Archey3 is a simple Python script that prints basic system information and ASCII art of the Arch Linux logo.

Installation

Install the archey3 package.

Starting

Archey3 can be run by typing:

$ archey3

This should produce an output similar to below.

It can also be started automatically with each new Bash session. To do this, append archey3 to a new line in your ~/.bashrc file, including any options.

Configuration

Archey3's configuration file is stored at ~/.config/archey3.cfg by default. However this can be adjusted using this command where CONFIG represents the file to use:

$ archey3 --config=CONFIG

Colors

Archey3 can display colors other than the default blue. To change colors, append the -c foo flag, where "foo" represents the desired color. Supported colors are: black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta, cyan, and white. For example, to display archey3 in red, type:

$ archey3 -c red

Editing the config file

A sample config file, with comments showing all of the possible options for configuration, is available in the examples page.
