verbose options like -d -f -l -m -o -p -r -t -u -x  unless  you
              use those arguments in the command, like: inxi -Frmxx

       -G     Show Graphic card information. Card(s), Display Server (vendor and version number),
              for example:

              Display Server: Xorg 1.15.1

              as  well  as  screen  resolution(s),   OpenGL   renderer,   OpenGL   core   profile
              version/OpenGL version.

              If  detected  (currently  only  available if on a desktop: will attempt to show the
              server type, ie, x11, wayland, mir. When xorg is present, its  version  information
              will  show  after  the  server  type  in  parentheses.  Future  versions  will show
              compositor information as well.

       -h     The help menu. Features dynamic sizing to fit  into  terminal  window.  Set  script
              global COLS_MAX_CONSOLE if you want a different default value, or use -y <width> to
              temporarily override the defaults or actual window width.

       --help Same as -h

       -H     The help menu, plus developer options. Do not use dev options in normal operation!

       -i     Show Wan IP address, and shows local interfaces (requires ifconfig  or  ip  network
              tool).  Same  as  -Nni.  Not shown with -F for user security reasons, you shouldn't
              paste your local/wan IP. Shows both IPv4 and IPv6 link IP address.

       -I     Show Information: processes, uptime, memory, irc client (or shell type  if  run  in
              shell,  not  irc),  inxi  version.  See  -x  and  -xx  for  extra information (init
              type/version, runlevel).

       -l     Show partition labels. Default: short partition -P. For full -p  output,  use:  -pl
              (or -plu).

       -m     Memory  (RAM)  data.  Does  not  show with  -b or  -F unless you use -m explicitly.
              Ordered by system board physical system memory array(s) (Array-[number] capacity:),
              and  individual  memory  devices  (Device-[number]).  Physical memory array(s) data
              shows array capacity,  and  number  of  devices  supported,  and  Error  Correction
              information.  Devices  shows locator data (highly variable in syntax), size, speed,
              type (eg: type: DDR3).

              Note that -m uses dmidecode, which must be run as root (or start inxi  with  sudo),
              unless  you  figure  out how to set up sudo to permit dmidecode to read /dev/mem as
              user. Note that speed will not show if No Module Installed is found in  size.  This
              will also turn off Bus Width data output if it is null.

              If  memory  information was found, and if the -I line or the -tm item have not been
              triggered, will also print the ram used/total.

              Because dmidecode data is extremely unreliable, inxi will try to make best guesses.
              If  you  see  (check)  after  capacity  number,  you  should check it for sure with
              specifications. (est) is slightly more reliable, but you  should  still  check  the
              real  specifications  before buying ram. Unfortunately there is nothing inxi can do
              to get truly reliable data about the system ram, maybe one day the kernel devs will
              put  this  data into /sys, and make it real data, taken from the actual system, not
              dmi data. For most people, the data will be right, but a significant percentage  of
              users will have either wrong max module size, if present, or max capacity.

       -M     Show  machine data. Device, Motherboard, Bios, and if present, System Builder (Like
              Lenovo).  Older systems/kernels without the required /sys data  can  use  dmidecode
              instead,  run  as  root. If using dmidecode, may also show bios revision as well as
              version. -! 33 can force use of dmidecode data instead of /sys. Will  also  attempt
              to  show  if the system was booted by BIOS, UEFI, or UEFI [Legacy]. The last one is
              legacy BIOS boot mode in a systemboard using UEFI but booted as BIOS/Legacy.

              Device requires either /sys or dmidecode. Note that  'other-vm?'  is  a  type  that
              means  it's  usually  a  vm, but inxi failed to detect which type, or to positively
              confirm which vm it is. Primary vm identification is  via  systemd-detect-virt  but
              fallback  tests  that should support some BSDs as well are used. Less commonly used
              or harder to detect VMs may not be correctly detected, if you get a  wrong  output,
              post an issue and we'll get it fixed if possible.

              Due to unreliable vendor data, device will show: desktop; laptop; notebook; server;
              blade plus some obscure stuff that inxi is unlikely to ever run on.

