I am trying to make a bootable flash drive with Linux on it for my Mac. I have Ubuntu desktop downloaded, and it is in my downloads. The instructions on the Ubuntu website tell me I need to convert the ISO to IMG (of course, because its a Mac, and I cannot boot otherwise, so converting is necessary). This is the terminal command they tell me to run:
hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o ~/path/to/target.img ~/path/to/ubuntu.iso
I understand I need to replace both paths, and I know I need to change the ubuntu.iso path to the file located in my downloads, but what path do I put in the place of
~/path/to/target.img? Can someone give a specific example? I tried putting
~/Users/Gurpreet/Desktop/target.img, but it says no such file or directory. I understand that there is not a file named target.img on my desktop. What path do I use? Specific example and help will get 10 points.
