What the Unity Launcher icon currently looks like.

I recently installed the edubuntu-artworkpack along with theedubuntu-wallpaperspackage. The Unity Launcher icon immediately switched to the Edubuntu logo. My question is, how do I switch this back to the original Ubuntu logo? Also, the login screen shows the edubuntu banner on it as well.

The icon file changed is: /usr/share/unity/6/launcher_bfb.png

I can suggest two ways in which you can restore this:

  1. Manually, by copying and pasting this file:
  2. Automatically, by re-installing unity

Thanks! It worked. Is there a way to fix the problem with the login screen as well? – nick Jan 8 '13 at 17:22
Could you please upload the 13.04 launcher icon? The icon reverted to a question mark when I upgraded. – nick Apr 25 '13 at 16:31
OK. Edited the answer to change url link to Ubuntu 13.04 icon. – Sadi Apr 25 '13 at 17:00
Thanks! :D I really appreciate it. – nick Apr 25 '13 at 17:18

You can change the banner with ubuntu tweak.

1.Install it with this command from your terminal

sudo dpkg -i ubuntu-tweak_0.8.3-1~precise1_all.deb

Now you got it installed.

Type as Ubuntu Tweak in your unity dash and it will list you that , Then now click at Tweaks and Unlock it.

There you can customize it as you want.If you would like to get the default one then just click at The current background and choose default background from the list.

Hope that helps you.

Actually, it didn't change the login screen. Is there a folder I can go to to manually edit it? – nick Jan 9 '13 at 15:03
