Unetbootin available for free on windows, mac, and of course linux operating system, on lubuntu unetbootin available on ppa (personal package archives) repository, therefore you need to add the ppa repo first if you want to install it.

Okay, first open up your terminal/console (press CTRL + ALT + T) and then add the ppa repo for unetbootin like this:
