Mount ISO as disc

Postby facade47 » Thu Feb 21, 2008 7:38 pm

A simple request:
To be able to right click an iso image and have the context menu show "Mount as CD"

XFCE CE already has this and I would like to see it in the main as well.

Perhaps with nautilus-actions something could be done. But I'm afraid only for mounting the ISO; to unmount you should go to a terminal. I've not tested yet.

Anyway, I agree as well. I would love a MacOS system in which with a simple double-click you could mount a CD image (why just keep on ISO ;)). Nice feature request, indeed.

For XFCE CE this could be easy to do.
Just need to now the commands to mount those to a folder.
Then have a script check the file type to select the mount command.
Not sure how easy it would be for Gnome, since I haven't tried.

You can always mount an iso with the CLI command:

Code: Select all

mount -o loop -t iso9660 foo.iso /mountpoint


As was mentioned above, the GTK program "gmountiso" is available in the repositories.

This also looks interesting but I have never used it so I don't know how serviceable it is.

Ive been using acetone2 to mount both my .iso and .mdf files works pretty good but i'd prefer the right click option for sake of size and simplisity.

There are several scripts for that function and several others. I agree, I'd like to have them included by default (doesn't use much space, too). But it would be nice to have choice while installing Mint, so that you doesn't have to use every script.

same, but maybe install 1 simple script by default (I beg of you, CALL IT mintMOUNT! :wink: ) and add other scripts to the software portal.
