The following is a way to install "Etcher" for Debian. Ignore the lines starting with # sign, they are descriptive only. The rest are copy/pasted into your Terminal.

#Add Etcher debian repository:

echo "deb https://deb.etcher.io stable etcher" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list


#Trust Bintray.com's GPG key:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 379CE192D401AB61

#Update and install:


sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install balena-etcher-electron


#Uninstall

sudo apt-get remove balena-etcher-electron

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list

sudo apt-get update
That worked! Thanks!

Hi.

I,m using the appimage downloaded from Etchers web site. It works without problems. I only made a folder for the appimage, and then I made an shortcut on my desktop. When I launched the shortcut the permissions was set up correctly (and made executable). And everything just works..
Very easy. If only Ether would make the usb stick with fat32. It did not, so I had to revert to Rufus on Windows (shame) for reformatting. When I tried Gparted, It saw my 4gig usb stick as an 16 gig...

But etcher is the best for sd cards

Gparted can probably format SD cards and I know it can format USB sticks. There's also mintstick in the repositories which adds a USB formatting tool (and a read-only USB burner) to the Accessories menu. MX Live USB Maker can burn ISOs to USB sticks including ISOs from other Linux distros, and WoeUSB can burn Windows ISOs and create bootable USB sticks or optical disks. So MX already has tools available that can do the same job as Etcher.

Thanks!

Huh? It's asking you a question, and you can answer it in the space below with a "y" or (as it says) just hit return to take the (capitalized) default.

Sorry, I meant this part.

I'm paranoid because on previous distros that I have used installing anything with a slight error could (and did) break my install.
I'll go ahead and type Y and install this.
Sorry for the misunderstanding and thanks.
