live-installer is a tool to automate the installation of Linux distributions. At present it consists of
a GTK frontend and a core engine written in the Python language.

How does it work?

live-installer will only work on live distributions as its name suggests. It will do everything required
to install the live-system (via the squashfs or similar) to the disk and make it into a usable system

Getting live-installer

You’ll need to run the following command to clone the latest source of live-installer
git clone http://github.com/linuxmint/live-installer.git
The Debian scripts are already provided so that you may build a .deb package
cd live-installer
