Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, MintStick, a graphical interface for the DD tool (disk dump), that allows the user to create bootable pendrives or memory cards, of their favourite Linux distro. The tool will also come with a USB Stick Formatter function which is also integrated in the Nemo and Dolphine file manger, in order to help the user format the pendrive / memory card as FAT, NTFS, EXT3, EXT4 or any other format.

The latest version available is MintStick 1.2.1, which has been released a while ago.

To install MintStick 1.2.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 derivatives, we have to download the deb package from the Linux Mint pool and install the package via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg, due to the fact that it also handles dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main/m/mintstick/mintstick_1.2.1_all.deb
$ sudo gdebi mintstick_1.2.1_all.deb

Optional, to remove mintstick, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove mintstick
