Utility for writing raw disk images & hybrid isos to USB keys
In order to compile, run
** HAL **
% qmake DEFINES=USEHAL imagewriter.pro
** udisks1 **
% qmake DEFINES=USEUDISKS imagewriter.pro
** udisks2 **
% qmake DEFINES=USEUDISKS2 imagewriter.pro
Failing to specify the define will likely not work out.
Linux kiosk mode
The imagewriter also has the capability to be used in "kiosks" that may have external harddrives. To run in kiosk mode, which both ignores large hard drives and marks unknown USB sticks as "SUSE Studio", run imagewriter with the -k option.
in order to start the imagewriter with sudo, do the following:
% xhost +SI:localuser:root
to allow root access to the current screen and then start the program with:
% sudo DISPLAY=:0 imagewriter
