After ?-days of searching the solution was found …

I’m curious what at last the reason for this issue is!

The maintainer is from Arch, so i asked in arch IRC → artefact> !notarch! burn the !heretic
They also don’t like me :slight_smile:

It would never have crossed my mind to use gnome-disk-utility to try and create a bootable thumbdrive.
Are you sure that this is actually supposed to work and be used for that purpose?

To put an .iso on a thumb drive you want to boot from, use command line tools like dd or cat or cp or …
or, like in your Mint installation, a tool with a GUI that does the same.

Ventoy is a good choice …

Yes, it works for that, also for .img that ventoy don’t handle

Thank you! Good to know and have yet another tool in the toolbox.

I remember dd taking ages to copy … but i have a working alternative: etcher

I would not care about the “speed” of the operation, as long as it produces the desired result.
Manjaro iso is just short of 3 GB - and I don’t care whether it takes 2 minutes or 10 …
Depends on how fast the device can write the data written to it to it’s internal flash memory
and with dd also on the parameters you give it.

cat or cp … work just as well - except for some cases where
gnome-disk-utility could, for whatever reason, produce bootable devices where the other methods could not
but, also apparently, sometimes does not produce the desired result

strange (to me), those differences …
