General :: Adding Custom Files And Rebuilding Live CD

Jul 13, 2011

I have been able to successfully build a live Linux CD, the problem is during the course of setting up my new linux instance on my latop I had to install a few items (intel drivers). So got all the files and everything worked after manually installing, but wanted to try to rebuild the CD with all the files in the CD, rather than having to use a USB drive to put the file onto my laptop. When I made the changes to the configuration that I previously used(just edited the chroot file and did lh_build again) nothing happened the binary was no rebuilt. So some questions: If I am wanting to add files into a live CD build how do I do this? How do I rebuild a CD? or Is it possible? (i.e. I have to continually start from scratch each time).

Ubuntu :: Alter Config Files After Install From Custom Live Cd?

Apr 24, 2011

I'm building my own ubuntu variant for low resource systems at the moment. It's based from the ubuntu 10.10 minimal install (12mb iso). It uses openbox as the window manager and SLiM as the login/display manager.

What I would like two know is how to have a few config files that are on the live cd to be altered for the installed system. Specifically, SLiM autologin, but I'll probably find other things to change aswell. Basically a sort of "first boot script".

General :: Adding A Custom Keyboard Layout In Kubuntu?

Feb 28, 2011

I have written a custom keyboard layout that I'm trying to install in Kubuntu 10.10. This is the layout: [URL]

I have added the layout as /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/dotan and made these changes:

In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst I added this:
! layout
dotan Dotan
Of course, the !layout line was already there, I did not touch it.
In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.xml I added this:


However, after a reboot I do not see the new layout in KDE's configuration for these things.

Note: this is a repost of a post on the geekhack forums. After posting I realised that LinuxQuestions is the better place to ask this. For reference, here is the original geekhack thread: [URL]

General :: Custom Built Live CD Using Gentoo Not Booting Properly On All Machines?

Dec 12, 2009

I've been working on creating a Live CD with the tools I want, just for my use with system recovery and repair. For the most part, things have gone very well. The Live CD actually works fine, somewhat. I have run in to a problem where it doesn't actually boot on a lot of hardware.

What happens is during boot, while the modules are loading, the boot process hangs and the disc drive spins down. While I thought it might be a kernel problem, I'm using the .config from the latest gentoo Live CD, which boots fine on the same hardware.

General :: Adding A Live USB To A Repository Via Command Line [Kubuntu 10.04]?

Sep 3, 2010

Couple of days I go I setup VLC using Kubuntu's graphic software manager, and installed the 3 plug-ins, one of which was related to pulse. After doing this sound stopped working in flash videos. I had read, not sure where, that Kubuntu didn't use pulse (which slipped my mind when setting up VLC).

So I make the mistake of removing everything which had pulse in it's name (again, via the graphic software manager). A message popped-up saying that some packages needed to be removed/edited (a LONG list, a big clue that I was doing something stupid I guess). I let it run it's course and after that it won't boot properly.

If I boot it normally it hangs at the Kubuntu screen with the five dots filling endlessly. If I press F1 it's stuck at "checking battery status."

Recovery mode boots, but the recovery option does nothing.

So I was wondering if I could boot into recovery mode and go into the terminal and add a live USB as a repository for apt, and try to salvage the install?

Or should I admit defeat and reinstall?

Ubuntu :: Adding A 576i Custom Resolution?

Dec 7, 2010

I am trying to add a custom resolution (576i) when connecting an ASROCK ION330HT to a panasonic SDTV CRT.

I have previously had success connecting a laptop to the SDTV using powerstrip (Vista). Now that I am using Ubuntu I dont have that option.

I have used xrandr to try and add a 576i resolution (using --newmode, --addmode, --output). When I view the available resolutions using "xrandr -q", for the new 576i resolution I see the following:

720x576_@25i (0x19f) 14.0MHz
h: width 720 start 728 end 792 total 864 skew 0 clock 16.2KHz
v: height 576 start 593 end 598 total 625 clock 25.9Hz

Can anyone explain (0x19f)? I am wondering if that is an error??

If it matters, I'm using 10.04.

