The documentation about remastersys can be found here.

Here is how to install remastersys, type the following in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mutse-young/remastersys
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install remastersys remastersys-gtk

Then to open the application, type in remastersys-gtk followed by Enter.


First of all, you need ubiquity to be installed. If your system has 64-bit architecture install libxmu6 before installing ubiquity:

sudo apt-get install libxmu6:i386

Then add 32-bit support:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

After that install ubiquity via Synaptic, and install remastersys (or Pinguy Builder).
