Tutorial on how to write iso image to a USB stick in Ubuntu, Linux Mint.
There are many ways you can write a .iso image directly to a USB stick in Ubuntu and other Linux. In this guide, I use GNOME’s built-in utility ‘Disk’ to write .iso images.

- Plugin the USB stick to your desktop/laptop. USB would be auto detected.
- Go to the place where you have kept the disk image iso files. Right-click the image and choose
Open With -> Disk Image Writer.
- In the next window, choose the destination which is your USB drive from the dropdown. Click start restoring and provide root password when asked for.
- Wait till the restoring image process is complete.
Thats it. You have succesfully restored an iso image to USB stick using GNOME’s Disk tool.
