Running Unetbootin

I'm trying to use Unetbootin to create a linux mint live usb. I've done this in the past successfully with porteus but now I'm running into issues.

Mate changing task bar position

After changing the task bar position from top to the left side of your screen it becomes inactive and none of the menu items work. A reset will cause it to work again. This happens anytime you change the task bar position.

Unable to run executable

I'm trying to run unetbootin 494 but when I click it open nothing happens. I have ran this program from porteus before with no problems. I haven't made any changes to my install since then. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
S.O.S.

Update *

I downloaded the 32compat lib directly from USM. This one came with mesa and all of the proper files. Looks like steam is working fine now.

My new go to Linux OS

When the hard drive on my laptop broke. I was looking for an OS I could run off one of my many spare thumb drives. I tried dozens of different linux builds.

Play on Linux and Wine

The old thread for play on linux and wine has broken links and looks like it hasn't been updated in a while. I would love to play some of my windows only games on Porteus.

Thanks

In the console type: su
Then type in the password (toor) and you are now root. Installation operation should be done as root. Hope that helps.

That seems to have found it but why can't the executable in the boot folder seem to find it. Can you post the full command line you used to make it work.

Thanks
