screenFetch in CentOS

screenfetch-centos-unixtutorialMany of you liked the screenFetch command I have introduced a few weeks back. It’s a great utility native to most Debian based distros.

However, there’s a slight problem with CentOS and RedHat distros: they don’t have it in their standard repositories.

Turns out, it’s very easy to get it installed using git:

[email protected]:~ $ git clone https://github.com/KittyKatt/screenFetch.git
Cloning into ‘screenFetch’…
remote: Enumerating objects: 3873, done.
remote: Total 3873 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0), pack-reused 3873
Receiving objects: 100% (3873/3873), 3.98 MiB | 3.06 MiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (2234/2234), done.
[email protected]:~ $ cd screenFetch/
[email protected]:~/screenFetch $ chmod a+rx screenfetch-dev

That’s it, now you can run ./screenfetch-dev to get the result shown at the top of this post!
