    Remastersys 3.0.1-1 for Ubuntu released

    Changelog is as follows:

    * 3.0.1-1
    * Added filter in remastersys-skelcopy to remove akonadi database entries and socket files
    * Added filter in remastersys to prevent copying of kdecache* files
    * Fixed remastersys-gtk.py to copy progress_bar.png and progress_box.png for the plymouth theme generation as it was missing
    * Fixed issue with backup mode grub install
    * added remastersys-firstboot to remove ubiquity frontend icon from users desktop on backup mode after install - users can also add their own commands to this and it
    * will only run once after first boot and then disable itself
    * added removal of Trash from root for both modes and for users for backup mode
    * changed method of checking for Desktop type for ubiquity-frontend by looking for startkde in the process list
    * removed metacity and xterm as suggested dependencies

    Starting with 3.0.1-1 there is a firstboot system startup script that is used for backup mode to remove the install icon from the desktop and you can add whatever other custom commands you like in it. Just edit /etc/init.d/remastersys-firstboot and put your commands inbetween the lines indicated.

    Important New information for Ubuntu Lucid and newer!

    Starting with version 3.0.1-1 for Ubuntu there is a proper signed repository that can be added to your system.

    The Synaptic Method:

    1. In Firefox, go to :

    http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu/remastersys.gpg.key

    save file as text someplace where you can find it.

    2. In synaptic, go to Settings/Repositories; select "Authentication" tab and "Import Key File" just downloaded.

    3. Still in synaptic, go to "Other Software" tab and click "Add", then enter the apt line and replace oneiric with either lucid, maverick, or natty to match your Ubuntu version:

    deb http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu oneiric main

    4. Leave the repositories tab and "Reload".

    5. Search for "remastersys" and select for install. Edit/Apply Marked Changes.


    The Manual Method

    As root, download and apply the repository gpg key.

    wget -O - http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu/remastersys.gpg.key | apt-key add -

    Add the following line that corresponds to your version of Ubuntu to your /etc/apt/sources.list

    #Remastersys Lucid
    deb http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu lucid main

    #Remastersys Maverick
    deb http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu maverick main

    #Remastersys Natty
    deb http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu natty main

    #Remastersys Oneiric
    deb http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu oneiric main

    Now just apt-get update or reload in Synaptic to have the new Remastersys signed repository ready to use!

    Thanks.

    I goofed up on the 64 bit repo so I fixed it now. If anyone is using 64 bit Ubuntu, just reload in Synaptic or apt-get update now and you should be able to install remastersys.

    Re: Remastersys 3.0.1-1 for Ubuntu released

    Good news...

    However, I'm having difficulty in getting the sources working - having added the GPG key and the relevant entries in Synaptic, I get the following error message when I reload the repositories:

    Failed to fetch http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu/dists/natty/InRelease Unable to find expected entry 'main/source/Sources' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)
    Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


    64 bit 11.04.

    The sources.list entries are:

    deb http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu natty main
    deb-src http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu natty main

    The sources.list entries are:

    deb http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu natty main
    deb-src http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu natty main
    There is no src on the repo so you can remove that entry.

    Hi guys,

    I've installed this last version of remastersys in my kubuntu linux 11.10 but
    the gui interface is gtk, why I can't see the kde gui?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    At the moment there is no qt based gui. I may try to figure out how to port the gtk one over to qt as I'm using KDE as well but I can't make any promises right now.

    If anyone is proficient at pyqt and can help port it over, that would be great.

    I've started to work on a pyqt frontend myself and will try to have it ready for 3.0.2-1 but I can't make any promises.
