Customizing the prompt at TTY

Hello, I would like to rename the prompt displayed at TTY to Endeavour-Plasma-dell. I have attached a screenshot to better express what I am talking about.

So in the first line, right before the kernel version. I want to customize the displayed text and also include some other stuff. How do I edit that label?

Thank you in advance

I suspect you are looking for /etc/issue to make your changes.


It’s showing you your computer hostname which is currently “dell”. If you want to change that then you can edit /etc/hostname and reboot.


Yep, it is the /etc/issue file. Thanks a bunch!
