    How can I make my own Ubuntu ISO?

    Hey guys, recently I installed Ubuntu 13.04 and installed a couple of programs that the company developers need and also graphically configured so it would have company colors and logos and stuff like that. A company themed Ubuntu.

    Now I was asked to make an .ISO so that everytime we install it in a new machine it will have all those programs and graphical configurations.
    Is there a way to do such thing? Or I can just save some settings and have to modify the rest manually?

    Thanks in advance.

    I haven't tried it myself but seems to be a guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization .

    Have a look at remastersys, I think it is exactly what you need.

    remastersys or system imager as it is now known will create an installable image (i.e. your very own distribution).

    another option is to simply clone the image with clonezilla or redobackup and then copy it on all computers you need to copy it too. clonezilla has a bit more options but interface is not so user friendly. you can also distribute the image via net.

    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
    User friendly disk backup: Redobackup

    Hmm, +1 for remastersys.

    This is why Redhat is more popular - they have kickstart. Kickstart can be used to do a scripted network install - super easy deployments.

    Remasterys doesn't seem to have repositories for Raring Ringtail, should I use the Quental Quetzal one?

    Thanks for all the answers by the way.

    In that case I would go for 12.04, Precise Pangolin, since it Long Time Support.

    Did you try the https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization solution?

    Ok wow, seems I got stuck way too fast.
    While following the instructions on how to make Chroot by typing the command



    sudo debootstrap --arch=$ARCH $RELEASE chroot
    I am making a 13.04 version so according to the guide (and to what I understand) it should be


    sudo debootstrap --arch=i386 13.04 chroot
    However when I type it, it says.

    E: No such script: /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts/13.04

    Man, using Ubuntu for the first time and be asked to do this right away is kinda hard. :/
