I'm having a problem with my preseed file for Ubuntu 20.04.

I'm trying to remove Rhythmbox, Thunderbird, Libreoffice and Remmina which are installed by default (I first checked on an install the package names), so I wrote :

d-i preseed/late_command string \
in-target apt remove -y --purge rhythmbox thunderbird libreoffice-core remmina

Everything is going fine and as soon as I log in, it didn't work at all, everything I wanted to delete is there :(

Could somebody please help me? Thanks in advance :)

  • Do you have the logs from the installation? These could be snaps. – muru Aug 19 '20 at 7:41
  • Where did i find them ? – math3r0se Aug 19 '20 at 7:52
  • I found the /var/log/installer/syslog file : pastebin.com/5tUSSTja – math3r0se Aug 19 '20 at 8:14

I found the solution ! I replaced d-i preseed/late_command string in-target by ubiquity ubiquity/success_command string in-target and it works :D
