*not* just another blog ;)

Let's face it, knowing system stats is an extremely geeky thing. Now we have that out the way, I want to show you neofetch:

neofetch in action on my laptop

Looks pretty, eh?

I'll show you how to install it and also how to make it run every time you open a new terminal, like shown in the screenshot above.

First, let's install neofetch:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install -y neofetch

If that didn't work, try adding the PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dawidd0811/neofetch

Then install:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install -y neofetch

Test that it's working by running neofetch:


You should see something similar to the screenshot, but if your distro happens to be Debian or something else, the logo will change - neat!

Let's make it start every time we open a terminal:

nano ~/.bashrc

Page-down right to the bottom, and add the following line:


Control-X to save, press y to confirm and enter to save the file.

Open a new terminal and you'll be greeted with pretty stats :)
