I'm using Zorin distro. What is the Linux equivalent to Windows Hardware manager.


I need to determine which com ports I can use to interface my amateur radio with my Dell Inspiron laptop.

There's a nice GUI hardware info tool called hardinfo. It could be useful while you are learning your way around the command line.

It should be in the repos.
