Draft inline for installing USB image with GNOME Disks

parent c4e3abb9
1. Start <span class="application">GNOME Disks</span> (also called
<span class="application">Disks</span>).
<div class="debian">
XXX Need to update example below (GNOME has "Activities" instead of an "Applications" menu)
For example, you can choose <span class="menuchoice">
<span class="guimenu">Applications</span>&nbsp;▸
<span class="guisubmenu">Utilities</span>&nbsp;▸
<span class="guimenuitem">Disks</span></span>.
</div>
<div class="upgrade">
Choose <span class="menuchoice">
<span class="guimenu">Applications</span>&nbsp;▸
<span class="guisubmenu">Utilities</span>&nbsp;▸
<span class="guimenuitem">Disks</span></span>.
</div>

1. Plug the USB stick in the computer.
A new drive appears in the left pane. Click on it.
[[!img install/inc/screenshots/gnome_disks_drive.png link="no" alt=""]]
1. Click on the
[[!img lib/open-menu.png alt="Menu" class="symbolic" link="no"]] button in
the titlebar and choose
<span class="guimenuitem">Restore Disk Image&hellip;</span>.
[[!img install/inc/screenshots/gnome_disks_menu.png link="no" alt=""]]
If your version of <span class="application">GNOME Disks</span> is
old it might have a
[[!img lib/emblem-system.png alt="System" class="symbolic" link="no"]]
button instead. Click on the
[[!img lib/emblem-system.png alt="System" class="symbolic" link="no"]]
button and choose
<span class="guimenuitem">Restore Disk Image&hellip;</span>.
[[!img install/inc/screenshots/gnome_disks_system.png link="no" alt=""]]
<div class="bug">
XXX Should below (intermediary Tails instructions) be removed?
<p>If your version of <span class="application">GNOME Disks</span> is even
older and has neither a
[[!img lib/open-menu.png alt="Menu" class="symbolic" link="no"]] nor a
[[!img lib/emblem-system.png alt="System" class="symbolic" link="no"]]
button, you have to [[!toggle id="dd" text="install an intermediary Tails
using the command line"]].</p>
</div>
[[!toggleable id="dd" text="""
Install an intermediary Tails using the command line
----------------------------------------------------
1. Take note of the *device name* of the first USB stick as displayed in the
right pane. The device name should be something like `/dev/sdb`,
`/dev/sdc`, etc.
<div class="caution">
<p>If you are not sure about the device name, you should stop proceeding or
you risk overwriting any hard disk on the computer.</p>
</div>
1. Open a terminal.
1. Execute the following command, replacing `[tails.iso]` with the path to the
ISO image that you want to install and `[device]` with the device name
found in step 1.
dd if=[tails.iso] of=[device] bs=16M && sync
Here is an example of command to execute, yours is probably different:
dd if='/home/amnesia/tails-2.0.iso' of=/dev/sdc bs=16M && sync
<div class="tip">
<p>If you are not sure about the path to the ISO image or if you get a <span
class="guilabel">No such file or directory</span> error message, you can
first type <code>dd</code>, followed by a space, and then drag and drop the
icon of the ISO image from a file browser onto the terminal. Doing so should
insert the correct path to the ISO image in the terminal. Then complete the
command and execute it.</p>
</div>
1. If no error message is returned, Tails is being install on the USB stick.
The installation takes a few minutes.
You can now continue with the next step and [[Open these instructions on
another device|usb#intermediary]].
"""]]
1. In the <span class="guilabel">Restore Disk Image</span> dialog, click on
the file selector button and choose the ISO image that you downloaded
earlier.
1. Click on the <span class="button">Start Restoring&hellip;</span> button.
1. In the confirmation dialog click <span class="button">Restore</span>. The
installation takes a few minutes.
1. After the installation is finished, click on the
[[!img lib/media-eject.png alt="Eject" class="symbolic" link="no"]] button.
