View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mounting/Installing .img files

March 7th, 2012, 07:40 PM
I have been attempting to install Papercut on my computer {Ubuntu 11.10}, however the people who created the papercut system I need to connect to only provide access to the .dmg and .exe versions of Papercut. I downloaded the .exe version and ran it with wine, but it couldn't connect to the wireless printer system, so I attempted to mount the .dmg version. I got as far as converting it to a .img file, but I can't get the .img file to mount. I tried
sudo mount -t hfsplus -o loop mac-papercut.img /mnt/img

and got back

wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Which was perhaps the closest I got to the correct command. Does anyone know what the correct fs type is or what I'm doing wrong?
