Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, dd utility is an easy to use Unix and Linux tool, for creating backups and ISO images, ideal for writing disk images to memory cards and flashing IMG files to SD cards, for different singleboard ARM computers.
The latest version available is dd utility 1.4, which has been recently released.
In this article I will show you how to install dd utility 1.4 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, Deepin, Peppermint, LXLE, Linux Lite, Debian, SparkyLinux and other Ubuntu and Debian derivative systems.
Because it is not available via any PPA or repository, we have to download the ddutility 1.4 package from the project’s website and install it via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies. Like this:
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget https://www.thefanclub.co.za/sites/default/files/public/downloads/ddutility_1.4_all.deb
$ sudo gdebi ddutility_1.4_all.deb
Optional, to remove ddutility, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove ddutility
