How can I combine these two results using awk or something else to have in the same command that result in the following output.

**Device  -  System_Type  -  Size   -  Use%    -    Mount_Point**

why can't you try df -hT?


-bash-3.2$ df -hT
Filesystem    Type    Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2     ext3     48G   17G   29G  37% /
/dev/sda5     ext3    238G   66G  160G  30% /home
/dev/sda1     ext3     99M   17M   77M  18% /boot
tmpfs        tmpfs    2.0G     0  2.0G   0% /dev/shm

The type specifies the system type and the only exception is this will show only the mounted file systems as opposed to fdisk -l which shows all the available partitions irrespective of whether they are mounted or not.

I prefer to get only physical filesystems in the output. How can do so? – Nadina May 28 '14 at 20:18
Do you mean to get the system type as Windows/Linux in the output? – Ramesh May 28 '14 at 20:24
yes not to get FS such udev, tmpfs and so on.. – Nadina May 28 '14 at 21:00

For more robust and definable output use findmnt...

findmnt --help

Here's a modified version of Ramesh's answer which gives you the columns you need of only the important filesystems (not udev, tmpfs).

disks=$(sudo fdisk -l | grep -Po "/dev/sd.\d+")
for i in $disks; do df -Th $i | tail -n 1; done

He wants the Filesystem Type in there as well. That's part of the problem. – Jeight Jun 4 '14 at 21:42

This might be to simple but you could always just use &&:

sudo fdisk -l && df -h

But cfdisk may do what you're wanting:

cfdisk -P s

Partition Table for /dev/sda

           First       Last

Whomever down voted me, learn to take a joke...geeze. My second (serious) answer has both the file length and Filesystem Types which was kinda (not exactly) what he was asking for. – Jeight Jun 4 '14 at 21:44
