Neither Mate or Xfce will install

Hi

First time this has ever happened with Point Linux. Tried to install both 64bit versions and whilst the live system works neither will install. Double click the install icon and nothing happens.

Advise please

Please give us some more information about your problems and your experience. Also did you try the menu under system instead of the desktop icon? Not sure what to tell you. Checking hashes? Burning program that extracted the OS? Really need to know more about your problems other than it won't install.

pointlinux installer is, as a matter of fact, gui for dd command. you can try to prepare usb in two steps. first check the destination. you can use either blkid or fdisk
Code: Select all
sudo blkid -o list

next use either dd or cat commands
Code: Select all
sudo dd if=<path to your iso with its name> of=<destination - device, not partition f. eg /dev/sdb>; sync

(remember to add sync command) should work.

you can also try (if you are using windows) nice portable apps called Rufus.

I have no experience with core version, but the above procedure (with dd, cat for Linux and Rufus for windows) always works with full version.

cheers,
