    [SOLVED] Can't get rid of virtual drives (mounted ISO's)

    I tried to mount an ISO with Acetone2iso and now i cant get rid of the drives. The drive failed to mount (could not access it) but it still created a icon on the desktop and in the "Places" menu. When I try to unmount or delete the drive I get this:

    Code:
    Unable to unmount 1
    umount: /home/adlin5000/.local/share/Trash/files/virtual-drives/1 is not mounted (according to mtab)
    Any suggestions?

    Check out your fstab file... sudo vi /etc/fstab if it lists the drive it may still try to access it.

    Actually, the best way to find details of what's mounted is to type
    Code:
    mount
    You can then unmount it as it's listed there, using sudo if necessary.

    Thanks for the input.

    Apparently I found a way to fix it. I had to uninstall Acetone2iso, move the "Virtual drives" folder to the trash(it would not delete yet), reboot a few times, reinstall Acetone2iso, mount a different image and unmount it, reboot a few more times and then they went away finally.

    Not sure what parts of that actually helped, but it worked.

    I had the same problem and solved it without uninstalling Acetoneiso2.

    check the fuseiso mounted folders
    Code:
    mount
    you will get a list of mounted devices and between them something like:

    Code:
    fuseiso on /home/test/virtual-drives/dvd type fuse.fuseiso (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=test)
    unmount device using:

    Code:
    fusermount -u /home/test/virtual-drives/dvd
