Thread: Application for mounting isos?

  1. #1

    Default Application for mounting isos?

    Do GNOME and KDE come with a default application or function for mounting iso or other kind of images? If not, what would be a good application to install?
    Thanks.

    I got you covered with a bash script you can download: ISOMount - Allows you to mount and Browse ISO Files - Version 1.00 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    I ask you read the blog for how it works. You can open up terminal, copy the next line in and press enter to get the bash script.

    Code:
    rm ~/bin/isomount ; wget -nc http://paste.opensuse.org/view/download/28322886 -O ~/bin/isomount ; chmod +x ~/bin/isomount

    I would recommend AcetoneISO:
    AcetoneISO - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    It's available in the KDE:Extra repository.

    And the basic functionality of course is included in the kernel, so yes, openSUSE does come with the possibility of mounting ISOs:
    Code:
    sudo mount xxx.iso mountpoint

    I tend to do this from a terminal window, fuseiso or "sudo mount -t
    iso9660 [file] [mount point]" work fine for me.

    @jdmcdaniel3:
    Does it work on openSUSE 12.3, and will it on 13.1? What if I don't want desktop icon?

    @everyone else:
    Sorry, I'm not familiar with the mount command... I'm a bit confused. For the case of mounting isos or other kind of cd/dvd images, what would be the actual syntax?
    sudo mount xxx.iso mountpoint ??
    sudo mount -t iso9660 [file] [mount point] ??
    Is "iso9660" the actual type?
    On mount point, can I specify any location?

    Oh, and by using this command method, would it be equivalent to right-clicking the iso file and selecting "open with disk image mounter"?

    Both is correct.
    You don't have to supply the -t option, mount should be able to determine the type itself.

    Is "iso9660" the actual type?
    For a CD ISO image, most of a time.
    But it could also be udf.

    On mount point, can I specify any location?
    Yes, but it has to exist.

    Oh, and by using this command method, would it be equivalent to right-clicking the iso file and selecting "open with disk image mounter"?
    Yes.

    When using GNOME, no icon is placed on the desktop, but should be in your application listings and is designed to work for you withing having to open up terminal and executing a command you no longer remember but open up terminal and input a single word terminal command to run.

    You can mount isos or any type of images, since ever. It is a native
    Linux functionality. CDs, DVDs, floppy images, hard disk images, etc.

    > sudo mount xxx.iso mountpoint ??


    yes

    > sudo mount -t iso9660 [file] [mount point] ??


    yes

    > Is "iso9660" the actual type?


    yes, but you don't need supply it. It can be auto detected.

    > On mount point, can I specify any location?


    Any location at all, as long as it exists. It doesn't need to be an
    empty directory; however, the contents disappear from sight as you mount
    the image.


    Even more, you can write to the mounted system is it is RW, ie, not a
    CD/DVD.

    You can do things like create an image the size of a DVD in, say, msdos
    format, and mount it RW; and later, burn that image to a DVD, which in
    turn, can be opened in any linux system. Ie, you can create DVDs without
    using the ISO format but any other format you choose. Even encrypted.

    Happy to hear of your success. Did you try out my bash script by chance?
