Mount Iso Images Using GUI in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal

There are multiple programs available in *nix that lets you mount iso or other image files without any command line tweaking. Here are two of my personal favorites, interestingly their names are very similar :).

Gmount-iso is a great utility to mount iso images in Linux (Ubuntu 11.04, Fedora etc.). You can install it from command line by doing this:

sudo apt-get install gmountiso

The usage is very simple, you don’t have to do terminal hacking, via very simple GUI.

Select the ISO file that you want to mount by clicking on Open, next select a location where you want to mount the iso image. You can choose /cdrom or any other folder which you have permissions to access and just hit the Mount button and the image would be mounted at that location and you can access it via Nautilus or through terminal. After you are done, you can just hit Unmount and the image would be unmounted.

An alternative can be gISOMount which not only lets you mount CDs, but also has an MD5 calculator and also allows you to burn the ISO file to a CD. You can install it in Ubuntu Natty by doing

sudo apt-get install gisomount
