Last Linux Mint Live for USB Pendrive (ISO Hybrid)?


Hello,

I have downloaded the following iso hybrid, but it is actually very old and it does not work for i915 intel.

Code:
wget "http://mirrors.evowise.com/linuxmint/stable/12/linuxmint-12-kde-dvd-32bit.iso"
Would you know a possible *working* ISO hybrid of last Linux Mint release? All link welcome.

thank you!!!!

As far as I know everything 12> is a hybrid image. You should be able to use the dd command to write to the USB drive.

dd if=/path/to/linuxmint.iso of=/dev/sdx oflag=direct bs=1048576

How did you install the ISO to the thumbdrive? And did you check the checksum? wgetting off any Mint mirror should work.

Also, note Mint 12 is EOL now (as of April '17) and a bit risky to use. 17.x/18.x are the only supported releases now.

Most distro's stopped saying they were hybrid iso a long time ago. Many really still are or have added support.

The latest Mints all should easily write to a usb by some means like dd or other writer. As noted dd and your system needs to be supported.

works it only with KDE, since I tried with xfce and it did not work on the last.

What specific error are you getting on the screen? You can press Esc as soon as the Mint splash screen comes up (or pass splash=silent as a boot up option) to see the console on startup.

Also, why must it be Mint 12?

"How to make the USB stick?
Using mintStick

mintStick is installed by default in Linux Mint.

Launch "USB Image Writer" from the menu, select your ISO image and your USB device and press "Write to device".
Using the Terminal

It is really simple. Go to a Terminal and type:

sudo dd if=~/Desktop/linuxmint.iso of=/dev/sdx oflag=direct bs=1048576

Where '~/Desktop/linuxmint.iso' is the name and location of your downloaded image (located at the desktop in this example) and '/dev/sdx' is the target USB drive. If your system doesn't support 'oflag=direct', you can just leave it out as it is simply intended to speed up the process a bit.

If you don't know about the target USB drive path, run this command and figure out your destination drive.
sudo fdisk -l

Warning: Make sure to set the correct device path, as this process will delete all data that was on the specified device previously!

Remember, don't include an integer for the USB drive, e.g. '/dev/sdx1', as it would refer to the existing partition on that drive and not the drive itself.

When the USB has been properly created by 'dd', there should be an output similar to this:
sudo dd if=~/Desktop/linuxmint.iso of=/dev/sdb oflag=direct bs=1048576
706+1 records in
706+1 records out
740601856 bytes (741 MB) copied, 91.7024 s, 8.1 MB/s"

I'd have to wonder about that last statement as the size of the xfce would be different. Also your sdx is better than sdb example.
