I want to change the name and logo of ubuntu 11.10 from system settings -> system info, how do i do that? and make it remain that way even after upgrades to like 12.04?

  • Why would you want to do that? It could make diagnosing problems confusing. Commented Mar 23, 2012 at 16:57

  • I understand that the name comes from the command lsb_release, which could confuse someone trying to help you. But I am still awfully curious as to why you would want such a thing! (I would imagine it is possible, but I don't know how.) Commented Mar 23, 2012 at 17:19
  • just like that, like linux mint did. i am creating my own custom distribution based on ubuntu
