Creating custom iso for live DVD

Postby vinoman on Sat Nov 03, 2012 9:56 am

Any suggestions for a program to create a custom live DVD from your existing Mint setup?

Here's some articles:

Wanted to create a live DVD with my Mint 13 Cinnamon setup to send to friends.

Looks like Remastersys and Reconstructor are popular. But neither of them is in Synaptic. What is the command to install from the correct repos?

Thanks, but after installing the key and repo address it still doesn't install:

dave-hpmint davek # deb http://www.remastersys.com/ubuntu precise main
No command 'deb' found, did you mean:
Command 'debc' from package 'devscripts' (main)
Command 'derb' from package 'libicu-dev' (main)
Command 'dab' from package 'bsdgames' (universe)
Command 'debi' from package 'devscripts' (main)
Command 'xdeb' from package 'xdeb' (universe)
deb: command not found
