View Full Version : Help Building Live ISO

2022-02-17, 00:13
I've been using my own custom live ISO for a couple months now and really enjoy the versatility of it. That said, I use a "post boot" script to perform some additional actions because I couldn't figure out how to get it to work during the build. Here's a link to what I currently have https://github.com/gr4ysku11/kali-gr4ysku11-custom/blob/main/build.sh

and below is the code that I'd like to include into the image, instead of running a script after booting:

# create post-install script and include it in chroot
cat > kali-config/common/includes.chroot/usr/share/gr4ysku11/post-install.sh << EOF

# run this script as kali user, after live boot
# install vscode extensions
echo "installing vscodium extensions..."
codium --install-extension vscodevim.vim > /dev/null 2>&1
codium --install-extension ms-python.python > /dev/null 2>&1
codium --install-extension dendron.dendron-paste-image > /dev/null 2>&1

echo "copying kde config files..."
# copy config/database files for favorites and task manager
cp /usr/share/gr4ysku11/database* ~/.local/share/kactivitymanagerd/resources/
cp /usr/share/gr4ysku11/kactivitymanagerd-statsrc ~/.config
cp /usr/share/gr4ysku11/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc ~/.config/

# change default password
echo "logging out..."

# logout to reload plasma workspace
qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer logout 0 3 3

It takes quite a while for the build to fail, so trying to get it working is painful. If anyone has any ideas on how to get this working it would be much appreciated.
