This article will describe an USB-Creator installation procedure on Ubuntu Linux. USB-Creator allows you to create a bootable USB key from Ubuntu CD or ISO image. First, we need to install all pre-requisites in order to build USB-Creator package. Once we have successfully build USB-creator packages we use dpkg command to install all USB-Creator on the system.

Let's start by pre-requisites installation:
# apt-get update
# apt-get install bzr pbuilder debhelper dh-translations python3-distutils-extra pkg-kde-tools
Now download a current development code from "brz" revision control system:
# bzr branch lp:usb-creator usb-creator.trunk
Navigate to USB-Creator's source code directory:
# cd usb-creator.trunk/
In the next step we are going to build USB-Creator installation packages:
# debuild -uc -us
