change Ubuntu host name

 

You need to edit the computer name in two files:

/etc/hostname

and

/etc/hosts

These will both need administrative access, so run

gksu gedit /path/to/file

Simply replace any instances of the existing computer name with your new one. When complete, restart your computer, and the name will have been changed.
