Any artwork in respect of Zorin has to be 'Creative Commons by nc' - you would be better forking Ubuntu which is what Zorin is basically. I don't think you would be able to use the Zorin Logo - in much the same way that the 'successor' to PearOS wanted to be called 'Clementine' - the OS Media Player people complained about that so it had to be renamed 'Klementine' but so far no activity on that. You would be better going to Ubuntu 'build-your-own' distro site and do it that way! ;) or from the command line:

dpkg --install uck_2.4.7-0ubuntu1_all.deb
