I'm going to open a new ticket for Epiphany. Concerning the persistence tool, the latest build contains the updated script so I expect the bug to be fixed…

You're right about Epiphany, but this is not linked to persistence. I don't know why, it expects to have a “Downloads” directory but isn't able to create it… I think I just have to craete this directory on CD images, I just need the translation for each language (Russian = Скачивание). Or maybe I can find its name somewhere in Epiphany's settings.

Concerning crash in the expert mode, please try this new Python script:


You just need to download it and run it from within DDL if you want it to find translation files.

My examination shows that persistence work at USB device solely.
Even in this case Epiphany web browser cannot find directory /hone/user/Desktop/Скачивание

I have the same error on the Romanian CD in the case of a single detected disk. I think the method “__str__” of class “Disk” is responsible of this crash. Should not be so difficult to fix, but expect to have a Python to download to test the fix!
