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.

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
