For those who like the Mint usb image maker

The Ubuntu start-up disk creator has proved, for me at least, very flaky.

Consequently, I always use the Mint version, which includes a usb formatter as well as writer.

This is where I get it from:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tsvetko.tsvetkov/trusty-backports

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install mintstick

I haven’t tested it in later versions of UM and so cannot confirm it works in them.

I tried it Steve and it seems to be hit & miss as to whether it succeeds in creating a bootable image!. :smiley:

I have tried other tools and it seems that nearly if not all; are broken at the moment?. :frowning:

Hi Wolfman. I am using 14.04 at the moment and it works well. So, I wonder if it is something that has changed in the OS in terms of its compatibility with these tools post 14.04?

You might be right there Steve, I haven’t tried it on 14.04 and am using 15.10 and 16.04 Alpha!. :smiley:
