Alright. Almost there. I did everything listed. Everything worked, except for one thing. i still don't have my wallpaper. i have all my themes, settings, icons, packages, Kernel, Everything. Just no Wallpaper. doesn't look like they are being put on the image at all. the path to the wallpaper is set correctly in the .xml file. there is just no wallpaper there to apply. Its not on the completed image.
so what do i do now?

i found a way to do it. When the automated process is done building the image and starts to place it into the .iso i hit control + C and cancel it. then i have the raw image in the xfce configs folder. i manually add the Wallpapers and things into those folders where they need to go. then restart the Build. It picks up where it left off and proceeds to compress those files into the .iso. i'm sure that isn't the proper way to do it. But it seems to have worked. if anyone knows of a more proper way of doing this let me know.
