How to solve a bug in Imagewriter (write a.img file on a USB device)


This week in our Linux Page (in Spanish) we posted a brief suggestion about a problem (better a bug) we found when you used Imagewriter. In fact we tried to write an image on a USB key but it stopped different times reporting in “Details”, as last information /dev/sdh successfully unmounted; where sdh was obviously our USB key. First of all, using (System – Administration) Synaptic Package Manager, we tried to reinstall Imagewriter but only after some time on internet we solve the mistery… For some reasons Imagewriter runs better if the .img file is as near as possible to the Home folder. In our case we copied the image file on the User folder after the Home and in the next test we made we successfully wrote the file on sdh (our USB device). We hope this simple tip could be useful for some of you! AddThis mp3 link
