According to the official wiki:

wget ftp://cathbard.com/binary/inxi*.deb
sudo dpkg -i inxi*
sudo apt-get -f install

The last line is not in the wiki but you could need it to resolve some extra dependencies (gawk in my install).

There is also an option to add a repository shared by all debian systems, but it has lots of other packages, mainly themes, you can add it with this commands:

sudo -s
wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cathbard.list http://cathbard.com/files/cathbard.list
apt-get update && apt-get install cathbard-keyring

The official repository has changed. Based on the new wiki instructions, here is how I installed inxi on my Xubuntu 12.04 LTS machine:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:unit193/inxi
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install inxi
