How To Find Which Version Of Ubuntu I Have ?

Q. How to find out which version of Ubuntu I am running ?

A. Open terminal and type:
lsb_release -cs
You'll see output like karmic, lucid. I got lucid that means I'm running Lucid Lynx.

You can also use the following command which works on most of the Linux distros.
user@user-desktop:~$ cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu lucid (development branch) \n \l


  1. wouldn't lsb_release -a be better?

  2. @Anonymous,

    Yes it would if you want to find it in detail.
