Check operability of computer hardware and find drivers

A tool to check operability of computer hardware and upload result to the Linux hardware database.

Probe — is a snapshot of your computer hardware state. The tool checks operability of devices by analysis of logs and returns a permanent url to view the probe of the computer.

The probes are intended to simplify collecting of logs necessary for investigating hardware related problems. Just run one simple command in the console to check your hardware and collect all the system logs at once:

 sudo hw-probe -all -upload

If some of hardware devices don't work due to missed drivers then the tool will suggest a proper Linux kernel version according to the LKDDb or third-party drivers.

Enable snaps on Kubuntu and install Hardware Probe

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.

Versions of Kubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) don’t include snap by default, but snap can be installed from the command line as follows:
