Hi Federico,

Now there are two new tarballs without tweaks at phillw.net for you to test

06b3fe52a56a3af758ef48b59b9e3b24  tarballs/Lubuntu_13.10oct30.tar.xz
4c5259a774d0945b08a8d7515e192f68  tarballs/Lubuntu_13.10oem-oct30.tar.xz

'Lubuntu_13.10oem-oct30.tar.xz' is for OEM guys (like you)

'Lubuntu_13.10oct30.tar.xz' is for end users (after the OEM guy has
clicked the icon in the top left corner)

There is at least one glitch: The end user is given the opportunity to
select language, but it will not be installed properly at the
installation (at least not Swedish, that I tested). But when the user
selects (from the main menu)

Preferences--Language Support

and installs the relevant language, it will work after the next reboot.

Do you know if this can be improved (without installing all languages at
the OEM level)?

Best regards
