ubuntu-desktop label in top panel

Asked by samuel on 2012-05-25

when there are no active windows, it displays "ubuntu desktop" in the top panel, is it possible to change this text or is it in compiled code?

i was able to find the image files for the launcher but not this.

any pointers would be greatly appreciated

Hi Samuel,

It is sort of hardcoded in panel/applets/appname/appnameapplet.cpp source code. The string however is a subject for translation, so you could try to provide a translation for it - take a look at the po/ directory and the top of po/CMakeLists.txt in the source package of unity2d.
