Hi Phill,

You wrote

'At present, with people reporting issues with mkusb 
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/mkusb The only way we know that WILL 
work 100% of the time is dd'

at the Lubuntu Facebook web site, and you allowed me to get into it. I 
looked at the issues of the last few weeks, but did not find any post 
with complaints about mkusb. I read quickly and probably missed them, 
but anyway, please post links to the posts you know of.

I would like to find out what is the problem

- a bug in mkusb or

- using it in the wrong way or

- some other problem, for example a bad iso file (I read your heads up 
message about checking the downloaded file).

To my knowledge, mkusb works from and to all currently supported Ubuntu 
versions and desktop flavours, and mkusb-nox works with text screens, 
for example in Ubuntu Server. They work in many other linux distros too. 
There is also mkusb-bas for small or very old linux distros/versions, 
for example Wary Puppy and Tiny Core. See this link for more details.


If bugs are found in mkusb, I will give high priority to solving them.

Best regards
