You have Startup Disk Creator as in Ubuntu you can install it from the AppCenter or via the command line: sudo apt install usb-creator-gtk

Use AppCentre to install the "Disks" application, it will do the job and is useful for other things too. Start it, carefully select the USB drive from the list on the left, then use the menu top right to select "Restore Disk Image" and choose your iso file. It works fine on Ubuntu MATE, but I haven't tried it on ElementaryOS.

I found a temporarily solution until a fix is released, First connect the usb dongle and wait till it get detected in Disks. Then move on to the Settings->Network navigate to the Ethernet under the devices in the left panel (as shown in the above screen-shot), then press Edit Connections then Add select mobile broadband from the hardware menu. Then go ...

Right after install, just remove it when the pc goes off during reboot. In general you hit the eject button next to the usb sticks name in files. See screenshot

Assuming that /dev/sdb is your USB stick, just delete the /dev/sdb2 partition then create a single partition from the resulting single unallocated chunk then format it to FAT32 or any format you want.

Check TLP Settings: All TLP settings are stored in the config file /etc/default/tlp USB USB_AUTOSUSPEND=1 Set autosuspend mode for all USB devices upon system start or a change of power source. Input devices like mice and keyboards are exluded by default (see USB_DRIVER_BLACKLIST below). Possible values: 1 – enable 0 – disable Note: TLP activates USB ...

When you click to format it to ext2 also check the box: "format this partition" if not already and in the drop-down box below select the option which just says / (you should see something like /,/home,/root,/boot etc)

To expand on Schyken's answer you can find all of the wingpanel indicators made by the elementary team on the Github here: https://github.com/elementary?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=wingpanel&type=&language=. Perhaps you can suggest an indicator in an issue or alternatively just use GNOME which has a Removable Drive Menu shell extension.

Before anything, before any input or sudo code in Terminal, I believe it is worth checking in the Apps window, start typing Software and it will show something like Software & Updates. For me, in the 5th tab, it shows Additional Drivers and from there I could select an unknown device to use dkms source for the r8812au network driver. Hope this helps ...

Sav, I too am a fellow Macintosh / elementary OS (Juno) user. Other than using a Patriot Memory USB drive (which mounts consistently automatically) I may have one other suggestion for you. GNOME Disks This application can be installed through AppCenter. It has the "look and feel" of Apple's Disk Utility program. The only thing you will need to wrap ...

I did more research and discovered that the Adafruit boards like the Trinket, Pro Trinket, Gemma, etc. do not show up in the serial port menu when connected via USB. You select the proper board, set the Programmer option to "USBtinyISP" then press the reset button on the board to enter bootloader mode and upload the sketch. The older tutorials Adafruit and ...

In modern Linux kernels, you can use udev to detect removable disks. You can read about udev at: Ubuntu Manpages I'm not a Python expert, but i have find a module about using udev, so you can try with it: Pure Python udev bindings

I was able to fix the problem by following the tutorial: https://gist.github.com/2E0PGS/f63544f8abe69acc5caaa54f56efe52f

Elementary Loki and Ubuntu 16.04 (which Loki is based on) both operate using Linux kernel 4.4. Though this kernel has incremental updates. Whether these updates would remove hardware support I can't say. But as a test you could force your system to boot using an older kernel. See if the dongle works. If not, try another. If you've exhausted all kernels and ...

This is a workaround, not a solution install Dropbox on both your eOS computer and on the iOS device. on the iOS device, also install the Files app from Apple (standard in recent versions of iOS) Set Dropbox as one of the destinations in iOS Files Create a folder in Dropbox, something like "New Pictures" Now, in the iOS Photos app, you should be able to ...

You could install a file manager that offers this feature, such as Nautilus. There is a bug report for adding this feature to Pantheon-Files. See also: Will the developers add the option to automount external media & devices?

Disabling USB autosuspend completely – as described in the previous answer – will increase power consumption considerably. I finer approach would be to isolate the offending USB device by blacklisting the devices one by one: USB_BLACKLIST="1111:2222" and apply the new setting by: sudo tlp usb Refer to TLP Troubleshooting for background on the subject.

This sounds like it is a problem with the compatibility of the trackpad. Have you tried plugging in a mouse, and see if that works? Also, actually installing the system (as opposed to running it from a USB pen) will increase your chance at a fully working system since a bunch of software is installed from the web too (on top of the core stuff on the pen). ...

This always works for me: download & create liveimage of supergrub iso. boot super grub. locate bootable OS on the pc. ( if more than one OS on the PC) boot you preferred OS. Login & go terminal as root. usually most people prefer grub on "/dev/sda" but that's no always the case. So select the drive you prefer to install grub on. run "grub-install /...

Try this: Boot into the live usb and open terminal Open terminal and write this: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair On the window, click on 'Recommended repair' and follow the instructions That should work. If not, try to reinstall elementary OS by the default ...

Your laptop has a 6th gen intel processor, kaby lake architecture. the current elementary OS freya 0.3.2 has kernel 3.x i don't know the specific one out of my head.(feel free to add comment) this processor has no drivers in this linux kernel version. Loki uses linux kernel 4.4 or 4.0.4 something like that. as far as i can find support in 4.0.4 and 4.4 is ...

Try re-downloading the .iso through magnet link (or directly) cross-reference the sha256. if everything checks out, format your usb as fat32 with default allocation (or I usually prefer 32kb) Open rufus and select your drive, and iso as normal and make sure to ONLY do those things, don't change any other settings. If this doesn't work, redownload rufus ...

I had similar problems: When getting to the boot launcher where you choose what to boot, you can press 'e' to edit the actual boot command. Add 'nomodeset' after 'quiet splash' and prior to the '--' near the end of the line.
