I had no idea what Ubuntu Customization kit was, but I downloaded it so as to help you and I found out what causes the bug, I also found a solution to the problem, after a 5-6 min search of the code. So, with some tricks on the code I managed to go till the screen that asks for the ISO, but I couldn't go further, as I didn't have an ISO downloaded, but I suspect that it should work fine from that point and after.

Ok, follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal (using Ctrl+Alt+T) and give: gksudo gedit /usr/lib/uck/

    Gedit will open.

  2. Now, replace all the text in the opened file with this text: (DO NOT select the numbers on the left)

    Save the file and close gedit and terminal.

  3. Re-run UCK.

Please let me now if it works further than selecting the ISO image, because I've tested till that point only (cause as I said before, I don't have an ISO to test it out!)

Also, note that this is not a permanent fix, it will probably cause some bugs in case you click 'Cancel' etc, but it will at least not crush and let you do the work.

Thank u hakermania, u have done a marvelous job for me.Right now I am away from home but will conquer it with what u said and post the reply here as soon as I reach home.But let me say that it runs up to it allows me to select the language for the ISO but disappears the moment I click "ok" and only the message comes out as "the application zenity closed unexpectedly". – beeju May 2 '12 at 10:00
Yes beeju, the same happened to me, but I fixed it and it doesn't crush (closes unexpectedly) at least till the point that asks for the ISO file! – hakermania May 2 '12 at 10:05
I am so pleased.I don't know what all those texts you wrote on pastbin.I just entered my password for the build.It works!!! – beeju May 2 '12 at 11:34
But it failed at last.I went through all the lines on terminal before I close it.From this I thought the temp folder in my Home folder made this problem.So I removed it from there.On running the package,it failed again and I deleted both resolvconf folder and resolv.conf with root power.Now it said this – beeju May 2 '12 at 12:33
Sorry, I don't know anything else about this :( – hakermania May 2 '12 at 13:41
