[https://sourceforge.net/projects/fuseiso/ FuseISO] is a [[FUSE]] module to let unprivileged users mount [[wikipedia:ISO_9660|ISO]] filesystem images (''.iso'', ''.nrg'', ''.bin'', ''.mdf'' and ''.img'').
  
==Introduction==

== Installation ==
Normally, when you want to mount an image, you have to become root using su or sudo. This is quite inconvenient. But luckily there is [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_in_Userspace FUSE] (Filesystem in Userspace).

Using FUSE to mount image files is easy enough. Just install the fuseiso package:

fuseiso <imagefile> <mountpoint>

FuseISO is a FUSE module to let unprivileged users mount ISO filesystem images (.iso, .nrg, .bin, .mdf and .img).

Installation

Install the fuseiso package.

Usage

Mounting

To mount an image:

$ fuseiso image directory

The destination mount point must be writable and have no other mounted files or devices to it.

Run fuseiso -h for all the available options.

Unmounting

To unmount the image:

$ fusermount -u directory

The command can be used to disconnect other storage devices mounted by other mount tools.

Integration

GNOME Files

For users of GNOME there is an easy way of using fuseiso from the nautilus-context menu.

First you will need the filemanager-actions package, then you need to save the following scripts to a folder of your choice (e.g. ~/.local/bin/):

filemanager-actions-iso-mount.sh
 #!/bin/bash
 
 FILE=$(basename "$1")
 MOUNTPOINT="$HOME/Desktop/$FILE"
 
 fuseiso -p "$1" "$MOUNTPOINT"
filemanager-actions-iso-umount.sh
 #!/bin/bash
 
 FILE=$(basename "$1")
 MOUNTPOINT="$HOME/Desktop/$FILE"
 
 fusermount -u "$MOUNTPOINT"

Make them executable:

$ chmod +x /path_to_scripts/filemanager-actions-iso-*

Now, start fma-config-tool (System > Preferences > Nautilus Actions Configuration).

Add a new action with the following settings:

  • Label: Mount ISO
  • Icon: A symbol of your choice (eg: gtk-cdrom)
  • Path: /path_to_scripts/filemanager-actions-iso-mount.sh
  • Parameters: %F
  • Working directory: %d
  • Basenames: *.iso ; *.nrg ; *.bin ; *.img ; *.mdf (for each add a seperated entry)
  • Match case: "must match one of"
  • Mimetypes: */*

With this action you can mount ISO-images to your Desktop. It will create a folder in ~/Desktop with the name of the iso. fuseiso will mount the iso to this folder.

And a second one:

  • Label: Unmount ISO
  • Icon: A symbol of your choice (eg: gtk-cdrom)
  • Path: /path_to_scripts/filemanager-actions-iso-umount.sh
  • Parameters: %F
  • Working directory: %d
  • Basenames: *.iso ; *.nrg ; *.bin ; *.img ; *.mdf (for each add a seperated entry)
  • Match case: "must match one of"
  • Mimetypes: */*

This second action will unmount the mounted iso and remove the folder from the desktop.

Sometimes you have to logout to be able to mount any image of the given types simply by right clicking it in Files and selecting Mount ISO. To unmount it again, just right click the corresponding folder on your desktop and select Unmount ISO.

Nemo

Nemo as a file browser has a packaged function on right click to mount an iso. unmount is done by clicking on the respective icon of the mounted iso, just like one would do for USB drives.
