I can't override the default logo for the actual distro. I followed the man page instructions but it didn't change at all. It's still looking like in this answer.

Am I missing something?

I'm using Byobu 5.106 (with tmux: 2.1) and fish shell 2.3.1.


You can set text for the log at ~/.byobu/statusrc or /usr/share/byobu/status/statusrc

The latter will be used as defaults for all users.

I could change the default logo into "U " by this.

# Default: depends on the distro (which is either auto-detected, either set
# via $DISTRO)

Setting "" does not work but " " can be used, instead.

  • So there's no other way than setting it into statusrc... I don't know what happened to my byobu but I tried that with no luck. Anyway, since this is the correct answer and solves it in most cases, I'll mark this as the answer. – cgrs Mar 16 '17 at 7:32
