    HOWTO: Nautilus Script to mount .iso files

    I recently found a nautilus shell script on an older post to the forum that could mount .iso files, but it couldn't handle spaces in filenames or mount more than one file at once. After some struggle I've come up with these scripts which handle multiple concurrent mounts and filenames with spaces. You'll want to save these under ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ and make them executable:

    Mount:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    #
    # nautilus-mount-iso
    
    gksudo -u root -k /bin/echo "got r00t?"
    
    sudo mkdir /media/"$*"
    
    if sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 "$*" /media/"$*"
    then
            if zenity --question --title "ISO Mounter" --text "$* Successfully Mounted.
            
            Open Volume?"
            then
                    nautilus /media/"$*" --no-desktop
            fi
            exit 0
    else
            sudo rmdir /media/"$*"
            zenity --error --title "ISO Mounter" --text "Cannot mount $*!"
            exit 1
    fi
    Unmount:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    #
    for I in "$*"
    do
    foo=`gksudo -u root -k -m "enter your password for root terminal
    access" /bin/echo "got r00t?"`
    
    sudo umount "$I" && zenity --info --text "Successfully unmounted /media/$I/" && sudo rmdir "/media/$I/"
    done
    done
    exit0
    To use either one just right click on the .iso file and use scripts -> mount. Hope someone finds this useful. Does anyone know if there's a way to make nautilus just unmount by right clicking on the volume icon on the desktop and selecting unmount volume?

    I have added these scripts to the Ubuntu Document Storage Facility

    Re: HOWTO: Nautilus Script to mount .iso files

    One problem with this script, is, that if it is not possible to mount the iso file, it still creates a directory in /media. And it is not deleted. This can lead to heavy "clutter" after a while.

    I am going to see if I can use this to get a LIVE USB setup working that we are trying in thread 71567

    Re: HOWTO: Nautilus Script to mount .iso files

    This doesn't work with any ISO file that is outside your home directory, other than that, great script

    Re: HOWTO: Nautilus Script to mount .iso files

    No, those are defective
    gksu segfaults with -k root, i don't think it needs it anyway. also, it attempted for me to create directories with the full path, which is not what i want. so, here's a quick fix and a cleanup.
    Mount:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    #
    # nautilus-mount-iso
    
    gksudo -k /bin/echo "got r00t?"
    BASENAME=`basename "$*"`
    sudo mkdir /media/"$BASENAME"
    echo $BASENAME
    
    if sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 "$*" /media/"$BASENAME"
    then
            if zenity --question --title "ISO Mounter" --text "$BASENAME Successfully Mounted.
    
            Open Volume?"
            then
                    nautilus /media/"$BASENAME" --no-desktop
            fi
            exit 0
    else
            sudo rmdir /media/"$BASENAME"
            zenity --error --title "ISO Mounter" --text "Cannot mount $BASENAME!"
            exit 1
    fi
    Unmount:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    #
    BASENAME=`basename "$*"`
    foo=`gksudo -u root -k -m "enter your password for root terminal access" /bin/echo "got r00t?"`
    sudo umount /media/"$BASENAME" && zenity --info --text "Successfully unmounted /media/$BASENAME/" && sudo rmdir "/media/$BASENAME/"
    cleaned up the unmount code, BTW.

    sudo umount /media/"$BASENAME" && zenity --info --text "Successfully unmounted /media/$BASENAME/" && sudo rmdir "/media/$BASENAME/"
    cleaned up the unmount code, BTW.

    Here's an easy fix to get rid of the .iso from mounted images.
    Replace:
    Code:
    BASENAME=`basename "$*"`
    with:
    Code:
    BASENAME=`basename "${1%.*}"`
    That's just string chopping. It tells the shell to cut off anything after the (.).

    Edit: The umount script does'nt work if the directory name does'nt have the .iso on it so here's the fix.

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    #
    ImgDir="${1%.*}"
    for I in "$1"
    do
    foo=`gksudo -u root -k -m "enter your password for root terminal
    access" /bin/echo "got r00t?"`
    
    sudo umount "$I" && 
    zenity --info --text "Successfully unmounted /media/$I/" && 
    sudo rmdir "/media/$ImgDir"
    done
    done
    exit0
