ISOMount is a bash script (works with openSUSE 12.1 & 12.2) written to be launched from the KDE or GNOME desktop to allow the mounting of any ISO file, thus allowing you to be able read any file from within. When you first start ISOMount, you will see a screen like this:
ISOMount creates a new local folder in your home area called mnt (as in ~/mnt or /home/username/mnt). When you run ISOMount, you get a small screen telling you that you can mount or remove an already mounted ISO file. To unmount an ISO file, just select the very same one a second time and the ISO file will be unmounted and the folder for it removed. In order to start using ISOMount just Copy and Paste the text of this script into a text editor and save it as the file isomount in your home area bin folder (~/bin/isomount). The script is too large to be posted in a message here and is included in SUSE Paste.
Open the above Link in a new Tab. Select the Download option in the top right and then select Open With Kwrite or other text editor and then save the bash script text file as ~/bin/isomount. It is possible to directly download isomount using the following terminal command (You must delete or remove the old version first):
ISOMount must be marked executable in order to be useable. Open up a terminal session after you have saved ISOMount and run the following command:
chmod +x ~/bin/isomount
It is possible to download and create ISOMount with a single command. Copy the following command, open up a terminal session, paste it in and press enter:
rm ~/bin/isomount ; wget -nc http://paste.opensuse.org/view/download/28322886 -O ~/bin/isomount ; chmod +x ~/bin/isomount
To use ISOMount, you can run the terminal command:
Or, you can do an Alt-F2 in KDE and enter isomount. Once the icon is on your desktop, just click it with your mouse to start ISOMount. As always, I want to hear any questions or comments about using ISOMount.
