Unetbootin desktop icon problematic

Post by Bird » 4. Jun 2021, 14:16

Could someone try to install unetbootin? The symbol in the start bar has problems. It links to "/usr/bin/unetbootin_asroot". But in the folder /usr/bin, there is only unetbootin. As a workaround I use a starter with the command "gksudo unetbootin" in the directory "/usr/bin/". That executes the program.

Confirmed. It's a problem with the SlackBuilds from SBo. You can edit the /usr/share/applications/unetbootin.desktop file and change the Exec line to:

Code: Select all

Exec=gksu unetbootin
Normally I would suggest to contact the maintainer at SBo about it: https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2 ... unetbootin
but my impression is that the SlackBuild is abandoned. I may be wrong though.

I gave it a try and wrote an e-mail to the maintainer. Let's see what happens.

Download everything from here and build unetbootin. You need qt5 installed.
