I actually did the exact steps while writing the tutorial - so I know it is working.
Did you symlink the
/usr/share/manjaro-tools/iso-profiles folder to you
@fassil I can't even remember what I wrote
After going over it - now I know:
Since we create a symlink to a write proctected folder in
/usr/share/.... we need sudo to be able to create a new folder for the spin-off.
The folder is actually created as a sub folder
/usr/share/manjaro-tools/iso-profiles/ which is write protected, hence we use sudo to create the new folder.
That new folder we need to be writeable for the user - but since the owner for the
manjaro-tools folder is root:root we need to make it writeable for every one.
I have edited the text on the wiki to this
Create a folder for your spin
We create a new folder under the
iso-profiles folder for it. Remember that the
iso-profiles folder is symlinked so we actually create it under
sudo mkdir ~/iso-profiles/my-spin-off
/usr/share/manjaro-tools/iso-profiles folder is owned by root:root so to get write access to our new spin-off folder we need to change the permissions for that folder
sudo chmod o+w ~/iso-profiles/my-spin-off
