    Step by step walkthrough for creating custom spin

    Hello all,
    This is my first post here but I'm a long time Linux user.

    What I want to do is create a custom iso to install. I want it to have only certain components of KDE. I have been researching and trying this for 2 days now.

    Can anyone point me to a link which has a soup-to-nuts detailed guide on doing this? I have downloaded the programs to do it but there is very little detailed information on using them.

    Thanks, Charles.

    this is the method I used for a customised MATE spin. you could apply the same techniques for KDE:

    Thank much for the reply. It was very helpful.
    After following the directions, I get "dracut-live package is missing from the kickstart." Googled around quite a bit but didnt find any solutions. Can I ask for another link/lead?

    Re: Step by step walkthrough for creating custom spin

    I know this is a fairly old thread, but here is a wiki that I wrote a year or so ago. It is for xfce4 but using a kickstart for kde you can eliminate whatever you like (and add as well) -- just use a minus sign (-) in front of a group or package that normally comes with the kde-plasma spin in the last section (%packages section); example:
    %packages
    -calligra
    -qupzilla
    -@firefox (the "@" refers to a group of packages; doing this would eliminate the installation of firefox which comes with kde-plasma

    Hope this is helpful for anyone who happens to read this thread.
