Please add your hardware

Please add your hardware to our database. We created an automated hardware scan script (see GitHub lhg_scanner) that takes care of everything.

You have to download the script


and let the program collect your hardware information:

perl scan_hardware

An URL will be provided to you, where you can see your scan results and rate and comment the hardware’s Linux compatibility.

You can combine the two commands with one line of code:

perl <(wget -q -O -)

(The script needs wget and libwww-perl installed. This can be achieved under Ubuntu by the command “sudo apt-get install libwww-perl wget”)


Additional options

There are several other options to submit your hardware details:

Option 2: Email

Send an email with all relevant information (lspci, lshw, lsusb, dmesg) and maybe even pictures to

Option 3: Registered user

We think that a up-to-date and extensive hardware compatibility list can only be achieved if lots of users contribute. As a registered user you add can hardware descriptions directly into the database via our web back-end.

Option 4: Submit form

Please use the form below to submit your information anonymously:

    If I run the hardware scan command listed above I get the following error message:

    Can't locate LWP/ in @INC (you may need to install the LWP::UserAgent module) (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.18.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.18.2 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.18 /usr/share/perl/5.18 /usr/local/lib/site_perl) at ...

    • LHG-Team says:

      The scan script uses the libwww-perl library to upload the scan results to our servers. If this library was not installed, you get the error message shown above. Under Ubuntu you can simply install the library by the following command:

      sudo apt-get install libwww-perl