       -n     Show Advanced Network card information. Same as -Nn. Shows  interface,  speed,  mac
              id, state, etc.

       -N     Show Network card information. With -x, shows PCI BusID, Port number.

       -o     Show unmounted partition information (includes UUID and LABEL if available).  Shows
              file system type if you have file installed, if you are root OR if you  have  added
              to /etc/sudoers (sudo v. 1.7 or newer):

              <username> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/file (sample)

              Does  not  show  components  (partitions  that create the md raid array) of md-raid

       -p     Show full partition information (-P plus all other detected partitions).

       -P     Show Partition information (shows what -v 4 would show, but  without  extra  data).
              Shows, if detected: / /boot /home /opt /tmp /usr /var /var/tmp /var/log.  Use -p to
              see all mounted partitions.

       -r     Show distro repository data. Currently supported repo types:

              APK (Alpine Linux + derived versions)

              APT (Debian, Ubuntu + derived versions)

              PACMAN (Arch Linux + derived versions)

              PISI (Pardus + derived versions)

              PORTAGE (Gentoo, Sabayon + derived versions)

              PORTS (OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD + derived OS types)

              SLACKPKG (Slackware + derived versions)

              URPMQ (Mandriva, Mageia + derived versions)

              YUM/ZYPP (Fedora, Redhat, Suse + derived versions)

              (as distro data is collected more will be added. If your's is missing  please  show
              us how to get this information and we'll try to add it.)

       -R     Show  RAID data. Shows RAID devices, states, levels, and components, and extra data
              with -x / -xx.

              md-raid: If device is resyncing, shows resync progress line as well.

              Note: Only md-raid and ZFS are supported. Other software raid types could be added,
              but  only  if users supply all data required, and if the software raid actually can
              be made to give the required output.

              Note: due to the complexity, only one raid type per system is  supported.   Md-raid
              overrides ZFS if no ZFS was found.

              Checks inxi application dependencies + recommends, and directories, then shows what
              package(s) you need to install to add support for that feature.

       -s     Show sensors output (if sensors installed/configured): mobo/cpu/gpu temp;  detected
              fan  speeds. Gpu temp only for Fglrx/Nvidia drivers. Nvidia shows screen number for
              > 1 screens.

       -S     Show System information: host name, kernel, desktop environment (if in X),  distro.
              With -xx show dm - or startx - (only shows if present and running if out of X), and
              if in X, with -xxx show more desktop info, like shell/panel etc.

       -t     [c or m or cm or mc NUMBER] Show processes. If followed by numbers 1-20, shows that
              number of processes for each type (default: 5; if in irc, max: 5)

              Make sure to have no space between letters and numbers (-t cm10 - right, -t cm 10 -

       -t c   - cpu only. With -x, shows also memory for that process on same line.

       -t m   - memory only. With -x, shows also cpu for that process on same line.   If  the  -I
              line  is not triggered, will also show the system used/total ram information in the
              first Memory line of output.

       -t cm  - cpu+memory. With -x, shows also cpu or memory for that process on same line.

       -u     Show partition UUIDs. Default: short partition -P. For full -p output, use: -pu (or

       -U     Note - Maintainer may have disabled this function.

              If inxi -h has no listing for -U then it's disabled.

              Auto-update  script.  Note:  if  you installed as root, you must be root to update,
              otherwise  user  is  fine.  Also   installs   /   updates   this   Man   Page   to:
              /usr/local/share/man/man1 (if /usr/local/share/man/ exists AND there is no inxi man
              page in  /usr/share/man/man1,  otherwise  it  goes  to  /usr/share/man/man1).  This
              requires that you be root to write to that directory.

              Previous   versions   of  inxi  manually  installed  man  page  were  installed  to
              /usr/share/man/man1. If you want the man page to go into  /usr/local/share/man/man1
              move it there and inxi will update to that path from then on.

       -V     inxi version information. Prints information then exits.

              same as -V

       -v     Script  verbosity  levels.  Verbosity  level number is required. Should not be used
              with -b or -F.

