Mintstick is a GUI to write .img or .iso files to a USB Key. It can also format them.

Here is how to install it. You will have to use the command line (because the word Terminal is, apparently, scary for some people  :))
1. Download the package file
Code: [Select]
wget 'http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main/m/mintstick/mintstick_1.2.1_all.deb'2. Check if the output of the folowing command is f0116fa08ec827df80f677c02831d02d
Code: [Select]
md5sum mintstick_1.2.1_all.debIf it is go to the next step.
If it's not go to step 4 and then go to step 1
MD5sum: f0116fa08ec827df80f677c02831d02d
3. Install the package
Code: [Select]
sudo gdebi 'mintstick_1.2.1_all.deb'4. Remove the package file
Code: [Select]
rm mintstick_1.2.1_all.debThat's it. Now open the whisker menu > accessories and you'll see USB Stick Formatter and USB Image Writer.

You can also setup a custom action in Thunar for the USB image writer.
1. Open the Thunar file manager
2. Click on Edit and then on Configure custom actions
3. Add A new custom action by clicking on a '+' button
4. Enter this in the text boxes:
Name: Write to usb
Description: Selects .iso or .img file for writing to the usb drive.
Command:
Code: [Select]
mintstick -m iso -i %nIcon: You can skip this or choose your the icon of your choice.
5. Click on Appearance Conditions tab
6. In the File pattern enter:
Code: [Select]
*.iso;*.ISO;*.img;*.IMG7. Check 'Other files' and confirm by clicking on OK.
To use this to write files from the Desktop you will have to log out and back in.
Now you can right-click on any .iso or .img file and then write that file to usb drive.
