Open the software center and install "unetbootin", then start it once it's installed (don't worry if it complains about extlinux). You should see something like in the attached screenshot.
flatiron: Hey, how do you create the ISO image burn when using Ubuntu to do it? I don't understand how to use the links.
- First select "Diskimage"
- Then click the "..." button and navigate to & select the Mint ISO you downloaded
- Then select the USB drive (it should only show only the USB drives connected to the system; if not then make sure that "Type: USB Drive" is set. It'll be something like /dev/sdb1 or /dev/sdc1 depending on the number of disks in your system)
- Then click OK
Don't worry about any of the other options for now. When it's done you'll have a bootable USB drive with Mint on it :)
running "sha256sum linuxmint-18.2-cinnamon-64bit.iso" gives me:
flatiron: When I try to download this file sha256sum.txt.gpg from this page https://linuxmint.com/verify.php
If what you downloaded matches this then it's fine.
