Hi everyone, I am now able to ceate an iso and include user settings by running the iso, making the required changes and then copying the contents of the user directory by placing it the /etc/skel directory via the approriate folder in config/ - there is now just one piece of the jigsaw missing - I usually install the speakup kernel module for blind users using the following steps:
apt-get install git-core libespeak-dev speakup-source
git clone git://hubbs.homedns.org/speakup.git
bunzip2 espeakup, tab
tar -xvf espeakup, tab
cd espeakup, tab
module-assistant auto-install speakup
Then I ddd 'speakup_soft' to /etc/modules and '/usr/bin/espeakup' to /etc/rc.local as root using gedit to edit them so speakup starts at boot.
However, although all of this works during the interactive chroot terminal, speakup does not run when the CD boots. Do I have incorporate kernel modules in a different way or at a different stage in the process in order to get this to work. All of the other acessibility setings are retained once the relevant user settings are put in /etc/skel, this is the only thing which doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions would be welcome. Live-helper really is an amazing tool, it is just going to take me a while to get used to all of the options it offers you. I am able to run scripts automatically now, and modify things using the interactive shell - obviously modifying the kernel or adding kernel modules is quite an advanced topic, but having speakup run is crucuial for blind users.
