Question Some Specifications about Customizing Ubuntu ISO


Hi Guys,
I already know how to customize an Ubuntu ISO, and all of the software I want I have already put on it. However, how and where do I insert a nautilus script so that when the OS is installed to the HD (or some other media), my script will be on the HD in the ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts directory?

Thanks,
flouran

A good place to try is /etc/skel. Thats where scripts and other stuff you want to put in a users home directory when an account is created lives.

No, that doesn't work unfortunately. Also, if this helps at all, the following is the guide I am using to customize Ubuntu: http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/10038.

Talking I Figured it Out!

I figured it out from the UPR website:
Code:
sudo cp -a ~/upr-files/nautilus-scripts/Truecrypt/ \
~/live/edit/etc/skel/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/
sudo cp -a ~/upr-files/*.mo ~/live/edit/usr/share/locale/

Thanks for the info, many questioners never relay their successes back here.
It is appreciated.
