Ignore my comment below. A different USB and format and it is working well. Thanks for the effort that goes into this.

I'm getting the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/bin/multibootusb", line 174, in module

if config.debug is True:

NameError: name 'config' is not defined

Any ideas?

Edit: Formatting

@Tav, You can install all required packages (dependencies) from anaconda package manager and it should fix the issue you are facing.

@sundar_ima You were right, although the solution involved uninstalling anaconda as a package and re-installing it after I installed multibootusb. I am sure there is a more elegant solution, but I don't know what it is. I'd be interested to hear it. Thanks for your observation.

Those who are getting this error "QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'" and failing to start window, please have a look at cat /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/ for path to multibootusb path. Path to which multibootusb and path of multibootusb in the polkit file should be same. Please correct path to multibootusb in /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/ and it should work properly.
