UNetbootin has been updated recently to version 577 which added support for more Linux distributions. In this tutorial, we will see how to install this latest version under Ubuntu/Linux Mint from our custom PPA. As a reminder, UNetbootin is an application with GUI that allows users to create bootable Live USB drives (flash drives) for most Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, BackTrack, CentOS, openSUSE, etc.
WIth UNetbootin, you can either download distros from the Internet or use ISO files stored in your hard drive to create Live USB drives. For more information about this application, you can refer to this website.
