Using GNU/Linux often we should be familiar with the terminal and in many cases this makes our lives easier, but is not always essential. The program we are dealing with in this article is “lshw-gui“, an optional package for “lshw“, the famous tool for listing hardware resources.

The program “lshw-gui” is a simple front-end of lshw, which again adds nothing. Exactly how the package “father” It allows export of the results as text files, XML the HTML and allows control of all devices combined with our computer. With “lshw” everything is under control.

It is present in the repositories of most distributions, and to install it, simply run a:

[root@localhost ~]# yum -y install lshw-gui

if we were to use a Red Hat, or:

[user@localhost ~]$ sudo apt-get  install lshw-gtk

for debian and derivatives.

I have not found lshw-gui on Debian Wheezy.. Instead, I found lshw-gtk (probably the same, I'm installing now)

    You are right, the package for debian and derivatives is called “lshw-gtk”. Thank you for reporting, I corrected.
