    If all else fails, you could try a symlink.

    Re: HOWTO: Nautilus Script to mount .iso files

    is it possible to make it that when the icon of the mounted iso appears on my desktop, i can unmount by letting the script run on the icon of the desktop?


    thanks

    Why not also make a script to mount .nrg's and .bin/.cue's?

    Unfortunately linux can't do that (correct me if I'm wrong). You would need to convert the .nrg or .bin/.cue files to .iso and then work from there. You can use nrg2iso & bchunk (Both in Synaptic).

    Linux can actually do that, unfortunately only a few know how.

    A few months ago I downloaded a huge .nrg file and successfully mounted it after Googling for many, too many hours really.
    Instead of mounting with "iso9660" you're supposed to type "type2978" or something like that - I'm afraid I don't remember exactly.

    Would anyone with more knowledge about this subject be so kind to help us here?

    The scripts wheren't working for me under Dapper. Turns out gksudo was seg faulting. Pulling out the
    Code:
    -u root -k
    fixed that.

    I also found a mount-iso 0,9,1 for KDE that claims to handle iso, bin, cue, xdvdfs, nrg but, haven't looked too far into it yet.

    Questions...

    How can I unmount by right clicking on the desktop icon instead of the orginal iso?

    Can the desktop icon be a cd instead of a hd?

    I recently wrote a similar script for Nautilus which handles both mounting and unmounting of images in the same script. It also allows you to unmount the image by right-clicking on the desktop icon or the image itself. It's supposed to support .nrg files but that functionality is currently untested... Anyone care to test it and report back? If so, let me know and I'll post it to a new thread.

    And yes. You can change the desktop icon for the mounted image. Simply mount it as normal and once the default icon for it appears, simply right-click it and select, "Properties" from the menu. In there you can select a custom icon for it. However, you'll have to do it on a per-image basis since the change won't be applied across the board. I did notice that selecting a custom icon for a particular image is persistant though.

    Cool script. Works good so far. I'm looking for a nrg to test it with, but mount and unmount work great so far.
