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.

uck has some additional dependencies that need to be satisfied. Click on Mark to accept these dependencies:
Click on Apply afterwards to start the installation:
Confirm your selection by clicking on Apply again:
Afterwards, uck and its dependencies are being installed:
Click on Close afterwards and leave Synaptic:
