NAME
       GSmartControl - Hard disk drive and SSD health inspection tool

SYNOPSIS
       gsmartcontrol [OPTIONS]

       gsmartcontrol-root [--desktop=_desktop_]	[OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION
       GSmartControl  is  a graphical user interface for smartctl (from	smart-
       montools), which	is a tool for querying and  controlling	 SMART	(Self-
       Monitoring,  Analysis,  and  Reporting  Technology) data	on modern hard
       disk and	solid-state drives. It allows you to inspect the drive's SMART
       data to determine its health, as	well as	run various tests on it.

       This  manual  page  documents  briefly the gsmartcontrol	and gsmartcon-
       trol-root commands.

       gsmartcontrol-root command launches gsmartcontrol  with	administrative
       privileges.  The	 desktop argument specifies which desktop is currently
       running,	for automatic selection	of native su mechanism.	 Valid	values
       for desktop are auto, kde, gnome, other.
