So I got a laptop from my college that has Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Windows 7. They handed over the laptop after reformatting the computer themselves.
When I open the terminal I used to see
which I managed to change to
sudo gedit /etc/hostname
and switched off the Auto Login So I could see Sid at the top left corner of the login page.
I want to change collegename to user or ubuntu or something else which does not remind me of my college.. just like it appears
for the root user. What should I do? I am not the root user.
sudo gedit /etc/hosts
and changed collegename to myname beside 127.0.1.1 but have not checked whether the name has changed or not.
The bluetooth name is also not a default, they've changed everything they could and it's the same for all students.
