In order to aid loading openSUSE installation and Live images on USB sticks we have a little GUI program called imagewriter. It's a bit dated so Fabian started a newer one with better UI suitable for touch screen that offers the available images on demand, store images offline for conferences and fairs etc: https://github.com/openSUSE/imagewriter2

It's written in C++ with Qt and still needs some work to be production ready:

  • package it as imagewriter2 and get into the Distro
  • add command line parameters
  • improve the UI, possibly matching the style of softwareo.o
  • better visualization of progress bars, add cancel buttons etc.
  • some nice UI to prime and manage the cache for preparing conferences
  • ..

Looking for hackers with the skills:
