Bug Description

I installed Live USB system creator (version 1.0.0) on Super Ubuntu (Live DVD), and it can't create a Live USB, it says
#############
Could not open /cdrom/.disk/info
Please run this application on a Ubuntu live system
or mount a Ubuntu live ISO to /cdrom
############
I think It must be because Super Ubuntu is made with remastersys, and I think the Live CD structure is different from Ubuntu's structure... but I'm not sure...

Remastered Super Ubuntu is not a supported system.

Changed in liveusb:
status: New → Won't Fix

Change these lines ->

def determinecaspersize(self):
        """Determine size of casper/ directory"""
        try:
            result = os.popen('du -sh /cdrom/casper').read()
            self.caspersize = int(str.split(result, "M")[0])

for ->

def determinecaspersize(self):
        """Determine size of casper/ directory"""
        try:
            result = os.popen('du -sm /cdrom/casper').read()
            self.caspersize = int(str.split(result)[0])

I tried changing the file:
/usr/share/python-support/liveusb/liveusb.py
Like Carles González Silva suggested, but it did not work :(
Well, thanks anyway... Any other ideas?
