    Question This one is for the Ubuntu Guru's ...

    Hi,

    I've been customizing my desktop, trying to go from the very start to the very end

    At the very beginning of startup we all know it reads UBUNTU along with ubuntu's logo. The same goes for the very end of shutdown.

    My question is could this be changed to read something else, example instead of "UBUNTU" to read "POETGUY" ??

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS btw...

    Sure. Check out this link UbuntuEyeCandy. This page shows how to change several different settings. I think you are looking for the splash screens. To just change the text you may need to do some editing of the graphic file.

    Thanks a lot Jim. Guy here at the ubuntu forums, pointed me out exactly to the file. For any other interested in working out the same look it up:[SOLVED] Is it possible to Change Ubuntu Startup To Read Something Else?? - Ubuntu Forums

    I didn't realize I was interested until I read this post, so thanks
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.
