Hi,

1) I am a Windows guy
- For Example: When I have a Windows XP workstation
- I want to know how much RAM (or memory) in this machine
- I will "right-click" my computer, Select Properties; and under the general tab, I will see the RAM

2)I now have a Linux Workstation (Ubuntu 10.04.3)
- I want to know how much RAM in this machine

3) The Goal: To find out (per GUI) how much RAM that this Ubuntu linux workstation has?

4) Would you somebody show me the PATH (to achieve the goal in # 3)?

5) Thanks

Hi,

this article explains it all:

http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-see-your-system-information-in-ubuntu-10-10-maverick-using-sysinfo.html

Basically you'll have to install sysinfo via Software Center and apt-get and you'll find under
applications --> system tool --> sysinfo a new box called sysinfo which will show the information you desire.

Have fun!

Hi wmp,

1) This sysinfo is a kind 3rd party software ...

2) So by DEFAULT, ubuntu does not have the capability that I describe it in my question above?

It's not third party, it's Open Source just like Ubuntu itself, and it is in the Ubuntu software repository. So it's in a way part of Ubuntu. It just doesn't get installed by default, that's all.
Click "More Info" in the Software Center for details.

Practically everything you use, including your GUI desktop, and everything on it, is all 3rd party software.
