How to mount or unmount a ISO file in Ubuntu

📅 2013-Feb-07 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

One option to mount and unmount ISO files in Ubuntu is to use the fuseiso package. First install the package using the name fuseiso.

To mount a ISO file, first create a directory where it can be mounted and then mount it:

$ mkdir dir-to-mount-iso
$ fuseiso foo-disc.iso dir-to-mount-iso

To unmount the ISO file, unmount the directory where it was mounted:

$ fusermount -u dir-to-mount-iso

Tried with: fuseiso 20070708 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