              Supported levels: 0-7 Examples : inxi -v 4  or  inxi -v4

       -v 0   - Short output, same as: inxi

       -v 1   - Basic verbose, -S + basic CPU (cores, model,  clock  speed,  and  max  speed,  if
              available) + -G + basic Disk + -I.

       -v 2   -  Adds  networking  card (-N), Machine (-M) data, Battery (-B) (if available), and
              shows basic hard disk data (names only). Same as: inxi -b

       -v 3   - Adds advanced CPU (-C); network (-n) data; triggers -x advanced data option.

       -v 4   - Adds partition size/filled data (-P) for (if present): / /home /var/ /boot  Shows
              full disk data (-D)

       -v 5   - Adds audio card (-A); memory/ram (-m);sensors (-s), partition label (-l) and UUID
              (-u), short form of optical drives.

       -v 6   - Adds full partition data (-p), unmounted partition data (-o), optical drive  data
              (-d); triggers -xx extra data option.

       -v 7   - Adds network IP data (-i); triggers -xxx

       -w     Adds  weather line. Note, this depends on an unreliable api so it may not always be
              working  in  the  future.  To  get  weather  for  an  alternate  location,  use  -W
              <location_string>. See also -x, -xx, -xxx option.  Please note, your distribution's
              maintainer may chose to disable this feature, so if -w or  -W  don't  work,  that's

       -W <location_string>
              Get  weather/time  for  an  alternate location. Accepts postal/zip code, city,state
              pair, or  latitude,longitude.  Note:  city/country/state  names  must  not  contain
              spaces.  Replace  spaces with '+' sign. No spaces around , (comma).  Use only ascii
              letters in city/state/country names, sorry.

              Examples: -W 95623 OR -W Boston,MA OR -W45.5234,-122.6762 OR -W new+york,ny  OR  -W

       -y <integer >= 80>
              This is an absolute width override which sets the output line width max.  Overrides
              COLS_MAX_IRC / COLS_MAX_CONSOLE globals, or the actual widths of the  terminal.  If
              used  with  -h  or  -c  94-99, put -y option first or the override will be ignored.
              Cannot be used with --help/--version/--recommends type long options. Example:  inxi
              -y 130 -Fxx

       -z     Adds security filters for IP addresses, Mac, location (-w), and user home directory
              name. Default on for irc clients.

       -Z     Absolute override for output filters. Useful for debugging networking issues in irc
              for example.


       These  options  are  for long form only, and can be triggered by one or more -x, like -xx.
       Alternately, the -v options trigger them in the following way: -v 3 adds  -x;  -v  6  adds
       -xx; -v 7 adds -xxx

       These extra data triggers can be useful for getting more in-depth data on various options.
       Can be added to any long form option list, like: -bxx or -Sxxx

       There are 3 extra data levels: -x; -xx; and -xxx

       The following shows which lines / items get extra information with each extra data level.

       -x -A  - Adds version/port(s)/driver version (if available) for each Audio device.

       -x -A  - Shows PCI Bus ID/Usb ID number of each Audio device.

       -x -B  - Shows Vendor/Model, battery status (if battery present).

       -x -C  - bogomips on CPU (if available); CPU Flags (short list).

       -x -C  - CPU microarchitecture + revision (like Sandy Bridge, K8, ARMv8, P6, and  so  on).
              Only  shows  if  detected.  Newer  microarchitectures will have to be added as they
              appear, and require the CPU family id and model id.

              Example: arch: Sandy Bridge rev.2, arch: K8 rev.F+

       -x -d  - Adds items to features line of optical drive; adds rev version to optical drive.

       -x -D  - Hdd temp with disk data if you have hddtemp installed, if you are root OR if  you
              have added to /etc/sudoers (sudo v. 1.7 or newer):

              <username> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/hddtemp (sample)

       -x -G  - Direct rendering status for Graphics.

       -x -G  - (for single gpu, nvidia driver) screen number gpu is running on.

       -x -G  - Shows PCI Bus ID/Usb ID number of each Graphics card.

