1.There are several ways to do that. if you just type
$ip address it will show you the interfaces.You can see the IP address beside inet line.
2.ip address command has some shortcuts as well .
$ ip a or
$ ip addr both will give you the exact same result as
$ ip address because they are the same command .
3.IP is not the only command you can useto find the IP address of your system .Another good command :
hostname - I ; option this will give you just the IP address of your system nothing else. No interfaces information nothing else .
4.There’s another way to get your IP and that is using the network manager .The network manager has a command line version called nmcli and you can use it to show the device interface and in the output you will find the Gateway information and the version 4 of IP address .Command :
nmcli -p device show
In this way you can find your IP address.
