I am running Ubuntu 17.10 and I would like to build a completely de-branded ISO of it. This means not just dropping the Ubuntu name from
/etc/lsb_release but also deleting references in the text of the installation program, in the "about this computer" screen and so on.
I've already checked other questions but I do not consider them duplicate because:
- How to de-brand Ubuntu? is very old and it just turned into a bunch of "try this tool" suggestions
- How can I replace Ubuntu branding with my own? is also old and suggests a tool called
relinuxthat hasn't seen updates in years
- How to customize the Ubuntu Live CD? does mention APT packages (and I know how this works) but not trademarks
Therefore my questions are:
- Starting from a stock Ubuntu 17.10 (or an official derivative), how can I remove references to the Ubuntu trademark and logo?
- What exact packages do I need to uninstall?
- Are there images I need to replace? Are there files I need to edit other than
Please note that I am not interested in removing other names such as Firefox. I am only interested in the name of the distro.
