Change Ubuntu Logo to Another image on Panel


  • Older versions of Ubuntu (before 5.10 Breezy Badger) came with the Gnome foot on the Applications menu. If you want you can change it follow these instructions as well:
    • App-button.png

    Following these instructions, you can put any image you want in that space – just create or find an image that suits you, and follow the steps below to put it in place.


Copy image to your PC


  • All you need to do is right click on one image below, select Save image as.. to a location you can remember and have permission to.

    • Gnome-logo-icon-transparent.png



From Command line


  • Now all you have to do is run the following commands:
      cd /usr/share/pixmaps/
    sudo mv gnome-logo-icon-transparent.png gnome-logo-icon-transparent.bak
    sudo mv /[path]/[image].png ./gnome-logo-icon-transparent.png

    replace [path] where you downloaded the image & [image] with the name of the icon.

    You need to restart Gnome by logging out and back in, or typing sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart or via sudo killall gnome-panel
