CPU-Z is one of my favorite applications on Windows. It beautifully displays detailed information about your CPU, RAM, motherboard and other parts of your system. i-Nex is a program designed to look and feel like a clone of CPU-Z on Linux.

i-Nex is not available from the Ubuntu repositories, so I tried installing it from its stable release PPA:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:i-nex-development-team/stable
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt install i-nex

However, I got this dependency error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 i-nex : Depends: gambas3-runtime (>= 3.5.0) but it is not going to be installed
         Depends: gambas3-gb-image (>= 3.5.0) but it is not going to be installed
         Depends: gambas3-gb-qt4 (>= 3.5.0) but it is not going to be installed
         Depends: gambas3-gb-form (>= 3.5.0) but it is not going to be installed
         Depends: gambas3-gb-desktop (>= 3.5.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

i-Nex is written using the Gambas language, a clone of Visual Basic for Linux. It requires 3.5 or a later version of Gambas, while Ubuntu has an older version.

To get the latest version of Gambas, I added its stable release PPA and then installed i-Nex. It all worked fine:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gambas-team/gambas3
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt install i-nex

Note: CPU-G is another clone of CPU-Z for Linux. However, I find that i-Nex is far more detailed and closer in appearance and operation to the original CPU-Z.

Tried with: i-Nex 7.4.0 and Ubuntu 14.04
