USB writers SOLVED

One of the best USB image writers is openSUSE studio writer. Mintstick also is very good. The gnome disk writer does the job but is very very slow. I know  how to write an ISO from the cli but can anyone advise me on a FAST GUI program that's available on bunsenlabs (debian)?

Re: USB writers SOLVED

You could try etcher-electron, if you don't mind proprietary stuff.

Re: USB writers SOLVED

for windows, many recommend rufus.
for linux, i'd only ever use dd. there's also ddgtk (andprobably many more...).

Re: USB writers SOLVED

This https://github.com/openSUSE/imagewriter seems to build fine on stretch (or I just happen to have all the happy dependencies installed).

qmake DEFINES=USEUDISKS2 imagewriter.pro
make
sudo ./imagewriter # or gksu ./imagewriter

Haven't tested if it works for real.

Thanks. Unfortunately I don't seem to have qmake installed. Of what package is it part of?

Hmm. Compiling needs meson and ninja. I have no idea what these programs are and what package I need to install to get them.

Etcher seems to be an opensource project (?). The AppImage works very well.

apt install meson ninja-build
# and probably
apt install qt4-qmake

That's what I use. dd for Linux, and rufus for Windows. No need to complicate the issue.

Yes, it does. I've both installed it and used the AppImage, and been happy with both.
As for whether it's open source... dunno.