       -x -i  -  Show  IP  v6  additional  scope  data,  like  Global,  Site,  Temporary for each

              Note that there is no way I am aware of to filter out the deprecated  IP  v6  scope
              site/global  temporary  addresses  from  the output of ifconfig. ip tool shows that

              ip-v6-temporary - (ip tool only), scope global temporary.  Scope  global  temporary
              deprecated is not shown

              ip-v6-global  - scope global (ifconfig will show this for all types, global, global
              temporary, and global temporary deprecated, ip shows it only for global)

              ip-v6-link - scope link (ip/ifconfig) - default for -i.

              ip-v6-site - scope site (ip/ifconfig). This has been deprecated in IPv6, but  still
              exists.  ifconfig  may  show  multiple  site  values, as with global temporary, and
              global temporary deprecated.

              ip-v6-unknown - unknown scope

       -x -I  - Show current init system (and init rc in some cases,  like  OpenRC).   With  -xx,
              shows init/rc version number, if available.  -x -I - Show system GCC, default. With

       -x -m  -  Shows  memory  device  Part  Number  (part:). Useful to order new or replacement
              memory sticks etc. Usually part numbers are unique, particularly  if  you  use  the
              word  memory  in the search as well. With -xx, shows Serial Number and Manufactorer
              as well.

       -x -m  - If present, shows maximum memory module/device size in the Array line.  Only some
              systems will have this data available.

       -x -N  - Adds version/port(s)/driver version (if available) for each Network card;

       -x -N  - Shows PCI Bus ID/Usb ID number of each Network card.

              on drives (like 5/5); blocks; chunk size; bitmap (if present). Resync  line,  shows
              blocks synced/total blocks.

              -  zfs-raid:  Shows raid array full size; available size; portion allocated to RAID
              (ie, not available as storage)."

       -x -S  - Desktop toolkit if available (GNOME/XFCE/KDE only); Kernel gcc version.

       -x -t  - Adds memory use output to cpu (-xt c), and cpu use to memory (-xt m). For  -xt  c
              will  also  show  system Used/Total ram data if -t m (memory) is not used AND -I is
              not triggered.

       -x -w / -W
              - Adds wind speed and time zone (-w only), and makes output go to two lines.

       -xx -A - Adds vendor:product ID of each Audio device.

       -xx -B - Adds serial number, voltage (if available).

              Note that volts shows the data (if available) as:  Voltage  Now  /  Minimum  Design

       -xx -C - Shows Minimum CPU speed (if available).

              For nonfree drivers, the core version and  compatibility  versions  are  the  same.

              3.3 Mesa 11.2.0 (compat-v: 3.0)

       -xx -I - Show init type version number (and rc if present).

       -xx -I - Adds other detected installed gcc versions to primary gcc output (if present).

       -xx -I -  Show,  if  detected,  system default runlevel. Supports Systemd/Upstart/Sysvinit
              type defaults. Note that not all systemd systems have the  default  value  set,  in
              that case, if present, it will use the data from /etc/inittab.

       -xx -I -  Adds  parent  program  (or  tty) that started shell, if not IRC client, to shell

       -xx -m - Shows memory device Manufacturer and Serial Number.

       -xx -m - Single/double bank memory, if data is found. Note, this may not be 100% right all
              of  the  time  since it depends on the order that data is found in dmidecode output
              for type 6 and type 17.

       -xx -M - Adds chassis information, if any data for that is available. Also shows BIOS  rom

       -xx -@ <11-14>
              - Automatically uploads debugger data tar.gz file to

       -xxx -B
              -  Adds  battery  chemistry  (like:  Li-ion),  cycles  (NOTE: there appears to be a
              problem with the Linux kernel obtaining the cycle  count,  so  this  almost  always
              shows 0. There's nothing that can be done about this glitch, the data is simply not
              available as of  2016-04-18),  location  (only  available  from  dmidecode  derived

       -xxx -m
              -  Memory bus width: primary bus width, and if present, total width. eg: bus width:
              64 bit (total: 72 bits). Note that total / data widths are mixed  up  sometimes  in
              dmidecode  output,  so  inxi  will take the larger value as total if present. If no
              total width data is found, then inxi will not show that item.

