Goes without saying but I am very new to Linux and Ubuntu.
For several years I have had the idea that I would like to create my own "laptop" using a liveCD with the applications I need.
Tried to follow this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization
My first goal was the following:
1. Delete some language packs I do not need
2. Install Google Chrome as a browser
Basically I do a couple of: aptitude purge language-pack-de-base
and then: sudo apt-get install chromium-browser (this require some extra steps, but I get a feeling that it works because I can start the browser from my work directory.
I do the cleanup steps and create my ISO... it end at 23Mb.
Running the tests I DO get the splash screen and can select to start liveCD. This gives me a black screen with a flashing cursor in the top left corner.
Obviously something is missing? Do I have to install everything I want on the CD? I thought starting from an existing ISO like in the guide I would keep everything that I do not remove?
