Have just bought a new USB pen drive and i wanted to install a Linux operating system on it and make it bootable. But after going to Synaptic Package Manager i was surprised to find that UNetbootin is not available? Is there any other software that is compatible with a Linux os out there i can use please?

There is this web page that list up software alternatives. In this case:
https://alternativeto.net/software/unetbootin/
I won't let an old, but fully functional computer die just because some company tell me that they won't make no more security updates to their OS. Thanks Linux :)

Etcher or just use 'Restore disk image'  function on the Disks app already on LinuxLite.

I use MintStick to format USB thumb drives and write .iso images to them.  You can get it here.  Just click a couple of times and done!

@colin ,


I concur with @charvie  to use Disks first.  Go to Menu, System, Disks (if not there, it's Menu, Settings, Disks).  Highlight your USB drive on the left and use the menu to select Restore Image.  You'll be prompted to select your *.iso file.  Then it will make the image bootable on your USB.


As an alternative, you can use Etcher (https://www.balena.io/etcher/).


Avoid UNetbootin (inconsistent results), and avoid installing something when what you already have installed will work fine.

In my experience, etcher's given great results when creating live USBs in Linux. And if you have a Windows machine at hand, Rufus is the best, in fact, I wish there was a Linux version but the developer has said he won't port it.
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)