       -xxx -m
              - Adds device Type Detail, eg: DDR3 (Synchronous).

       -xxx -m
              - If present, will add memory module voltage. Only some systems will have this data

       -xxx -S
              -  Adds, if run in X, shell/panel type info to Desktop information, if present.  If
              none, shows  nothing.  Supports  some  current  desktop  extras  like  gnome-panel,
              lxde-panel, and others. Added mainly for Mint support.

       -xxx -w / -W
              - Adds location (city state country), weather observation time, altitude of system.
              If wind chill, heat index, or dew point are available, shows that data as well.


       -! 31  Turns off hostname in System line. Useful,  with  -z,  for  anonymizing  your  inxi
              output for posting on forums or IRC.

       -! 32  Turns  on  hostname  in  System  line.  Overrides  inxi config file value (if set):

       -! 33  Force use of dmidecode. This will override /sys data in some lines, like -M.

       -! 34  Skip SSL certificate checks for all downloader actions (-U, -w,  -W,  -i).  Use  if
              your  system  does  not have current SSL certificate lists, or if you have problems
              making a connection for any reason. Only works with wget,  curl,  and  fetch.  This
              must go before the other options you use.

       -! 40  Will  try  to  get  display  data  out  of  X (does not usually work as root user).
              Default gets display info from display :0. If you use this format: -! 40:1 it would
              get  it  from  display 1 instead, or any display you specify as long as there is no
              space between -! 40 and the :[display id].

              Note that in some cases, -! 40 will cause inxi to hang endlessly when  running  the
              option  in  console  with  Intel  graphics  (confirmed).  Other  free  drivers like
              nouveau/ati unknown yet. It may be that this is  a  bug  with  the  intel  graphics
              driver, more information required.

              You  can  test this easily by running this command out of X/display server: glxinfo
              -display :0

              If it hangs, -! 40 will not work.

       -! 41  Bypass Curl as a downloader option. Priority is:  Curl,  Wget,  Fetch,  HTTP::Tiny,
              OpenBSD only: ftp

       -! 42  Bypass  Fetch  as  a  downloader option.Priority is: Curl, Wget, Fetch, HTTP::Tiny,
              OpenBSD only: ftp

       -! 43  Bypass Wget as a downloader option. Priority is:  Curl,  Wget,  Fetch,  HTTP::Tiny,
              OpenBSD only: ftp

       -! 44  Bypass  Curl,  Fetch,  and  Wget  as  downloader options. This basically forces the
              downloader selection to use Perl 5.x HTTP::Tiny, which is in  general  slower  than
              Curl or Wget but it may help bypass issues with downloading.


       -%     Overrides defective or corrupted data.

       -@     Triggers  debugger  output. Requires debugging level 1-14 (8-10 - logging of data).
              Less than 8 just triggers inxi debugger output on screen.

       -@     [1-7] - On screen debugger output.

       -@ 8   - Basic logging. Check /home/yourname/.inxi/inxi*.log

       -@ 9   - Full file/sys info logging.

       -@ 10  - Color logging.

       -@ <11-14>

              to file: To automatically upload debugger data tar.gz file to

              inxi -xx@ <11-14>

              For alternate ftp upload locations: Example:

              inxi -! -xx@ 14

       -@ 11  - With tree traversal data file read of /sys, and other system data.

       -@ 12  - With xorg conf and log data, xrandr, xprop, xdpyinfo, glxinfo etc.

       -@ 13  - With data from dev, disks, partitions, etc.

       -@ 14  - Everything, full data collection.


       BitchX, Gaim/Pidgin, ircII, Irssi, Konversation, Kopete, KSirc, KVIrc, Weechat, and Xchat.
       Plus any others that are capable of displaying either built in or external script output.


       To trigger inxi output in your IRC client, pick  the  appropriate  method  from  the  list

       Xchat, irssi
              (and  many other IRC clients) /exec -o inxi [options] If you leave off the -o, only
              you will see the output on your local IRC client.

