desktop environments - Why does /etc/issue show me Ubuntu and

Asked by Rizwan on 2018-11-05

Note that Lubuntu is just Ubuntu with a different set of preselected packages. You can have Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu and Xubuntu all installed at the same time. This makes it impossible to denote a single flavour in there. And $DESKTOP_SESSION is an environment variable that only works from within the desktop session癆コ-ム采\
As far as /etc/issue goes and it showing Ubuntu: the file is not related to the desktop session and it is a text file you can manually change with vi or nano.
Could be considered a bug if you did not change it yourself but it could also be considered a user file that should be left to the user to change.
