I'm trying to create my own iso image based on Ubuntu 12.10 and I've got several questions.

1) How can I add user using preseed? I tried to do it this way, but I still have to enter the password in the graphical installation:

d-i passwd/user-fullname string kiosk
d-i passwd/username string kiosk
d-i passwd/user-password password 123
d-i passwd/user-password-again password 123
d-i passwd/user-uid string 2020
d-i user-setup/allow-password-weak boolean true

2) Is it possible to change a set of screenshots and the text that is displayed in the graphical installer?

3) How can I handle late_command in preseed file (after installation I want to configure system, install deb-packages, etc.) I tried to do it this way:

d-i preseed/late_command string mkdir /target/install/; 
cp -R /cdrom/extra/* /target/install/; 
chroot /target chmod +x /install/postinstall.sh; 
chroot /target bash /install/postinstall.sh

Thanks, but in your answers I can't find solution of my problem, because there says nothing about preseed –  chacha Apr 11 '13 at 6:24
