Latest version now: 1.4.86
New options: -n
shows an additional line of information for user network cards, the interface id, like: eth0, status up/down, speed, mac address, duplex mode.
-n triggers -N and -x as well, so: inxi -n
shows all the network card output.
shows all the network card output and the internet connection information as well. That part has also been cleaned up and made more consistent.
This can help in especially non X situations to verify what actual connection is present, if any.
This is a new feature so it probably won't work for all scenarios, especially usb wifi I suspect, but we'll get that debugged as we get more user feedback, that's why this release is 1.4.86, not 1.5.0
Also, -Gx now shows the graphics card pci busID, also useful for debugging misconfigured xorg.conf files or whatever.
A new option allows users to pick from one of about 30 color schemes, this is started by running inxi in terminal, with -c 94 to 99 options, like so: inxi -c 98
This runs what is basically a color picker for the schemes, then writes them to user config files.
- Code: Select all
-c Available color schemes. Scheme number is required. Color selectors run a color selector option
prior to inxi starting which lets you set the config file value for the selection.
Supported color schemes: 0-30 Example: inxi -c 11
Supported color selectors: 94 (console, no X); 95 (terminal, X); 96 (irc, X);
97 (irc, X, in terminal); 98 (irc, no X); 99 (global).
-n Show Advanced Network card information. Same as -Nnx. Shows interface, speed, mac id, state, etc.
I also fixed the inxi updater, inxi -U, now it's more robust and less prone to failures, and has better exit error messages to let the user know what to do to fix the problem depending on the cause.
In terms of how distros could use these new config options, if you set the desired defaults for example white background/black text virtual terminal in /etc/inxi.conf all the users would see that the way they wanted.
User config files, in $HOME/.inxi/inxi.conf, always override script defaults and settings in /etc/inxi.conf by the way.
So there's 5 possible custom settings per user, or one global default per user now possible. I'm hoping to get some more feedback on the color schemes I've picked, I tested them in dark, light, dark or light, to see how they would look, for quite a while, but they could probably be improved, though I don't see it being a good idea having that much more than the present number of them total.
