create Ubuntu customization packages



This tool allows you to create a "default settings" package for Ubuntu. The "ubuntu-defaults-template" script will generate a source package with the customizable settings (e. g. desktop/background.jpg and webbrowser/bookmarks-menu.txt). When built and installed, it will take the necessary actions to modify the system-wide defaults for desktops, programs, etc.

The main purpose for this is to provide a standard and safe way to create localized Ubuntu images, or OEM custom projects.

You can customize the following settings:

  • Web browser start page, default search engine, and bookmarks (supports Firefox right now)
  • Unity/Unity 2D launchers
  • Desktop background (for GNOME right now)
  • Default desktop session in LightDM/gdm
  • Default radio stations in Rhythmbox and Banshee
  • Extra dependencies (Depends: and Recommends:), i. e. packages that are installed by default on the customized image
  • Internationalization (default locale, keyboard layout, language support) (only for built images, not configured by the defaults package itself)
