Change Computer NAme??

Postby tlcmd on Tue Apr 15, 2014 11:45 am

I've an older computer which i am giving to a 12 year old handicapped kid. When I installed LMDE (Mate) 64 bit, i named it "me". I would like to rename it in his name. Can i do this without re-installing the complete OS? And if so, how.

This is pretty easy, a couple of quick steps right here...
KDE/Cinnamon/W8.1 - Asus MB, AMD FX-8370 CPU, AMD Radeon R7, 120GB SSD, 2x1TB HDD, 16GB RAM, etc... Please add SOLVED to the Subject if it's resolved.
