       gsmartcontrol [OPTIONS]

       gsmartcontrol-root [<desktop> [OPTIONS]]


       GSmartControl   is  a  graphical  user  interface  for  smartctl  (from
       smartmontools), which is a tool  for  querying  and  controlling  SMART
       (Self-Monitoring,  Analysis,  and  Reporting Technology) data on modern
       hard disk 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
       gsmartcontrol-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.
