I-Nex – An Advanced Tool to Collect System/Hardware Information in Linux

It’s very daunting task to extract complete hardware information available on your system. I came across of this tool and found to be the best to get system information like CPU-Z in windows. We TecMint team would like to thank you I-Nex team for wonderful tool wherein we can collect information without typing complex commands at the command line.

Installation of I-Nex in Ubuntu Derivatives

We need to add Gambas3 PPA to install I-Nex in Ubuntu. “Gambas” is a recursive acronym for “Gambas Almost Means Basic“. Use the below commands to add both PPAs and install I-Nex in Ubuntu derivatives.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:i-nex-development-team/stable
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nemh/gambas3
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install i-nex

Remove I-Nex from Ubuntu Derivatives

If in-case, you not liked the tool and want to remove it completely from the system, issue following commands.

$ sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:i-nex-development-team/stable
$ sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:nemh/gambas3
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get purge i-nex


There may be bundle of applications (CPU-G, Hardinfo etc.) available to collect system component details but on my personal opinion i liked I-Nex tool interesting because of simplicity, efficiency and easy-to-use interface.

    Is this available only to Ubuntu or other distros as well. If so, it would have been nice if you mentioned that fact. I can’t find it in Fedora.
