Today i came across this interesting post about Ubuntu Installation Report Generator so i thought of giving it a try.Installation Report Generator is a small application, developed with Python + GTK, which helps user to gather informations about his hardware and software configuration, in order prepare an installation report.

Install Ubuntu Installation Report Generator

Open your /etc/apt/sources.list file

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

add the following lines

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/irgenerator-developers/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/irgenerator-developers/ubuntu hardy main

Save and exit the file

Now you need to update the source list using the following command

sudo sudo apt-get update

Install using the following application

sudo apt-get install installation-report-generator

Using Application

You can open this application from System--->Administration--->Installation Report Generator.If you don't see just logout and login back.

Once it opens you should see similar to the following welcome screen click on forward

Enter your laptop details click on forward

Select your ubuntu version click on forward

Configuration summary click ok

Report generate completed click on forward

Report details

From my experience this need to be more polished for all types of hardware and more detailed report in clear format.Just give it a try hope you will get some information from this.

    Good software. Why Canonical not use this software to generate report and send to Ubuntu official wiki page? This send to Ubuntu-it.org

    I don’t get the point of this, because there is already a tool, “Hardware Testing”, that reports hardware information.

    And btw less terminal tinkering would be nice… even an apt: link for the lazy.
