    Desktop question.


    I know the image attached is not debian, but the question I have pertains to debian. How does someone display the distro logo like that in their terminal along with their specs. I am dying to figure this out but I am too much of a newbie to figure this out. It probably is something really easy that I am just overlooking. I have tried to read up on this by myself but I was wondering if someone knew.

    tl;dr Desktop customization general

    hi,

    the tool used in the screenshot is called 'screenfetch'. you can use it to display your distro logo and your specifications, for example:

    download screenfetch and place it in your local 'bin' or '/usr/local/bin'
    Code:
    wget -O /usr/local/bin/screenfetch https://raw.github.com/KittyKatt/screenFetch/master/screenfetch-dev
    chmod +x /usr/local/bin/screenfetch
    then simply run:

    Code:
    # root@dev [07:36:39] ~
    >> screenfetch
             _,met$$$$$gg.           root@dev
          ,g$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$P.        OS: Debian 7.1 wheezy
        ,g$$P""       """Y$$.".      Kernel: i686 Linux 2.6.32
       ,$$P'              `$$$.      Uptime: 15d 2h 13m

       $$P      d$'     ,    $$P     Disk: 4.2G / 31G (14%)
       $$:      $$.   -    ,d$$'     CPU: Intel Xeon CPU E5630 @ 2.533GHz
       $$\;      Y$b._   _,d$P'      RAM: 870MB / 512MB
       Y$$.    `.`"Y$$$$P"'
       `$$b      "-.__
        `Y$$
         `Y$$.
           `$$b.
             `Y$$b.
                `"Y$b._
                    `""""
    you can execute

    Code:
    screenfetch --help
    to find more options about this tool. there are also other tools like this for example 'archey' which is written in python.
