Unetbootin not working on Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit

Asked by arakelov on 2013-07-23

I'm experiencing exactly the same as in bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/unetbootin/+bug/1086748 , but with Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit:

· Download latest UNetbootin for Ubuntu (currently unetbootin-linux-585).

$ chmod +x unetbootin-linux-585
$ ./unetbootin-linux-585

Nothing happens; no console messages, no logs, no window opens.

The file works perfectly on Ubuntu 12.04 32-bits (tested).

If this is an issue Is there any way to get the Unetbootin for 64-bit architecture so I can avoid installing 277 MB of packages for 32-bit compatibility?

Thanks and regards.

The PPA, containing 64-bit builds for Ubuntu, is at http://launchpad.net/~gezakovacs/+archive/ppa

For raring there's just one package named "unetbootin". This is both for 32 and 64-bit?

There's seperate versions for 32 and 64-bit in that PPA (go to "view package details" if you want to see the actual deb files, ie https://launchpad.net/~gezakovacs/+archive/ppa/+packages ), but at any rate yes, adding the PPA and installing the unetbootin package will get you the 64-bit version.
