General :: Make A Live Cd With Ubuntu Customization Kit?
Jul 27, 2011
I'm trying to make a live CD with UCK, and I've got it all working perfectly except for the proprietary Nvidia drivers. When I try to sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 it won't install properly giving me an error saying it won't work because it's chrooted (which it is), so I guess my question is how do I install the proprietary drivers into a chrooted environment so I can put it on a live CD?
I would just test it until I figured it out, but customizing the CD it about an hour long process after all is said and done so I'd rather avoid it.
I am using uuntu 8.04 and I am trying to make live cd with running kernel. I know that there is documentation in ubuntu website in "how to make live cd" but the thing is this is my custom kernel. I have my own configuration. So I want this kernel to be work in live cd.
I recently used clonezilla to make a backup image of hdd, before doing factory restore, now the image is of not necessary as I can image the restored computer (Acer Aspire 3620).Is it possible to extract image to blu-ray and make bootable as in live-cd?
I was wondering if there was a way to create a script to automatically restore, on a fresh linux (with GNOME desktop manager) install, all my interface preferences. Let me explain; every time I install ubuntu (or any other distro), I find myself doing the same actions over and over again: delete the bottom panel, place the top panel on the bottom, put the workspace switcher in the bottom panel, add a shortcut to gedit on the bottom panel next the firefox icon, set 'oblivion' theme to gedit, and so on. Frankly, this is getting annoying.
So I was wondering if I could do it once and for all, and keep track of it on a script, that way on future fresh installs I will need only run the script and my distro will look the way I want it to. Before anyone suggests me to, let me point out I already tried replacing the newly-created ~/.gconf and the ~/.gconfd with the ones from previous "customized" distros but it gave me major issues in terms of window compositing, so I had to revert to the backed up gconf and gconfd directories.
how i can customize Ubuntu 9.1.0 or 9.0.4. Coz during installation it did not give any "Customize Now" Option ? Or if suitable then guide me pls to some other version of Ubuntu that offer me to Customized at installation time
I just downloaded Ubuntu 9.04 while using the 8.10 live cd. I was planning to burn it to a disc, but I forgot all about the live cd issue. So is there anyway I can burn Ubuntu 9.04 without having to download it to a real os. Or can I make a bootable usb with the live cd of 8.10.
I try and try and try to make a live CD.. I get "fails" in the process..? This time I managed to get a file in Home, but it's locked, and I've tried everything I found on the Net to unlock it, to enable creating the CD...It seems I am forced to reinstall Ubuntu to clean this mess out. I can't unlock the file..?All I wants is an install CD of the OS how I likes it, with my background pix, my music, and my choice of peripheral softwares, avoiding doing all those downloads and all that tweaking... Is this possible with Ubuntu?..
I'm currently running 9.10 and I'm wondering if it isn't possible to turn certain features on or off. For example the dock that appears at the bottom of the screen, I don't dig it but it isn't under System ---> Preferences ---> Startup applications. Also when I connect/disconnect my modem, can I change the size of the notification window and how long it stays on the screen? Another is how to stop everything I plug in appearing on the desktop. I prefer an uncluttered desktop and would like to open plug-in devices through Places.
This year in college I've had the liberty to be learning about Linux. This was mostly in the shell so a lot of GUI applications we didn't use. The fun part of this all is that once you know how to work in Bash. Linux isn't all so frightening and confusing anymore ! So I've decided to finally take the shot on switching from Windows to Ubuntu Desktop and I must say I'm quite amazed with the customization you can do in Ubuntu.I just installed Docky and I installed Gnome Do. Now it has come to my attention that Gnome Do can integrate with Docky however I do have a small question concerning the customization of the Dock bar. In Gnome Do I would really like to have the panel look from Docky and I was wondering if this is possible. To me it seems that it's only possible to use the 3D look which looks a lot like Mac OSx. I'm aiming for a bit of a Windows 7 interface however.
I have ubuntu 10.4 with compiz fusion and emerald themer, and I would like to know if there's any good way to download themes not only for the window decorations but also for the panels. I use cairo dock opengl on the bottom but I do use the top panel and I would like to be able to download some cool themes for it and not just the limited customization found on the panel properties
I finally got this thing exactly how I want it with all sorts of tools,... I would like to know how to make a live install cd so I can share with others and put on other computers.. Like be a as clear and specific as you can.. should I leave the install file there on the main desktop too?
