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 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.
