I have version 9 and want to load 10.  Unibootin won't open. I do not know what application opens it.  I am a newbie to Linux. Please help! Thanks! :'(

I'm assuming you downloaded it, and when you click it it asks what you want to open it with ?

Try this...

Right-click the Unetbootin executable and select "Properties" .. select the "Permissions" tab .. put a tick in the box labelled "Allow executing file as a program" .. click the "Close" button.

Now try double-clicking the Unetbooting executable again .. did it start ?

BTW, welcome to the forum :)



Just out of interest though, can I ask why you're using Unetbootin when Peppermint 9 has a USB Image Writer pre-installed out of the box ?