Programming :: Adding Job From Script (Custom Built RPM)

Mar 10, 2011

I'm building an RPM that requires adding a cron job into a user's(service account) crontab...from what I see in the manpages, this isn't possible, as the only viable option is to replace the crontab entries already there for previous scripts being run. Either way, as an example I've found I can make it work by directly modifying the crontab file using:

echo "* * * * * /bin/ls -la ~/ >> ~/ls.log" >> /var/spool/cron/userName

I'd just like to know, is there any MAJOR issues with modifying a the crontabs like this? This is running on a Redhat Enterprise Linux server by the way.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Adding Custom PJL Instructions To Print Job

Sep 18, 2010

Getting sick of always having toner saver active when printing in Linux, I've used windows today to "print to file" and examine how the windows driver for my printer manages to override the toner saver settings.

It turns out that the windows driver prepends some PJL commands to the PostScript file that is sent to the printer. Nothing really fancy, so I would like to:Define two logical printers: one that uses the "toner save" feature and one that prints with the highes quality. For the "high quality" printer, prepend the same PJL commands that the windows driver adds.

Any hints on how I can do that (especially adding the PJL commands to the data that is sent to the printer)? My search skills seem to let me down on this one :-(

Hardware and software details:OpenSuse 11.2 HP LaserJet 6MP Printer networked through a D-Link one-port printer server (of the type you are supposed to plug into the printers parallel port)

OpenSUSE :: CUPS: Adding Custom Page Size To Ppd File?

Mar 24, 2010

I have a Canon i560 printer, which is rather well supported by Gutenprint drivers. I have been using those for a while and they serve my regular printing needs. However, when I try to print a good quality photo on glossy photo paper, strange stuff happens.The colour doesn't come out nice, but somewhat faded. Worse, no matter how I specify that I want to make a print on 10x15 glossy paper, the actual print is always cut off, printed landscape when I specify portrait, etc. The printer is shared via CUPS and when my wife prints from her Windows XP machine, the printer works normally and the colours look brilliant so there's no problem with the machine itself, it has to be in the driver.

I googled this problem extensively and in my search, I found out that Canon does in fact have a Linux driver for this printer, though it can't be found through their website. It is on their ftp server, however: installed the driver from there, following instructions that I found on the web and I have the printer working. But...the photo paper size that I want to print on (10x15 centimetres) isn't available in the ppd file. I can also not specify a custom paper size to print on in digikam or gwenview, since that option is greyed out...Since a ppd file is a text file, I decided to see if I could add a custom paper size. I googled some more and found this page: Adding Custom Paper Sizes to a Custom Printer File Using a Text EditorWith the help of that page, I thought I had it nailed. I added the following to my ppd file:

*PageSize photo/Photo 10x15: "<</CNPageSizeName(photo)/PageSize[283 424]ImagingBBox null>>setpagedevice"
*PageRegion photo/Photo 10x15: "<</CNPageSizeName(photo)/PageSize[283 424]ImagingBBox

General :: Make Custom 'locale' Files?

Jul 9, 2011

Under Debian "Expert Installation" once I have chosen installation/system language and location, I get an informative notice, that:

There is no locale defined for the combination of language and country you have selected.

..and I need to choose one locale available for the selected language. As I understand, locale is just a set of environmental variables used by applications and printed out with locale command?

In addition, is it possible to generate own locale files after the installation, which will match my needs?

OpenSUSE :: LibreOffice Impress - Adding Custom Effects In Text Transition

Jun 29, 2011

I have an extremely urgent support request! I need to create a presentation by Friday. I have selected the template, the elements etc. But, I have to add transition between each text Outlines and each page. It's very easy to add page transition effects. But, so far I have not managed to add automatic custom effect in text transitions (with click).

For example, let's say that I have in page the following format:
Text 1
Text 2
Text 3
I want to present the elements as Text 1, then I click the mouse, Text 2 click the mount Text 3 etc. In MS PowerPoint this is done via Master pages.

I tried the same on OO/LibreOffice 3.3: Edit the Slide Master, modified the fonts etc. Then, I tried to add a custom animation in each element. But with no success.
First of all, it seems that any effect is named: Outline Text 1: Click to...
Second: Even If I accept the fact than there seems to be no way to add an effect for Outline 2 etc, I save and show the presentation. But, instead of a page transition then a blank page that requires a click from me to present the 1st element, I see ALL elements. So, is it possible to do that in OO?

Ubuntu :: Creating Custom Live Cd?

