Consider using GNOME Disks for the manual installation using Linux
Once we ship hybrid ISOs again (#8510 (closed)), we’ll have only one remaining
command line left (
dd) in the manual installation using Linux. I’ve
just noticed that GNOME Disks can do this job, at least on current
Debian sid. Two paths seem to be available:
- open GNOME Disks -> click on a USB drive -> open the menu that’s about acting on the entire drive -> Restore Disk Image
- open Files -> right-click on ISO -> Open with -> Disk Image Writer -> select target device
Shall we switch to using that instead of
- do current versions of GNU/Linux distributions have a recent enough GNOME Disks that has this feature?
- does this feature actually work well?
- which one of the two paths would be best?
