    How to mount .img file

    Hey, after searching online I can't seem to find anything on .img files.

    I can mount .iso fine because I use a GUI, haha, but I don't know how to mount .img files... is there a GUI for that or some simple command? (Only simple commands because really, I don't like to use the terminal if I can help it!)

    Thanks!
    If money disappeared tomorrow I would be happy.
    Using Ubuntu 9.10 and not quite loving it.

    Re: How to mount .img file

    If I'm not mistaken, Acetoneiso can mount (or convert) .img files:

    http://www.acetoneteam.org/

    It will need some dependencies which won't get resolved automatically (at least not last time i checked), andwhich I don't quite remember. If you do dpkg -i the deb file it will tell you the dependencies (which you can then install from the repos).

    You'll probably neven need any image mounting software afther this.
    Wish I could prove I love you, but does that mean I have to walk on water?
    When we are older you'll understand it's enough when I say so, and maybe some things are that simple.

    You can mount it if it was TAO:
    Code:
    mkdir ~/img
    mount -t udf filename.img ~/img -o loop

    Hey thanks! This works great!

    The dependencies installed automatically, so was no hassle! I had fun playing the game I wanted to mount... hehe!

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Acetoneiso is now in the repo, so Ubuntu 11.10 can install right from Ubuntu Software Centre.
