Updated the USB key creation: a mention about umounting the USB drive before writing the ISO to it.
In regards to the WiKi, I would recommend gnome-disk-utility even to pure KDE DE’s. The reason being that gnome-disk-utility is not DE dependent and uses mostly code that is in a base install. Even on a pure KDE Desktop Envirnment it only pulls in 11.5 MB total install size and does not pull in any KDE dependencies.
On a fresh KDE install with no GTK dependent apps installed yet, I get the following:
[don@EnOS-KDE ~]$ sudo pacman -S gnome-disk-utility [sudo] password for don: resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages...

I have used gnome-disk-utility for years and as you know in the last two years I have burned a lot of EnOS ISOs. If I am updating a devel ISO, I just plug the Thumb drive in, bring up gnome-disk-utility and re-burn it. If something such as un-mounting is required Disk Utility just takes care of it.
I have been using Ventoy for a while now and it may be worth mentioning.
With this you don’t have to flash your drive every time, just drag and drop your iso onto the drive,
Yea I have 3 distros on a USB using Ventoy. works quit well.
