For those non-MX or non-antiX linux users who might need to write iso images to USB sticks, we now have the joint antiX/MX live-usb-maker tool available as an AppImage. The tool has been tested on Manjaro, Debian buster and stretch, arch, Porteus, gentoo, xubuntu and ubuntu. You can use it to make a “disc-on-a-stick” similar to etcher, and if you happen to be making a antiX/MX family live-usb, you can use the “full-featured” mode as well to be able to access our persistence features right on the first boot of your live-usb!
Many thanks to all the testers and to adrian (gui) & BitJam (live-usb-maker backend) for their help in getting the AppImage running.
The 64bit-only AppImage (sorry , no 32 bit) is available here: https://github.com/MX-Linux/lum-qt-appimage/releases/tag/19.11.02
Download the archive file containing the AppImage, extract to a folder, enter that folder, and use
sudo ./ live-usb-maker-qt-19.11.02.x86_64.AppImage
to run the AppImage.
There is a known issue in that the help button does not work from the AppImage. An online version of the help is available here: https://mxlinux.org/wiki/help-files/help-mx-live-usb-maker/
