After doing a first merge of this branch I noticed that the two state images in the left column were now overlapping. So I did one more commit on top of this that should solve all the issues at once. Please have a look at f08e6af or the result directly on https://tails.boum.org/master/install/linux/usb/.

Note that as I already did merge and pushed this branch online when I realized the problem of overlapping images, I did this one directly in master as well and not in a topic branch.

If you’re fine with this you can mark this ticket as resolved.