              /cmd inxi [options]

              To run inxi in konversation as a native script if your distribution or inxi package
              did  not do this for you, create this symbolic link [the first works for KDE 4, the
              second for KDE 5]:

              ln -s /usr/local/bin/inxi /usr/share/kde4/apps/konversation/scripts/inxi

              ln -s /usr/local/bin/inxi /usr/share/konversation/scripts/inxi

              If inxi is somewhere else,  change  the  path  /usr/local/bin  to  wherever  it  is

              If  you  are using KDE/QT 5, then you may also need to add the following to get the
              konversation /inxi command to work:

              ln -s /usr/share/konversation /usr/share/apps/

              Then you can start inxi directly, like this:

              /inxi [options]

              NEW: /exec -o inxi [options]

              OLD: /shell -o inxi [options]

              Newer (2014 and later) WeeChats work pretty much the same now as other console  IRC
              clients,  with  /exec  -o  inxi  [options].  Also,  newer WeeChats have dropped the
              -curses part of their program name, ie: weechat instead of weechat-curses.


              Before WeeChat can run  external  scripts  like  inxi,  you  need  to  install  the
              weechat-plugins  package.  This is automatically installed for Debian users.  Next,
              if you don't already have it, you need to  install,  which  is  a  python

              In     a     web     browser,     Click     on     the    download    button    at:

              Make the script executable by

              chmod +x

              Move it to your home folder:  /.weechat/python/autoload/  then  logout,  and  start
              WeeChat with


              Top  of  screen  should  say  what  pythons scripts have loaded, and should include
              shell. Then to run inxi, you would enter a command like this:

              /shell -o inxi -bx

              If you leave off the -o, only you will  see  the  output  on  your  local  weechat.
              WeeChat users may also like to check out the


       inxi will read the following configuration/initialization files in the following order:

       /etc/inxi.conf   is   the   default  configurations.  These  can  be  overridden  by  user
       configurations found in one of the following locations (inxi will place  its  config  file
       using the following precedence as well, that is, if $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not empty, it will
       go there, else if $HOME/.conf/inxi.conf exists, it will go there, and as a  last  default,
       the legacy location is used:

       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/inxi.conf or $HOME/.conf/inxi.conf or $HOME/.inxi/inxi.conf

       See wiki pages for more information on how to set these up:


       Please report bugs using the following resources.

       You may be asked to run the inxi debugger tool which will upload a data dump of all system
       files for use in debugging inxi. These data dumps are very important since they provide us
       with all the real system data inxi uses to parse out its report.

       inxi is is a fork of locsmif's largely unmaintained yet very clever, infobash script.

       inxi version: Copyright (C) 2008-17 Harald Hope

       Initial CPU logic, konversation version  logic,  occasional  maintenance  fixes,  and  the
       initial tool for /sys parsing (deprecated but still very much appreciated for all
       the valuable debugger data it helped generate): Scott Rogers

       Further fixes (listed as known):

       Horst Tritremmel <hjt at>

       Steven Barrett (aka: damentz) - usb audio patch; swap percent used patch.

       Jarett.Stevens - dmidecode -M patch for older systems with no /sys

       And a special thanks to the nice people at channels  #linux-smokers-club  and
       #smxi, who  all really have to be considered to be co-developers because of their non-stop
       enthusiasm and willingness to provide real time testing and debugging of inxi development.

       A further thanks to the Siduction forum members, who have helped get some features working
       by providing a lot of datasets that revealed possible variations, particularly for the ram
       -m option.

       Further thanks to the various inxi  package  maintainers,  distro  support  people,  forum
       moderators,  and  in  particular,  sys  admins  with their particular issues, which almost
       always help make inxi better, and  any  others  who  contribute  ideas,  suggestions,  and

       Without  a  wide  range  of diverse Linux kernel based Free Desktop systems to test on, we
       could never have gotten inxi to be as reliable and solid as it's turning out to be.

       And of course, big thanks locsmif, who figured out a lot of the core methods,  logic,  and
       tricks used in inxi.
