So today we are back with something interesting!
So now we are in Linux!

So the software we are using is "UNetbootin",this is a very easy to use with a simplified UI.
The benifit is that you can directly download from many linux distro directly from this softwre and even number of versions are listed like in Ubuntu,!4.04,13.10,12.04 etc are already listed you just need to select them and done,not only that if you have .iso file of any linux distro then you have option to use it too!

 WARNING: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE MADE A BACK UP OF THE DATA ON USB DRIVE AS IT WILL GET FORMATTED IN THE PROCESS!

Install UNetbootin:
Remember our three ways to install software in ubuntu?
Yup that goes here too!

  • Using SYnaptic Package Manager:So another way is to install it from Synaptic Package Manager,just search for UNetbootin and mark it up for Installation and click on apply and let it get installed.
  • Using Terminal:So Just fire up terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T simultaneously and then type the following command
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gezakovacs/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unetbootin
  • Now after installing Unetbootin just launch it.
