Creating a bootable USB with kindd. [more]


  1. Provide a modern/simple/safe UI for dd command.
  2. Create bootable USB withouth worrying!



sudo xbps-install -S kindd


Release version:

  • kindd

Git version:

  • kindd-git

Build From Source

First Install these dependencies first:


build dependencies:

  • cmake
  • pkg-config
  • qt5-devel
  • qt5-svg-devel
  • qt5-declarative-devel
  • qt5-quickcontrols2-devel

runtime dependencies:

  • qt5-svg
  • qt5-quickcontrols
  • qt5-quickcontrols2
  • qt5-graphicaleffects

Then clone and build the project:

git clone
cd kindd; mkdir build; cd build
cmake ..; make

And finally, run it:

cd ..; build/kindd


kindd uses pkexec internally. For most Desktop environments, there is a pkexec agent already installed. Like these:

  • xfce-polkit
  • polkit-gnome
  • pantheon-agent-polki
  • mate-polkit
  • polkit-kde-agent

But users of windows managers(like i3, dwm, awesome, ...) should install an agent. After installing a polkit-agent, paste these lines into your wm's config file.(For instance i3 keeps it's configs here: i3/config):

Arch users

exec /usr/lib/polkit-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 &

Void users

exec --no-startup-id /usr/libexec/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 &

Hint: I don't have awesome or other windows managers. So you should change above lines according to your agent and your wm.
