Is there in Lenny/stable repos, a package that let users "mount" ISO files? [SOLVED]


I would like that users can also use ISO files, and fake that they are like a cdrom.

It is for wine

KDE supports this natively. Just right-click on the ISO image and select “Actions >> ISO9660 View” and it should open up a new window with the contents for the ISO image. The only drawback is, the file has to be named with the extension .iso, else the context sensitive menu “ISO9660 View” does not appear.

Neat - there are other ways to make mount available to the user for just isos, but the fuse approach looks like an elegant one.

If you can, use sudo to run that mount command. If not, you can use the KDE option (wine is for running Windows binaries - if all the dependencies are installed, you will have no problem running KDE apps in Gnome). I also did some Googling and found this, but I make absolutely no assurances about it.

after googling, I found that fuseiso is in the repositories of debian lenny.

it means that we can use that after
adduser username fuse

i guess, but still no idea how to use it

fuse is complex

Well, if you can add a user (or, for that matter, install any software), you can go the normal route and just mount it. Do you or don't you have the root password to this machine? If so, do you have sudo set up?

OK, guys,

after googling and compiling, this is the ultimate solution, no need of root.

(1)
Code:
apt-get install mono-gmcs  gtk-sharp2  fuseiso
you also need those packages:
Code:
dpkg -l | grep fuse
ii  fuse-utils                           2.7.4-1.1                      Filesystem in USErspace (utilities)
ii  fuseiso                              20070708-1                     FUSE module to mount ISO filesystem images
ii  libfuse2                             2.7.4-1.1                      Filesystem in USErspace library

(2)
Code:
adduser username fuse
chgrp fuse /dev/fuse
(3)
reboot

(4)
then install this deb:
GUI GTK for fuseiso

then
in the console, type:
Code:
$ furiusisomount
(5)
then a gui appears, and pray that it doesn not display
Code:
fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied
Enjoy !! Working and made for debian stable/lenny

... after all that, it would be a bummer.

Since you want to be able to access the iso content from WINE, you only need fuseiso - no need for the gui.
Code:
simon@indigo-prime:ISOs$ sudo apt-get install fuseiso
simon@indigo-prime:ISOs$ mkdir ~/isomnt
simon@indigo-prime:ISOs$ fuseiso gnewsense-livecd-deltah-2.0.iso ~/isomnt
simon@indigo-prime:ISOs$ ls ~/isomnt
casper  isolinux  LIVECD_VERSION  README
... works for me.

Just configure an additional fake HDD in WINE for the mountpoint.

I was originally thinking in terms of adding an exception in sudoers to allow a user to execute just that mount command but this is more elegant.

I use now furiusisomount and fuse, with a GUI, it is a marvellous work. It works so well, I love it.
It is far better than gnome-isomount thing.
(as delayed above in my mini howto)
