@debian:~$ sudo ./balenaEtcher-1.5.122-x64.AppImage
[sudo] password for cora:
sudo: ./balenaEtcher-1.5.122-x64.AppImage: command not found
open the terminal where the file is located and don't use sudo - try
Code:
./balenaEtcher-1.5.122-x64.AppImage

Etcher is in the /opt directory.

/opt$ ./balenaEtcher-1.5.122-x64.AppImage

I did the same and created the directory as you have and I'm still getting the same thing.

It's been a long time since using the dd command to make a usb bootable. Anyway, I know that works.
I think I'll have to use the dd command since Etcher won't launch for me.

I'll use the dd cmd to make my usb bootable for the new Linux Mint.
IF I am not able to get Voyager's wifi working I'll download Mint and install that.

Thank you all for your help.

My problem is simply, actually, I have laughed really hard. It doesn't run because I downloaded the wrong one, It must be ...x64.AppImage instead of ...i32.AppImage :V
