[OPEN] Two questions about building my iso

Post by jayid »

Hello, I'm planning to make a big iso with all DEs and WMs installed for the purpose of demonstrating them to my classmates. However two issues came to me before I actually started to build.

1. I assume building an iso with all DEs and WMs is possible, but will it be a nightmare to try to get the correct and non-conflicting packages? Can one just simply copy paste sections of packages.x86_64 from each DEs and expect it to work?

2.Some of my friends don't speak English. Is it possible to have the locale (along with a little customization about the input method) done within building the iso, or does this belong to phase 6?

See these examples
Gi Joe - gnome and i3

Xtended - openbox with a lot of TWMs
https://arcolinuxb.com/creation-of-arco ... be-series/

If you can make those - you can make yours

Only 'real desktops' have the manpower to translate into all the languages of the world. TWMs do not have that luxury.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
