How to create bootable USB Pendrive with Ecther on Ubuntu 18.10


Today we are looking at how to make a bootable USB drive in Ubuntu.  Ecther has become my favorite app to create bootable pendrives in Ubuntu as it does not only write bootable USB drives for Ubuntu-based distros but for any Operating System.  Enjoy!

As you can see in the video, we download the packaged, extract it, move it to the /opt folder and then in your normal filesystem we click on the appimages and it will give you an option to add Ecther to your system menu.

The reason why I moved it to the /opt folder is the following.  The opt folder is where nearly all third-party apps like Chrome store their data, so it is perfect and all your users have access to it.


Command Used:
sudo nautilus
