inxi updated

Postby craigevil on Sun Jun 24, 2012 10:59 am

inxi --help
will show you all of the options

-xxx Show extra, extra, extra data (only works with verbose or line output, not short form):
-S - Adds panel/shell information to desktop output, if in X (like gnome-shell, cinnamon, mate-panel).

h2 just added the panel info last night after someone running Mint asked him for it.

inxi -Sr is used often on the Mint/LMDE forums, now with -Sxxxr it will show even more info

$ inxi -Sxxxr

this feature request was based on esteban1uy's
Code: Select all
lsb_release -a;ps -A | egrep '(cinnamon|gnome-shell|gnome-panel|mate-panel|plasma-desktop|xfce4-panel|lxpanel)'
trying to bring it into inxi and with a cleaner output, it looks like h2 succeeded.

regarding the use of
Code: Select all
sudo inxi -U
just a small note: it's the only situation when we need/should use inxi as root, all the other times inxi should be used as user even because (remembering for example the -G output) as root the readings are completely different.

Code: Select all

to make it easy to update, do: chown <username> inxi

Then you do not need to be root to update it.

$ inxi -U

h2 also redid the man page for inxi.

To install it become root then do:
wget -O /usr/share/man/man8/inxi.8.gz http://inxi.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/inxi.8.gz

He is adding it to inxi -U so it should install the next time you update inxi.

To view the man page just do:
man inxi

Hmm... at first I thought I should wait for the inxi package to update in the Mint repo since I have it installed from there.
Then I decided to check the versions and found out that the package version is 1.4.23-1 but inxi -V shows 1.7.28-00 :shock:

Now what should I do? :)

:D meaning that you already updated inxi manually in the meantime and forgot about it :lol:

i spoke with Clem in IRC about updating the inxi pkg in the lmde repo (it's really really outdated) but the installer depends on inxi, so it's not a trivial update (for him > it's perfectly fine for the users)

regarding the main ed. (i guess that ubiquity doesn't need inxi) it will be easier to see an inxi update.

I honestly can't remember I've updated it... my memory must have failed me :D
The only thing I've updated manually is sgfxi, but as I understand from the FAQ, inxi should not update automatically since I use only sgfxi (without smxi).
