Customize Wubi for Peppermint Linux

Asked by Joey Carlini on 2012-07-30

I know that there are spins of Wubi that allow for Mint to be installed, but how would I go about modifying Wubi to install something like Peppermint OS, which incorporates parts of Ubuntu, and Mint, and an LXDE environment. Seems close enough that I don't have to reinvent the wheel, but the wiki on recompiling Wubi reads like Greek to me and I could use something a little more hand holdy. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Here's a link where someone else is trying to do the same http://askubuntu.com/q/167617/14916

I didn't get much feedback but why don't you review it and then let me know where you are getting stuck.

After tinkering, I can get an .exe compiled, and narrowed down the isolist.ini as the first thing I need to change, but I have no idea what to put in to make peppermint an option when it comes to Desktop Packages, meta link, and the whatnot.

The metalink defines the ISO and how and from where it can be downloaded. e.g. http://releases.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.metalink

I don't know what meta package includes all of Peppermint linux default. It is required that the lupin package is included: https://launchpad.net/lupin/

I've never done this personally, so if you need more info I suggest you ask in #ubuntu-installer on IRC. The developers evand and cjwatson would know what's going on.

Can you help with this problem?
