I just found a very simple way to mount ISO images in Ubuntu without having to install any complicated software. A throughout tutorial is provided at Ubuntugeek.com. In fact the tutorial is so good that I felt guilty to copy it over. Sorry. Follow the instructions, you will get it. Below is a brief instruction on how to mount ISO images using scripts. Again, this is totally from Ubuntugeek.com, so make sure you give them some credits. (and yes, I felt guilty for doing this, but I just didn’t want you to stop by for nothing.)
Using Nautilus Scripts
- Download 2 scripts: Mount ISO images and Unmount ISO images.
- Save the files to your Home directory because my codes below will prefer to that directory.
- Open Terminal: Application -> Accessories -> Terminal
- We need to change the permission to use the scripts downloaded above.
Note: substitute your username into “username.”
- Now we need to move them to nautilus scripts
sudo chmod +x /home/username/mount.sh
sudo chmod +x /home/username/unmount.sh
sudo mv /home/username/mount.sh ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/
sudo mv /home/username/unmount.sh ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/
Now, every time you right-click, there will be an option named Scripts. You can mount and unmount ISO images by selecting the options.
