What is UNetbootin? What do you need it for?If you use it to create bootable USB sticks, isn't it enough to do it as per instructions here?
1. Stick the USB stick in. By the end of the procedure, all previous data on it will be lost and it will only contain the bootable iso file.
2. Determine the device:
sudo ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb*
The device listed multiple times, with a number in the end and without, is the one to use. E.g. /dev/sdb
3. If you have automount enabled, unmount the device.
4. cd to the folder where the iso file is.
5. Create bootable device:
sudo dd if=filename.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M; syncThe device path is an example. However, it must be without number in the end.
Bottom line: UNetbootin not needed for creating bootable USB sticks.
