I'm in ubuntu 12.10 .I want to download Mint 13 but the only unetbootin the ubuntu Software center has is old. and doesn't include the latest Linux programs.(Linux Mint 13) So I WANT TO DOWNLOAD THE NEWEST VERSION OF UNETBOOTIN, which is 583 and install it in Ubuntu, so I've downloaded it to DOWNLOADS but how do I get it so I can use it. Ubuntu software center doesn't support updating Unetbootin.

Oops, my bad :)

So I just tried it from the site and got this.


dpkg-deb: error: `unetbootin-linux-583' is not a debian format archive

Looks like you need to do it in windows.

Hi Jon Anderson, have you seen this page? (first Google hit for "Linux Mint USB")

Follow the directions that begin "It is really simple..."

Unetbootin is not necessary (though you may use it, if you prefer the indirect method).
