That's fine for those times when you need a user to run Inxi with particular command-line switches so it will gather particular data that you need to help them with their particular problem (particular particular particular!
) but for getting just the basic information about their system when people post seeking help, Mint's forum's workflow goes like this:
Me: "I can't make such-and-such work."
(Hours later as I'm in a different time zone than most of you)
You: "Please run Inxi -Fxzr in a console window and copy/paste the results."
(The next day: I have to sleep sometime)
Me: "Here you go."
(Hours later again)
You: "Try this, and next time please wrap yout Inxi info inside of code tags."
(Mint's forum has a notice at the top of every help board to please run System Information in the menu and include its results when asking for help)
Me: (Reads the notice, runs System Information from the menu then posts)
Me: "I can't make such-and-such work. Here's my system info." (pastes from the clipboard)
You: "Try this."
See how much faster that is? It saves people a lot of time in fixing their problems (in my case next day vs. same day), and people don't have to remember the -Fxzr switches nor how to copy from within the terminal (shift+ctl+c instead of just ctl+c.) You'll get more people posting basic system info when they first ask for help if you make it easier for them to do so, and that saves your time as well as opposed to having to ask them for that information each and every time then wait for them to provide it. Also you may be dealing with someone who's grown up using a GUI OS and has never used a command-line in his life. That would add even more back-and-forth turnaround time before you can begin to help them if you first have to explain what a console is and how to run commands and copy the results within it, then paste it in their post inside BBcode's code tags. You may as well make Mint more newbie-friendly and help folks out by just giving them a singe menu item to click instead of giving them arcane commands to type, copy and paste, at least to get the basic initial Inxi -Fxzr information about their system from them. From what I've seen here in the forum, most of the time that's all the information that's required anyway and you can always ask them to do other Inxi commands in those few, special situations where it's needed.
(I can't remember how many times I've had to search this forum for "Inxi" to get those command-line switches prior to posting for help or advice here. How nice it would be to just click the Mint icon/System/System Information then just do a ctl+c in my post and have my info be pasted there, already pre-wrapped inside of code tags! It's just a little thing but it would make getting help with Mint easier and would add a bit of polish and user-friendliness to the distro, Little touches like this are what make distros more popular (or less popular), everything else being equal.)