Mar 6, 2010

I am in the tasks section of the following tutorial [URL] I did the list package thing to see what packages there are. However now I cannot leave the list in order to run the purge command. How can I get back to the previous section so I can remove packages from the custom live cd. I want to make sure I am editing the live cd and not the current install. I am going to make two images. One cd that will still have a gui but I plan to build as a recovery tool. The other one is a dvd and will be for installing everything I want on any machine. I am doing the tutorial with Karmic. Also I have cursors, themes and icons I installed from gnome look. I then went to customize and created my own personal mix I like. I would like to make this a standalone theme and come as the default theme on the live cd and dvd. I have no clue what I am doing, however wish to learn to build my own custom live cd. Also I would like to know how to ad repositories to the live cd and how to add programs pre installed that are not usually included.

Ubuntu :: How To Create A Custom Live Cd

Jun 11, 2010

I'm sure this is possible to do, but how do I create a Ubuntu install cd that uses my current config. Ideally I would like to be able to install exactly what I have on my system now, without user files. Wine, Ccsm, amarok, audacity, themes the whole nine yards. I tried using a program called Ubuntu Customization Kit, but it wouldnt let me mount the normal ubuntu install .iso file. This would avoid the hour and a half post-install config every time I screw Ubuntu up as well as stripping off many of the programs I don't need...

Ubuntu :: Ubiquity - Custom Live CD Name

Sep 10, 2009

I am trying to make a Custom Ubuntu Live CD using Remastersys and an installer for the Live CD using Ubiquity. I was able to successfully create a Custom live CD using remastersys and when I boot from the custom Live CD the grub correctly displays the Custom Live CD Name that I specified during the ISO file creation using remastersys. However, when I install from the Live CD that I created, using Ubiquity, after reboot, the Grub menu displays as Ubuntu and not the Custom Label. How can I change it so that after installation, the custom Live CD name is displayed?

General :: RAID5 Array Intermittently Rebuilding?

Jul 17, 2009

I have a 9x320G RAID5 array that I am migrating over to a 3x1.5T RAID5 array.Intermittently, a drive would drop out of the older array and it would automatically start rebuilding. I thought it was a bad cable or controller somewhere, so when I bought the three new drives, I bought a new controller for them all, too. I'm running both arrays side by side until I'm happy the new hardware is stable (one drive was DOA). Then I noticed one morning that both arrays were rebuilding themselves. This was in /var/log/messages:

Debian Configuration :: Creating A Custom Live CD

Feb 24, 2016

I'd like to create my own custom Debian live CD — the idea being to have my own rescue CD with my favorite Debian tools installed. I read about bootcd and was going to give that a try, after creating the ideal system in a qemu virtual machine.

How much exactly can you install on a system so that bootcd can still fit it on a CD? I'm presuming there is some kind of compression involved. When I tried to create my VM, I coudln't get Jessie + LXDE to install onto a 2GB virtual drive (net install) so naturally I'm wondering what I'm going to be able to put on a 700MB CD.

But I'm looking for an alternative to it. I have heard about fedora livecd-creator. What do you think is a better tool?: livehelper or livecd-creator, maybe about good hardware recognition, easy to use, flexibility, reliability, etc. What others good tools are to do this job?

General :: Adding A Files Creation Date To It's File Name?

Sep 17, 2010

I have some basic experiencing creating simple scripts/making directories/changing permissions/etc. but I'm stumped on this one.

I have two linux boxes. I have a script set up on box 'A' to SCP into box 'B', grab a copy of a database backup and store it on box 'A'. It looks like this:

scp root@X.X.X.X:/blah/blah/blah/dump.23.gz /home/blah/DB_Backups/

I have generated a public key on box 'A' and placed it into the authorized_keys file on box 'B', so a password is not required and the file copies over successfully when the script is run. On to my problem...

I need to know what date the 'dump.23.gz' file was originally created when I'm viewing it after it's been copied to box 'A'. If I ls -l on box 'A' it only shows me the date it was created on box 'A' when it was copied.

What would I need to add to my script to append the backup's original creation date on box 'B' to the filename so that when it gets copied to box 'A' I know when the backup was created on box 'B'. I'm sure this is probably confusing. I've done lots of searching and can only find information on how to append the current date and time to a file name. I need to append it's original creation timestamp to the filename when it copies over.
