    Create a Live Ubuntu Variant with gnome replacing unity.


    I want to create a live distro with only the needed applications installed but with gnome fallback and if possible the old Gnome ie, Gnome v2+.
    The application I mostly need are
    1. Google Chorme
    2. VLC and other audio codecs
    3. Evince
    4. leafpad, gedit
    5. LibreOffice
    6. Qtransmission
    7. SpeedCrunch
    8. Irssi
    9. Finch
    10. ttytter
    11. adobe Flash player

    also to do some programming python 3

    I know doing all this on an ubuntu Installed version is easy but making a live CD is quite tough.
    Need guided instruction as I am a newbie to such work.

    Gnome 2 was forked to the Mate desktop

    To create the live CD have a look at remastersys. Basically, you install and configure Ubuntu how you want (with certain limitations) and use remastersys to create the iso. Lots of good info at the link.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
