Creating A Live/Install USB On A Mac

Postby henrymound on Tue Mar 06, 2012 11:11 pm

Hello, I have been surfing the forums of Linux Mint for a long time now and I know people have been having trouble creating a live Linux USB on a Mac. I know that Windows users have a great application that will build a live USB for you. I set out to do the same thing on a Mac. I believe I have come up with a great solution for OSX. It was originally intended just for Ubuntu users but I have found that it works really well for Linux Mint users as well. Anyway, if you want to check it out you can download the Linux USB Builder for free at http://www.penguintosh.com it works for both Snow Leopard and Lion. I would be greatfull for feedback of any kind. I have enclosed a screenshot to give you an idea of what the app looks like and how it works. I hope you like it!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Would also love to know if this has worked for anyone else on ML. I will try it anyway to see, but am having no success in getting LM into a 4 year old MBP with (stupidly) ML recently installed. :(
