multibootusb-git can be a nice alternative to unetbootin

Just FYI, the Qt5 fork of Unetbootin has finally been merged into the Git repository. So at some point you'll have to update your dependencies.

For those of you who want to avoid Qt4, I made this package:

It's based on a fork by Chemrat:

The last commit on that fork is from 2017, but unfortunately the Unetbootin guys still haven't merged it:

If you get something like this:

X Error: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied) 10
  Extension:    130 (MIT-SHM)
  Minor opcode: 1 (X_ShmAttach)
  Resource id:  0x147
X Error: BadShmSeg (invalid shared segment parameter) 128
  Extension:    130 (MIT-SHM)
  Minor opcode: 5 (X_ShmCreatePixmap)
  Resource id:  0x600000c
X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9
  Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea)
  Resource id:  0x600000d
X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9
  Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea)
  Resource id:  0x600000d

Then try this:

Any of these work for me:

sudo QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 unetbootin.elf
sudo QT_GRAPHICSSYSTEM=native unetbootin.elf
su -c 'QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 unetbootin.elf'
su -c 'QT_GRAPHICSSYSTEM=native unetbootin.elf'

+1 for fixing the setconf dependency

note: if unetbootin starts with a blank window, the solution is directly run /usr/bin/unetbootin.elf :)

Error during build:

/usr/bin/pacman: unrecognized option '--color never'

Resolved by commenting out the 'Color' line in /etc/pacman.conf

I also had the same experience as the previous commenter (setconf is not installed as a dependency, even though it is listed)

spuggy commented on 2018-06-04 06:28 (UTC)

setconf is listed as a dependency on the AUR page, but is a "makedepends" in the PKGBUILD file.

Which doesn't seem to cause it to get installed if not there, and building then throws "line 28: setconf: command not found" at build time
