I use Hashtab in windows to know the hash of a file. All I have to do is right click on the file, click properties and in the properties menu there would be a Tab called Hash and it has the hash of the file in different formats like MD5, SHA-1 etc. Is there something like that for Ubuntu?
You don't say what window manager or file manager you're using.
If you're using Gnome and Nautilus you can install nautilus-gtkhash package. This adds a "Digests" tab to the Properties dialog for a file.
NOTE: You will have to restart Nautilus with
You could also try this "Hash Checker"
HOW TO INSTALL/UNINSTALL From GUI: Just run ‘Setup’ script and follow the instructions. From terminal: cd into Hash Checker’s folder and type ‘./Setup –help’ (without quotes) to see available language switches
USAGE Using with Nautilus: Right-click somewhere in Nautilus, go to Scripts > Check hash(es) then browse to the file you want to check or (to avoid browsing for a file) just right-click on the file you want to check then go to Scripts > Check hash(es). Using with any File Manager: Click at the Hash Checker’s desktop icon to run it, then browse to the file you want to check
DEPENDENCIES Zenity (for displaying GUI) md5sum and sha256sum (most distros have them both by default)
