Etcher seems to be a good all-rounder.
Meaning Etcher will work on Linux, Windows and macOS.


On ArcoLinux we have mintstick installed – in the menu accessories/usb image writer

Check the Arch Wiki on this matter.

We have been using mintstick from Linux Mint since the start of the project 6 years ago.

Reliable and fast.

It is part of the ArcoLinux isos.

use the terminal and dd

The dd command will almost always result in a working Live USB.  You need to change the paths to the correct paths for your system.

The USB drive is specified as /dev/sdX. The most common path of a USB drive is /dev/sdb BUT yours might be different depending on your system.

To view a list of all drives currently attached to your system run this command:

sudo fdisk -l

To write ArcoLinux to your USB run the following command:

sudo dd bs=4M if=/path/to/arcolinux...iso of=/dev/sdX status=progress && sync
