ISO mount point

Post by nyakahime »

Hello, can you tell me where is the mount point for the ISO files? I`ve mounted Morrowind ISO-file and want to install it via PlayOnLinux application, but it wants the path to the mount point. And I don` know it :( It`s not in the /media folder and not in the /mnt/iso...

It depends on how you mounted it but look at the following location:

/home/your_user_name/.gvfs

It's in a "hidden" directory. To view it in Nautilus: Nautilus > Edit > Preferences > Views > Show hidden and backup files.
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.

you can run

Code: Select all

mount -l
to see where everything on your system is mounted. I usually just manually mount .iso's manually:

Code: Select all

mkdir mounted
sudo mount -o loop image.iso mounted/
and then when you're done

Code: Select all

sudo umount mounted/
rmdir mounted
