this is what lh does automatically anyway and shouldn't be needed. also,
the reason of the failure above is not grub (grub can't detect the root
partition, but it's actually good that it can't, since it doesn't need
to, the resulting system is a live system, not a regular one, and it
should not be tainted with information from your host system).
it's desktop-base that is failing with recent updates in grub. it's a
know bug, the respective maintainers are sorting things out.

this is not from 'lh chroot', but binary_chroot, which means you have
not called 'lh chroot' above, but 'lh build'.
if you would call 'lh chroot', then you would not need to interrupt it
and it would exactely do what you want (and not more).

why? i don't have any numbers at hand, but i don't think it makes much
of a difference, compression wise.

you might want to exclude it with '-and -not -path "/usr/share/man/*" or
something like that.

so you still want a squashfs image then? i strongly recommend that
you're letting lh build that squashfs (including the copying of the
chroot), otherwise you have no guarantee that the resulting filesystem
image is clean and working.

indeed, system-config-printer is named system-config-printer-gnome in
ubuntu. i've updated the gnome list in git to reflect that, thanks.

nice to hear, thanks for sharing.
