    Ubuntu "Christian Edition" [technical discussion]

    Hi all,
    I am working on what has been a dream of mine for quite a while. It is a customized Ubuntu LiveCD that is geared towards Christians. The intent is not to seperate Christians from the Ubuntu community. In fact the idea is to bring them into the Ubuntu community. The first release will be a very simple customization of Dapper. Basically added GnomeSword Bible program and made some simple graphical changes. The default Ubuntu setup is still the same. I also had to remove a few packages to keep the .iso size below 700mb. I plan to add more Christian software and make some additional changes, without changing the basics of Ubuntu. I am currently only working with the i386 Ubuntu. Hopefully I will be able to work on the other Ubuntu releases as well.

    The next step is to find a server to host the .iso. My server simply does not have the capacity. I am humbly asking for someone who is interested in this project to donate some server space for the .iso. If anyone is interested please PM me.

    Also if anyone is interested in helping with the development of this project or has suggestions please let me know. I am very excited about this project and would love to get feedback from this wonderful community.

    God Bless, Jereme

    Will this CD include OpenLP?

    Honestly I had never heard of it. It looks like a perfect addition to Ubuntu Christian Edition. I will put it on the list for the next release. Thank you very much for the suggestion. Do you know if there is a deb package for it? That would make things a lot easier.

    Thanks again for letting me know about this.

    Unfortunately, I don't think there is a .deb for it.

    If you want to release a Christian Edition go for it. That is what is so great about Ubuntu, you have the freedom to do stuff like that. By the way, I consider myself an Agnostic.

    I think it's a great idea, but perhaps instead of creating a "Christian Edition", how about creating a repository with all the Christian software available for Ubuntu users to install, it would certainly save on bandwith, etc, and allow other Ubuntu users to install the software if they wish.

    Is GnomeSword the same as this?

    Also, did you include the gDesklet that has Bible verses... I forget what it's called.

    But one good thing about the CD is that you can give it for those people (or Churches or Christian communities) with bad or no internet connection.
