lsb stands for Linux Standard Base

lsb_release is an important command for bash scriptwriters.

It lets the user know about the currently installed Linux distribution

the specific version, and codename.
Yesterday I was trying to set up a Raspberry pi web server for my client and found out the script I was running to set up certain packages needed to know the distribution name.
The script was using lsb_release command to know the distribution’s name but failed with the error “lsb_release command not found”.
I thought lsb_release command is available in all Linux distributions out of the box but it is not.
If you get the error “lsb_release command not found“, here is how you can fix it.
Fix for lsb_release command not found    In order to fix the error, we need to install lsb-core package.
This package is available in almost all repositories.
So just install lsb-core and it will fix the error.
If your distribuiton is not debian based, it should still be available in the repositories.
Use the distro package manager to install lsb-core.
sudo apt install lsb-core    For fedora or derivates –    sudo dnf install lsb-core    For CentOS or derivatives –    sudo yum install lsb-core    For Arch or derivatives –    sudo pacman -S lsb-core    install lsb core    Here is how to use lsb_release command.
lsb_release returns the currently running lsb version.
BTW, lsb stands for Linux Standard Base.
lsb_release    lsb_release -a    lsb_release -a    lsb_release -c    lsb_release -c    lsb_release -r    lsb_release -r    You can also combine the arguments together to get just the information you need.
lsb_release -rcd    lsb_release -rcd.
