Prompt Attempting to build Liquid Smooth ROM for captivate glide

First off i'm going to say, I know SOME BASIC CODING (I developed some for windows and a little bit on android)
I decided to TRY to build our Captivate glide users more KitKat roms!
So basically I have the source for liquid smooth but I don't know what to do from there (Remember I'm new so don't blow up on me,I'm trying!)
If there is a guide on how to build or you guys can help me on this that would be great!
I was following this guide:
[GUIDE][AOSPA:v3.+] How to Compile AOSPA from Source : + Support and Maintenance
Instead of compiling PA, I decided to use Liquid Smooth (for the life of me couldn't find PA android 4.4.2 REPO!)
did what the guide said and now i'm stuck here:
VERY IMPORTANT: Now, before the final stage sync, make sure there's no code referring to 'ParanoidPreferences' in manifest.

To check that

1) Open your File Browser,
2) Press Ctrl+H (to show hidden files/directories)
3) Navigate to android/system/.repo/manifest.xml
(Right Click & open the XML file in text editor)

*REMOVE GROUPER DEVICE TREE FROM MANIFEST* (This'll be useless, unless you're compiling for Grouper: Nexus 7)

-> Now, Lets add the device specific trees:

Add your own device tree, kernel tree, hardware source tree, & vendor proprietaries tree in the local manifest.

For this, create a new file .repo/local_manifest.xml, & use something in similar terms:

For example, I'm using all corresponding trees for Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 - International
Following is just an example, not what you should copy/paste. SEARCH & USE YOUR OWN DEVICE SPECIFIC TREES
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project name="ParanoidAndroid/android_device_samsung_i9300" path="device/samsung/i9300" remote="github" revision="cm-10.2" />
<project name="CyanogenMod/android_kernel_samsung_smdk4412" path="kernel/samsung/smdk4412" remote="github" revision="cm-10.2" />
<project name="ParanoidAndroid/android_device_samsung_smdk4412-common" path="device/samsung/smdk4412-common" remote="github" revision="cm-10.2" />
<project name="TheMuppets/proprietary_vendor_samsung" path="vendor/samsung" remote="github" revision="cm-10.2" />
<project name="CyanogenMod/android_packages_apps_SamsungServiceMode" path="packages/apps/SamsungServiceMode" remote="github" revision="cm-10.2" />
<project name="CyanogenMod/android_hardware_samsung" path="hardware/samsung" remote="github" revision="cm-10.2" />
I also didn't download the repo into /android/system like it says, I put it into /liquid (followed this) How to compile liquid smooth
Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm eager to learn how to do this!
My setup
Ubuntu 13.10 x64

Well this attempt to develop is on stand still until I go off on my ISP for shutting off my services because we "apparently" did't pay enough when we did!
