TODO - make a proper page
Used for preparing a LiveUSB for Linux distributions' .ISO files. Instead of using a CD or DVD, this lets one use a USB stick.

For reasons unknown to me, the everyday Lubuntu 14.04 install I have been using cannot run the Linux version. It complains about a library which is missing which I do actually have. A symlink would have probably solved this, but what I had been doing was to
- boot from a (32bit!) liveUSB
\sudo \apt-get install p7zip-full
- running it, etc
- Cannot specify an ISO directly from the commandline.
Does not suggest the directory it's being run from as the location to begin from when browsing for an ISO file.
- It will do this if you browse to it once. I don't know how it retains this knowledge.
Does not have a facility to format a drive.
- Must manually delete files, which is time consuming. It's much faster to reformat the drive.
Cannot abort the install process if it finds a file it wishes to overwrite.

I used this extensively, during my 2011-08-12 Linux testing nightmare.
A note from CrunchBang:
./unetbootin-linux-549: error while loading shared libraries: libgthread-2.0.so. 0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
\sudo \apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk
