Every computer connected to a network receives an IP address, and you might need to know your computer’s IP address for a variety of reasons. Fortunately, Linux Mint makes it easier to find your computer’s IP address through the System Settings utility.
To find your Linux Mint computer’s IP address, first launch the System Settings application by clicking on its icon in the mintmenu. After System Settings launches, scroll down to the Hardware section and then click on the icon for Network .
This will bring up the Network utility. In the left-hand pane of the window, the utility will list all of the available network connections on your computer. In the right-hand pane, it will show details of the currently selected network connection. To find the IP address for a specific connection, left-click on the connect for which you wish to find the address. The right-hand pane will then show the details, including both the IPv4 and the IPv6 addresses.
