This is for anyone who want to try building A full build of qubes os, this will include xfce, kde, i3 and gnome desktop environment which you can choose at installation. The gnome DE is actually a minimal gnome functionality, and there’s known bug (cosmetics). The packages is downloaded from fedora, I’ve only add dash to dock package.

We use pre-built qubes packages, how long the build is depends on your internet connection, we would change qubes kickstart and qubes dom0 comp with my own.

After finish, you could find your iso in ~/qubes-builder/iso

Here’s the video of this guide:

installation

Btw, you couldn’t use gnome built-in screencast since I’ve only provided the minimal gnome functionality, but it’s already good enough if you want to customize it. It need take some time for me to research about what package need to remove in dom0.
