Starting with 3.0.1-1 there is a firstboot system startup script that is used for backup mode to remove the install icon from the desktop and you can add whatever other custom commands you like in it.  Just edit /etc/init.d/remastersys-firstboot and put your commands inbetween the lines indicated.

Important New information for Ubuntu Lucid and newer!

Starting with version 3.0.1-1 for Ubuntu there is a proper signed repository that can be added to your system.

The Synaptic Method:

1. In Firefox, go to :
save file as text someplace where you can find it.

2.  In synaptic, go to Settings/Repositories; select "Authentication" tab and "Import Key File" just downloaded.

3.  Still in synaptic, go to "Other Software" tab and click "Add", then enter the apt line and replace oneiric with either lucid, maverick, or natty to match your Ubuntu version:

    deb oneiric main

4.  Leave the repositories tab and "Reload".

5.  Search for "remastersys" and select for install.  Edit/Apply Marked Changes.

The Manual Method

As root, download and apply the repository gpg key.

wget -O - | apt-key add -

Add the following line that corresponds to your version of Ubuntu to your /etc/apt/sources.list

#Remastersys Lucid
deb lucid main

#Remastersys Maverick
deb maverick main

#Remastersys Natty
deb natty main

#Remastersys Oneiric
deb oneiric main

Now just apt-get update or reload in Synaptic to have the new Remastersys signed repository ready to use!
