Brief This tutorial shows the steps for actually installing Ubuntu Linux on an external US drive with the bootloader installed on the USB. It is NOT live USB set up. This USB will work as portable operating system and can be used on any computer system.
Let me recall a few things.
A live USB is used for testing the distribution. It is also used for installing Linux on computer hard disk. Normally any changes you made to your live distribution is lost and this limits the usage of the live USB.
Several of It8217s FOSS readers requested a tutorial on installing Linux on a USB. Not the regular live USB with persistence but the actual Ubuntu installed on a USB disk.
This means having a portable Ubuntu Linux on a USB that you can plug it in to any computer use it save your work on the USB like it was an actual hard disk.
