Bug Description

1. Can't remove current source disc image from list. There is no option to remove images from the list.
2. Can add Other source disc image, but when any disk image is selected, the Make Startup Disk button is immediately greyed out.
3. Closing the app doesn't save the last added source disk image.
4. Can't install source disc image on a blank USB stick - always throws an Installation failed error with no other information.

Why would you want to do that? BTW the source tree is pre-populated
with images found in your XDG Downloads dir (usually ~/Downloads), cd
in the CDROM, and the live-session itself if you are running live cd
session.

This has been fixed in bzr branch.

No, because it is stateless application. What is your workflow that
you need this?

It does tell you to check usb-creator.log with it's location?! it's
most lickely ~/.usb-creator.log, ~/.usbcreator.log or
~/.cache/usb-creator.log depedening which version you are using.

And please file one bug per issue and be more descriptive e.g. I did
this... This happened... I wanted it to do this.... Because.....

I'm new to this, but i ran into the issue of getting a failed error message when trying to create a usb start up. However i do not know or understand what was meant by "usb-creator.log with it's location" or "~/.cache/usb-creator.log" I just want to be able to take what i have set up on my laptop and put it on my desktop. A mirrored image. The desktop has windows with issues! "Computers are like air conditioners, when you open Windows they stop working! -John Lee-"
