"Lubuntu" instead of "ubuntu" in grub menu and nvram entries.
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

First ask upstream if it's okay to use "Lubuntu" instead of "ubuntu" in grub and nvram entries.

Then figure out a way to do that. AFAIK adding "--bootloader-id=Lubuntu" option in the 'grub-install' command(during installation) should do the job. Still I will check grub documentation once as I already have to go through it for theming grub.

Also need to make sure that the name is not restored to ubuntu after a grub update. Maybe add a script somewhere which notes if grub is updated and automatically runs the "grub-install' with the above option.

I just talked with a member of the Ubuntu Technical Board; it is a platform expectation that we do not modify this, because the base is Ubuntu.
