Version 1.0
Author: Falko Timme

This guide explains how you can build customized Ubuntu (as well as Kubuntu/Xubuntu and Edubuntu) Live-CDs with the help of UCK (Ubuntu Customization Kit) on Ubuntu 9.04. UCK allows you to customize the language and the applications on the Live-CD.

I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!


1 Preliminary Note

In this example I will only change the language of the Live-CD to German. Of course, it is possible to make further modifications.