I got BT's repo's set and ready to install, tho I haven't installed them all just yet cause I not wanna crash the system, so I guess what I am asking has anyone sucecfully done this and what are the specific risks here. I have uploaded crunch and that works fine if I do it manually from the command line. the kernal seems to be update-able as well to BT's Kernal, I am not sure if I should do this or not in fear it might crash the Ubuntu system somehow. I guess what I might do next is install everything but the Kernal and install the executable links to the drop down menu by hand per the menu structure.
What I would ideally want is to have all the functionality of BT in Ubuntu which is pretty close to where I am at. Also, when I am done I want to make a live CD of this system so that I not have to do this ever again as it is very time consuming. What program would be used for that? Would any of my user data transfere? I don't want my user data to be transferred to the live CD just the raw system data etc. Anyone done this and would like to chat via skype? that would be best, but I'll take any help I can get at this point. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 for all this.
how to make an ubuntu live USB that's bootable, without having to install qt? I've looked at the ubuntu guides on the matter but they either seem to be out of date, incomplete, or tell you to use unetbootit that requires qt. It seems silly to have to install hundreds of MB of qt on my tiny eeepc just to make a bootable usb.
my system administrator is mean, and i cannot make live cd's, the disk drives don't burn. i have a 10.04 lts ubuntu ISO, and i have tried to make it live usb mode, using macintosh 10.5.8, intel , but you need a password for any and all Sudo commands, so no terminal, and disk utility won't burn to a usb drive. seeing as how the disk drives don't or won't burn, it cannot be helped. i can't download applications for mac, need an administrator password to do so, but i can download windows applications, except my windows machine has no internet, not to mention the most sophisticated thing it can handell is windows 98 second edition. (btw, the windows machine won't burn either, and it doesn't read dvd's, or burned cd-roms, it is a 1995 micron nbku375)
I'm trying to figure out how I can customise the menus that appear when I right-click on one of my panels or the desktop in Xfce 4.6.2 under Xubuntu 10.10. I was able to use Gnome menu editor to get the standard menus up to snuff but it will do nothing for the right-click menus.
I have no aversion to manually editing config files if that's what it takes, I just cant seem to find the right ones.
I've started using uck. I have around 100 packages installed on my system right now and when I use uck package manager and click on the required package to install. It starts downloading it. I already have all the packages downloaded and installed on my system. How can I add them to the live cd using the ubuntu customization kit?
I am using ubuntu 8.04 and i am trying to make iso image cd with running kernel. i know that there is documentation in ubuntu website in"how to make live cd" but the thing is this is my custom kernel. i have my own configuration. so i want this kernel to be work in live cd.
If I use Ubuntu's (10.4) Startup Disc Creator app to create Debian (Lenny) start up USB I just get (when using it on a separate machine) a black screen with the text "boot:" If I press Enter I get a pale blue screen but nothing else, some text if I press the TAB key, but it will do nothing. Is this because I use Ubuntu for a Debian OS or is there some other problem? I've noticed that the disc creator in Ubuntu only really likes Ubuntu related OSs. But since it recognised it when I created it I would have thought it'd work!
How can I make a usb live cd and save changes to the same usb stick?I have the unetbootin program and plan to install ubuntu on my 4 gig flash drive. What do I need to do to save the changes and preferences and even install a few programs to it. I essentially want it to behave the same way as if I had installed it to my hard drive except with a 4 gig memory limit.
I've been looking for a while, a way to customize my gdm screen under the new gnome 3 (fedora 15). As of now the touchpad click of my laptop is disabled under the gdm screen but not when I log into my session. I figure the gnome settings must be different under gdm so I need to find a way to change said settings but up until now I wasn't successful. Does anyone have an idea on how to activate the touchpad click under gdm ? And more generally how to customize the gdm screen in gnome 3 (change the themes, etc) ?
N.B : Already know how to change the background of the gdm screen. All you have to do is put the background you want in the folder fitting your screen resolution under "/usr/share/backgrounds/lovelock/default-stripes" then by editing the file "/usr/share/backgrounds/lovelock/default-stripes/lovelock.xml" so that the name of the new background is up to date within that file
