After installing and starting it, I get this error:

"Could not find resource 'data/tools/gdisk/gdisk.exe'. Running multibootusb version 9.2.0 from installed system... Starting multibootusb GUI... QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root' qt.qpa.screen: QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display Could not connect to any X display. "

Thank You!

Sadly I have to disown this package as I don't have the time to keep updating it anymore. Please, forgive me if I have been absent so often, but my work consumes more and more of my time. Thanks and Best of luck to the next maintainer.

I get an error:

$ multibootusb
Using python version  3.6.6 (default, Jun 27 2018, 13:11:40) 
[GCC 8.1.1 20180531] on platform Linux-4.17.3-1-ARCH-x86_64-with-arch
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/multibootusb", line 187, in <module>
    if config.debug is True:
NameError: name 'config' is not defined

Apparently it's a known issue.

The only way I found to make multibootusb work at the moment on arch is to use the devel branch of the repo:

$ git clone
$ cd multibootusb
$ git branch devel
$ git checkout devel
$ sudo python3 multibootusb

That's the way I run it. When I try to install syslinux onto a drive (or add an ISO), I get this same error:

With the git version I don't get any errors and it works just fine.

@andrejr - This version does work on Arch, but it requires a little finangling. You just have to run it via terminal with

sudo multibootusb

Since this version actually doesn't work on Arch, I've made a git version here:

The problem that makes it not work was fixed in this PR, which made it into master, but is yet to be included in an official release:

The git version obviously includes this PR and works flawlessly.

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