Change the Computer name in Ubuntu 16.04

Open terminal and run command:

$ sudo gedit /etc/hostname 

/etc/hostname is a simple one line file, change the name to whatever your want.

Next, Open terminal and run command:

$ sudo gedit /etc/hosts 

In /etc/hosts change the name in second line and make it SAME to the name in /etc/hostname.

Save your changes and restart your machine.
