Create Ubuntu Bootable USB / Live USB from Command Line

If you are trying to install a new Ubuntu version or just want to see how a new version of Ubuntu looks like, then the best way to do so is to create and use a Live USB aka Ubuntu bootable USB.

Not only can we install or test Ubuntu, but we can also use it as a personal operating system that can be used on any laptop or desktop without having to make any major changes to the systems. You will need the following to create a Ubuntu Bootable USB from the command line or CLI.

  • USB drive/Pendrive with at least 4 GB capacity
  • Ubuntu ISO file (get it from HERE Get Ubuntu | Download | Ubuntu)
  • Linux system (here we are using Ubuntu only but this tutorial will work for all Linux systems)

Once you have all these then, we can proceed to create a Ubuntu Bootable USB.
