• Setting up GUI after hostname change


    Hi, I tried to change my hostname (using # hostname ggg) and it did change it of course, but then I tried opening a mousepad or sublime but couldn’t - so I guess it means my GUI is down (I saw I could open a terminal and use nano from there). What should I do after changing hostname to enable normal use of GUI?

  • Did you reboot after changing? If I remember well (not sure, sorry) you need to edit your ```
    /etc/hostname
