When in doubt, assume I *have* missed something; as the Boomers retire and escape the Gates of Hell, there will be accelerating numbers of people needing the same things -- even when I do know or have seen, as was not the case here. You're a great help!Because of the advice given in response to your original post and wanting a hardware browser myself, I downloaded and installed lshw-gui. A little confusing at first, the display needs to be better configured. Are you clicking on each of the components to get the details ? (i.e. It's parts tree is horizontal rather than vertical)No, in fact I hadn't. I certainly wondered why the display was so sparse, but a horizontal tree is new to me (at least if it's an electronic tree). So I tried lshw, lshw-gui, and lshw-gui &; but no combination of left clicks, right clicks, and hitting enter with either of the latter two got me any more than a tiny yellow box saying "This pane displays .... <whatever>" (I have all machines set to single-click, in case that matters.) And I get that much (more than I had before) just by hovering the cursor.
Mine is set to single-click as well but, in this gui, I had to double-click the bold entries to get down into the meat of the information.
Pretty cool tool.
