I am using lubuntu 12.04 on my PC. I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop. How do I create live-usb on Lubuntu so that I can install Ubuntu OS to my Laptop.

Edit: There's no startup disc creator in Lubuntu Software Center

Note that the Lubuntu Software Center is a "work in progress". LSC for version 12.10 has the startup disc creator. –  user25656 Dec 28 '12 at 17:59

You can use the UNetbootin software.

In their homepage you will find an Installation Guide, and a Live-USB Creator Guide

To install it from terminal enter the next command:

sudo apt-get install unetbootin
