Startup Disk Creator, the default live USB creator comes with Ubuntu Desktop edition just fixed an important bug that was preventing it from running properly for years.
If you try to use the Startup Disk Creator, also known as usb-creator-gtk, you will probably fail. Most of the time, even when it’s used from a terminal, the application will crash without any errors, making it impossible to write Ubuntu images.
The problem has been fixed and a updated version now is available for Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 14.04 in the recommended updates repository.
To get started upgrading this app, first enable the Recommended Updates repository from <i>Software & Updates -> Updates</i> tab.
Then we can upgrade the tool via Synaptic Package Manager or Software Updater after checking for updates.
Finally, we can use Startup Disk Creator to create bootable Ubuntu USB, just like using Unetbootin or Universal USB Installer.
