Thanks pcpunk

Which applications are you referring to?

HardInfo is the most popular Linux alternative to Speccy on alternativeTo. It's available in the Mint Software Centre.

You might have come across HardInfo in Puppy, as it comes already installed in it.

Thanks Al, I used that before but couldn't remember the name.  I was also looking for something that could be published like Speccy to my Signature.

You could try typing

inxi -Fx

or

archey

Into terminal. Then take a screenshot, then upload the image to a hosting site and adding the link to your sig. Look at my signature.
 
 
Here are mine.
 
My PC specs 
 
or
 
Nick's PC specifacations 
 

 
Install Archey:

    sudo apt-get install lsb-release scrot
    wget http://github.com/downloads/djmelik/archey/archey-0.2.8.deb
    sudo dpkg -i archey-0.2.8.deb

Okay Nick, not as nice as Speccy but something.  inxi -Fx did not show my swap for some reason.

 

I thought you didn't use swap Nick, I see 8.46 LOL.  Maybe that is old.  O-boy I need windows just for speccy lol.

 

I guess I could use Wine if I really wanted it, which I might just for that and then uninstall.  If I understand right Wine is a security threat while it is installed, not necessarily just while it is in use right?

if you type in 

inxi -h

that will give you a whole lot of extra info you can get......by adding "l"  you will get the Partition  info as well

 

i use


inxi -Fxzl

I also found  this  recently but it may not be in Ubuntus repos it is  a graphical display  but give a lot of information its called  "I-Nex"

Good to see you spotted that PC. I have been messing around with stuff and created a swap partition to see just how much my PC can run without using swap.

I guessed as much Nick, always testing things a.  Seems as though you are a kid in a candy store, good for you!  I remember seeing a gparted of your partitions a while back and swap was quite big from what I remember.

 

Thanks shadow-warrior I will try that also!
