How To Install Neofetch on Ubuntu 24.04 LTS

Install Neofetch on Ubuntu 24.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Neofetch on Ubuntu 24.04 LTS. Neofetch is a widely used command-line system information tool that displays a wealth of information about your Linux system in a visually appealing way. This lightweight and highly customizable utility provides a quick overview of your operating system, kernel version, uptime, installed packages, shell, screen resolution, desktop environment, window manager, theme, icons, CPU, GPU, and memory usage.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Neofetch on Ubuntu 24.04 (Noble Numbat). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies.
  • An Ubuntu 24.04 system with root access or a user with sudo privileges.

Install Neofetch on Ubuntu 24.04 LTS Noble Numbat

Step 1. Updating the Package Repository.

To ensure a smooth installation process and avoid potential conflicts, it is crucial to update your system before installing any new packages. Updating your system will fetch the latest package lists from the repositories and upgrade any installed packages to their newest available versions.

To update your system, open a terminal window and run the following commands:

sudo apt update

The sudo apt update command refreshes the package lists, while sudo apt upgrade upgrades any outdated packages to their latest versions. If prompted, enter your sudo password and press ‘Y’ to confirm the installation of updates.

Step 2. Installing Neofetch on Ubuntu 24.04.

Neofetch is available in the default Ubuntu repositories, making the installation process straightforward using the APT package manager. APT, which stands for “Advanced Package Tool,” is a powerful command-line tool that handles the installation, upgrade, and removal of packages on Ubuntu and other Debian-based Linux distributions.

To install Neofetch using APT, run the following command in your terminal:

sudo apt install neofetch

APT will automatically handle downloading the Neofetch package and any required dependencies. Once the installation is complete, you can start using Neofetch without any additional configuration.

Step 3. Run Neofetch.

Now that Neofetch is installed on your Ubuntu 24.04 system, you can run it to display your system information. To do so, simply open a terminal window and enter the following command:


Neofetch will gather the relevant system data and display it in the terminal, along with your distribution’s logo or a custom ASCII art image. The output will include information about your operating system, kernel, uptime, packages, shell, resolution, desktop environment, window manager, theme, icons, CPU, GPU, and memory usage.

Here’s an example of what the Neofetch output might look like:
