Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

now remove the last 2 lines that read:-

SAVE the file, and exit gedit.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/MultiSystem-installer
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/MultiSystem-installer
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://liveusb.info/multisystem/install-depot-multisystem.sh.tar.bz2
then
Code: [Select]
tar -xjvf install-depot-multisystem.sh.tar.bz2

Done it and I saw a warning in there somewhere (in red)
(click to show/hide)

Is it anything to worry about?

I don't think so, as long as it works :)

It's running...
Do I need to get the Distro.ISO's myself?
Are they supposed to be in this screen? (screenshot)

Download the ISO images yourself .. then IIRC you can just drag them into the bottom window to add them.

OK, that's confused me .. what's in foreign ?

Download Linux ISO images (from the distro homepage) such as Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, SUSE, etc.

Then just drag the SO into the bottom window .. or point MultiSystem at the ISO('s) .. they should then be added to the USB stick and its boot menu's
