Problem with Ubuntu Customization Kit

Asked by Enrico Alletto

I launched Ubuntu Customization Kit of 16.04 LTS but it gives me this error:

Salvataggio in: "index.html"

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said :

Ubuntu Customization Kit has not been developed for years, and has the note
on its Launchpad homepage.

Recent Ubuntu releases differ from previous ones in a manner, that certain steps of UCK now fail.

I can give some advice:
  1. deselect all language packages that contain the string -touch- in their name
  2. modify /usr/lib/uck/customization-profiles/localized_cd/customize_iso and change in line ~84 (the longest line in the whole file) the part

... $(zgrep gz ...
... $(zgrep xz ...

and three lines later

tar xfz *.tar.gz ||
tar xfJ *.tar.xz ||

You might read recent questions and bugs related to UCK on Launchpad. These recommendations (and some more) have already been given to other persons with similar problems.

Can you help with this problem?
