I tried to use Startup Disk Creator on my Ubuntu 18.04 LTS machine to burn Manjaro 20.0.3 xfce to a bootable usb stick. I always use this tool without any problem, e.g. Xubuntu, Debian. But I can't find Manjaro iso file to proceed:

enter image description here

Here is my Startup Disk Creator version:

$ usb-creator-gtk --version

Why do I encounter this the problem with Manjaro?

  • I wrote on the title. I can't burn it. I can't select manjaro on the iso panel of the program.

  • You can't burn a USB stick, only a CD or DVD - unless we're talking literal fire of course

  • @Panki The term might be disputable but it is clear.

  • You can use 1. Disks alias gnome-disks that is bundled with Ubuntu, or 2. if you want to install mkusb. It can clone a live drive of Manjaro (but not make a persistent live drive of that distro). -- The Startup Disk Creator 'does not want to' create drives that lack some internal structure typical for Ubuntu (and similar distros).

I used Gnome Multiboot. It had no problem burning Manjaro ISOs from within Xubuntu and it's even in the Ubuntu repositories already.

sudo apt install gnome-multi-writer

Ubuntu package is not capable of making bootable USB for many non Ubuntu distributions

For Manjaro try using Ventoy ; Etcher or Multiboot USB


Just use dd command wish is too sample

sudo dd status=progress if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdX

change the path to the iso and the device
