The methods for installing or testing operating systems and from where to do so change over time. At first they were used FloppyLater on, it moved to CD / DVD, with Knoppix being the first to launch a Live CD, and today many of us use a pendrive, especially Linux users. The only bad thing about this option is that every time we want to test or install an operating system we have to "flash" the unit, unless tools such as windy that allow us to put several ISOs in the same USB.
A little over a year ago we talked to you about how to use Ventoy on Linux. Although a lot of software has a user interface, a lot of other software works from the terminal, which can be put back because the work is greater and because typing something incorrectly can make everything go wrong or simply not work. That is something that has changed a while ago, since Ventoy now available with GUI… From the browser.
As we read in this information pageNow we can use a graphical interface modeled on Windows in Linux, but we will do it from the browser. What does not change is the way to install the software, something that we explain in this article (in some distros it is in the official repositories). Once Ventoy is installed on our computer, the information page says that you have to write sudo sh VentoyWeb.sh, but that gives me an error and I have to write sudo ventoyweb to see what happens in the terminal.
Although the text is in English, what to do next is easy to guess: we open the link it gives us, which in the case above is http://127.0.0.1:24680. Everything will be done in our team; the browser is only used for the graphical interface.
Once here, the interface is the header capture, the first thing that can be done is to put it in Spanish. Then you have to do click "Install" and accept the double message that warns us that everything is going to be erased. Installation on a very limited computer like mine does not last 10s. To exit, in the terminal we press Ctrl + C to interrupt the process.
Oh, and in case you did not know, to install the ISO just drag them to the USB drive.
Many bugs fixed
Doing what Ventoy does is not easy. Allows us put multiple ISOs and boot from them, including Windows, so it's understandable that there are bugs. Months ago, it was like this with this tool, but they have solved most of them, so, added to the fact that there is a user interface, we no longer have an excuse not to use it in Linux. Ubuntu, Manjaro, Fedora, Windows ... Everything on a USB. Well, not?
