When have you installed your distro??!

Welcome back dears in this new tip on LINUXATION. As you see in the title, the question today is: When have you installed your distro?
In a simple command line we can know the date and the time we installed our GNU/Linux distribution at.
Open the terminal/konsole emulator and type:
ls -l /var/log/installer/syslog
and press [Enter]. A message will be printed to you with the date and the time. For me, after entering this command I got this result:
-rw------- 1 root root 871244 Oct 16 11:06 /var/log/installer/syslog
Which mean I’ve installed my distro in the 16th of October in this year, at 11:06 😀
Actually I backed to Debian in the 1st of October, but it was Debian Cinnamon, but in the 16th I backed to use Debian Jessie KDE 😀

Know your distribution

Do you like to know a lot about your system and your distribution? In Linux, there’s a simple tool called screenfetch it helps you to know details about your distro. Let’s install it:

Open your terminal and add this command:
sudo apt install screenfetch
and it will give you something like that:

screenfetch on debian

screenfetch command on Debian jessie 8 KDE

Awesome, isn’t it? Now try it in your distro and show us the result 🙂
ENJOY 😀 If you have any question or suggestion, leave it in a comment … Goodbye
