I got some stops from using UCK creating a Mate 15.10 image.

I have:

uck 2.4.7-0ubuntu2

LSB Version:    core-2.0-amd64:core-2.0-noarch:core-3.0-amd64:core-3.0-noarch:core-3.1-amd64:core-3.1-noarch:core-3.2-amd64:core-3.2-noarch:core-4.0-amd64:core-4.0-noarch:core-4.1-amd64:core-4.1-noarch:security-4.0-amd64:security-4.0-noarch:security-4.1-amd64:security-4.1-noarch

There is serie of expansion errors in the main script, and unmet dependencies. How to make it works?

Which changes are needed in order to make it create the ISO?

UCK main script needs some updates.

Issue 1:

Missing dependency: gfxboot-theme-ubuntu

Solve it with:

sudo apt-get install gfxboot-theme-ubuntu

Issue 2:

A mess with locales. I just didn't check locales I still have installed (no check at all). UCK will take them from the current installation.

Issue 3:

Missing files.

I give you here my modified /usr/lib/uck/customization-profiles/localized_cd/customize_iso, in order to make it works (changes from the original one are tagged "HS"):

# NAME:
#    customize_iso -- customize iso image outside of root FS
#
# SYNOPSIS:
#    customize_iso [remaster_home] [customization_scripts_dir]
#
# DESCRIPTION:
#    This procedure performs additional customization that needs to
#    happen outside of the image of the root file system:
#        - Configuration of the boot environment
#            - isolinux configuration
#            - gfxboot configuration (language/keyboard support!)
#            - propagation of a new kernel/initrd
#            - Simple bootmanager (directory "install" in image)
#        - Configuration of additional resources outside the root FS
#            - Add-Ons (like sample document/music/video files)
#            - More Add-Ons (like OSS for Win / Mac)
#
# NOTES:
#    Execution of the procedure may require Internet access to download
#    the source of the latest version gfxboot-theme-ubuntu.
#
#    If a local copy of gfxboot-theme-ubuntu is available in the remaster
#    home, it will be used instead of a (possibly updated) download.

Issue 4

Missing mate terminal for customization operations by command line.

I changed function run_console() in file /usr/lib/uck/customization-profiles/localized_cd/customize:

function run_console()
{
    echo "Starting console application..."

    CONSOLE_APP=`which konsole`
    CONSOLE_APP_OPTIONS=(--caption "UCK customization console" -e /bin/bash)
    if [ "$CONSOLE_APP" = "" ]; then
        CONSOLE_APP=`which gnome-terminal`
        CONSOLE_APP_OPTIONS=(-t "UCK customization console" -e /bin/bash)
    fi
    if [ "$CONSOLE_APP" = "" ]; then
        CONSOLE_APP=`which xfce4-terminal`
        CONSOLE_APP_OPTIONS=(-T "UCK customization console" -e /bin/bash)
    fi
    if [ "$CONSOLE_APP" = "" ]; then
        CONSOLE_APP=`which lxterminal`
        CONSOLE_APP_OPTIONS=(-t "UCK customization console" -e /bin/bash)
    fi
        if [ "$CONSOLE_APP" = "" ]; then
                CONSOLE_APP=`which mate-terminal`
                CONSOLE_APP_OPTIONS=(-t "UCK customization console" -e /bin/bash)
        fi
    if [ "$CONSOLE_APP" = "" ]; then
        CONSOLE_APP=`which xterm`
        CONSOLE_APP_OPTIONS=(-title "UCK customization console" -e /bin/bash)
    fi

    if [ "$CONSOLE_APP" = "" ]; then
        dialog_msgbox "Failure" "Unable to find any console application"
    else
        eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session 2>/dev/null`
        $CONSOLE_APP "${CONSOLE_APP_OPTIONS[@]}"
