sudo dd if=/home/you/Downloads/clr-linux-x.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync

where /dev/sdx is your unmounted usb. find it with lsblk. Unmount it wth sudo umount /dev/sdx.

Double check it’s the right one first with fdisk -l | grep Disk because if you get the wrong one you could accidentally wipe your hard drive.
