A little less than a month ago we wrote about this software to create bootable USBs to recognize that they had fixed many bugs in the latest versions. No less important was that you could enter a web interface with which we could create the unit and update the software, but since yesterday we will no longer depend on the browser, since windy 1.0.52 I arrive with a graphical interface for Linux and we will be able to carry out all the procedures as has always been done in the Windows version.
As we read in the notes of this novelty, interface for Linux it is complete in GTK3 and QT5, while in GTK2 support for arm64 and mips64el would be missing. But not everything is as simple as in Windows, or at least not in all distributions, since its developers say that you have to execute the corresponding command (such as ./VentoyGUI.x86_64) in some distributions. Rather, they tell us that some of them can be double-clicked on the corresponding file, including Debian and Ubuntu.
Ventoy 1.0.52 already shows us an independent browser window in Linux
Among the rest of the news, they are not very important, and they are these:
- Native GUI installer for Linux (x86_64 / i386 / aarch64 / mips64) (GTK / QT).
- Added support for the Emergency Starter Kit.
- Continue booting when ISO file size is invalid.
- Fixed a bug when starting puppy-4.3.1.
- Languages.json update.
As has not changed is the installation method. Although in some distributions it can be done directly from the official repositories, in many others you have to follow the tutorial we wrote about Ventoy last summer.
Ventoy 1.0.52 is the latest version of a software that improves a lot over time. Surely many are thinking that other options, such as Etcher, are better, but there is nothing more comfortable than dragging an ISO to a pendrive to create a bootable USB, and that is exactly what Ventoy does better every day.
