I think it works, Mint 18 xfce. Have installed clonezilla from the mint package manager, called it [sudo clonezilla] and it opened.

How to create the disk image ISO in Linux Mint?

Create disk images it is often necessary to install on PC old games that were distributed on disks, on modern computers, which frequently do not have DVD drive. Just remember that protect games from illegal distribution - DRM, often incompatible with virtual drives

ISO files are disk images. A complete copy of a CD or DVD disc in one file. This file can be "mounted" and accessed as a virtual CD or DVD available as a physical disc.

Let's learn how to create disk images.

In Linux you can create an ISO image using the terminal or the burning software included in your distribution. For example, in Linux Mint ISO image can be created using utility, Brasero. To do this, open Brasero, select Disk copy and select the Disc to write to. The image will be created. In other distributions include other programs, but the essence remains the same - copy a physical disk to the image.

Clicking on the Properties button, you can choose where to save the image and can also choose the format for the generated image.

Also, you can create an image with the command in the terminal:

sudo dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/username/image.iso

Replace /dev/cdrom with the path to your optical drive, e.g. /dev/dvd and /home/username/cd.iso — the path to the future ISO image.

The resulting disk can be mounted by the mount command, right there in the terminal or with the graphical tool to choose according to your taste.

    Thought the article was going to explain how to create an image of the installed Linux Mint system so it could be backed up on a USB stick of external HD or allow one to make a "live DVD" of the current system so it could be re-installed in the future.

    I should have added that can't get Clonezilla to work nor get Systemback to install (using Linux Mint 17.3 with MATE 64bit). After spending 2 days searching for a good solution, have not found any so far. Also can't get the PPA recommended for Systemback to install. Brasero does not create an image of an installed system.
