How can I change the Tux head icon with the distro icon on my profile?

I would like to have the distro logo displayed in my profile as some of the users here have. I searched in the control panel but couldn't find how to do that. Now I have the Tux head icon. How can I do that? Thanks.

P.S. I don't know if this is the right place to post this question. If it isn't, then please move it to the appropriate section.

Use a more secure browser or change the OS you are using.

It detects the distro version from the browser. if your browser does show distro if then it shows a plain penguin .

Set the useragent string.

This process is different for every browser.

Tell us the distro and browser you use.
