I have been hearing lots of rave reviews of Elementary OS Freya. Users admired the beauty and elegance of Elementary OS Freya and some people went on saying that Luna is the Mac for Linux. Well, too far fetched a comparison. I mean you can make Ubuntu look like Mac OS. But a comparison with Mac is inevitable when it comes to comparing looks of an OS.
Anyways, to try Elementary OS Freya, I decided to try the OS on a live USB. In this short tutorial, I am going to show you how to create a live USB of Elementary OS Ferya in Ubuntu.
Create a live USB of Elementary OS Freya in Ubuntu:
Download Elementary OS Freya disk image on your system.
Insert a USB drive or a DVD.
Now, to create a live USB or disk, you don’t need to install a new program. Ubuntu comes with the built in Startup Disk Creator and that itself is sufficient to create a live disk or USB. Go to Unity Dash and look for Startup Disk Creator:
When you start it, it intelligently detects the presence of an “disk image” file on your system. And if there is only one, it will automatically add it to create a live disk from it. It also recognizes the inserted USB or disk. If not, just browse it to the location of the disk image in CD/Drive Image section. Once you did this, just click on Make Startup Disk:
And that would be all. It will take some time (around 5-7 mins) to create the live USB. You’ll see the following message when the process ends successfully:
I’ll be writing more on my experience with Elementary OS Freya in coming days. Stay tuned :)
