SUSE Studio Image Writer
SUSE Studio ImageWriter is an official tool designed to create Live USBs of SUSE and openSUSE. It is part of the SUSE KIWI Image creation system and was designed to ease the creation of LiveUSB system with SUSE Studio. It can however be used with standard openSUSE LiveCD ISO files.
It also has the capability to be used in "kiosks" that may have external harddrives. To run in kiosk mode, which both ignores large hard drives and marks unknown USB sticks as "SUSE Studio", run imagewriter with the -k option.
in order to start the imagewriter with sudo, do the following: % xhost +SI:localuser:root
to allow root access to the current screen and then start the program with: % sudo DISPLAY=:0 imagewriter
