Requisites: A Mac or a Hackintosh. A class 10+ micro sdcard (class 6 should work but danuntu will be extremely slow, especially on heavy desktops like kde or xfce), or a USB drive. The size of the sdcard/USB drive must be at least 4 GB (8 for danuntu to work properly). WARNING: DURING THE INSTALLATION PROCEDURE YOU WILL HAVE TO CREATE A NEW PARTITION TABLE ON THE SDCARD/USB DRIVE, AND BY DOING SO YOU WILL PERMANENTLY DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE SDCARD/USB DRIVE! THE DELETED DATA WON’T GO IN THE TRASH, IT WILL BE PERMANENTLY DELETED! I WARNED YOU! 1. Make sure you have enought space to download danuntu (the download size can be seen above the download mirror icon) and to extract it (below the table of the extracted sizes). If you don’t have enough space you can try to download danuntu on a secondary hard drive or on a usb drive and extract it on the local hard drive (or vice versa). Extracted images sizes table: 800MB danuntu-base-picuntukern.img 2.6 GB danuntu-gnome-picuntukern.img 3.5GB danuntu-kde-picuntukern.img 1.5GB danuntu-lxde-picuntukern.img 2.5GB danuntu-unity-picuntukern.img 3.5GB danuntu-xfce-picuntukern.img 2. Download the danuntu flavour you prefer (picuntu image version). 3. Extract the rar file with the image. 4. Execute the following commands in command line using a user with administrator rights: sudo -s #here type user password if prompted df -h Remember the connected devices, then connect only your USB drive/sdcard, do not connect anything else, and type again df -h A new device should appear in the list. Remember the new device’s mount point (right column) and device name without the partition name s1 (left column) and type diskutil unmount devicemountpoint 5. Now let’s write danuntu to the USB drive/sd card. As I wrote before,  WITH THIS ACTION THE CONTENTS OF THE SDCARD/USB DRIVE WILL BE PERMANENTLY DELETED! THE DELETED DATA WON’T GO IN THE TRASH, IT WILL BE PERMANENTLY DELETED! In the terminal, type the following command: dd if=/where/you/have/put/it/danuntu-flavour-picuntukern.img of=devicename If the above command reports this error: dd: devicename: Permission denied then that is because the partition table of the SD card/USB drive is being protected against being overwritten by MacOS. Erase the USB drive/SD card's partition table using this command: diskutil partitionDisk devicename 1 MBR "Free Space" "%noformat%" 100% That command will also set the permissions on the device to allow writing. Now try the dd command again. Note that dd will not feedback any information until there is an error or it is finished; information will be shown and the disk will re-mount when complete. However if you wish to view the progress you can use 'ctrl-T'; this generates SIGINFO, the status argument of your tty, and will display information on the process. After the dd command finishes, eject the card: sudo diskutil eject /dev/rdisk3 (or: open Disk Utility and eject the SD card) 6. Physically eject your sdcard/USB drive from your Mac. 7. That’s it!
