Hi rajumukherjee and Welcome to Mint Forums,

Not sure what your asking? if you want to know how to acess system information it's a bit different depending upon the Distro and Desktop you are using.

What specific info are you looking for. In many cases the command line is your friend in this matter. but again can you be a bit more specific in your request.

Yeah, I've seen those other threads. So, why post this thread with vague reference to problems -- when you're also posting all those other threads? Posting the same thing more than once is not going to get better responses.
