How to install Rufus on Ubuntu Mate?

by user1918492   Last Updated January 14, 2018 02:02 AM

I have been to the website & while there is talk of it being compatible there is no actual Linux supported link for it, its all exe's. I am using Ubuntu Mate the latest version 64Bit edition.

If someone can provide a direct link or terminal code to make it happen because its not showing up under the software center even with 3rd party enabled.

Rufus app is available for Windows platform only.

But you can use other softwares like winusb, dd, unetbootin, ....

Here is short dd tutorial for making bootable drives :

Plug in the USB flash drive and determine the device it's mounted on with the command:

sudo fdisk -l 

This time around it was /dev/sdc1 for me, so I'll use that as my example.

Unmount the device

umount /dev/sdc1 

The next step is to copy the iso. Copy to the device not partition (i.e copy to sdc not sdc1) as shown below:

sudo dd if=filename.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M

Perform final steps :

sudo eject /dev/sdc

That's all . :)
