Mounting images in KDE


Just wanted to know how to mount an ISO from a windows directory in KDE/Gnome, running Mandrake 10.1, KDE 3.2. I use KDE for the most part.

Thanks.

I don't know how to do it in the GUI, but doing it in the CLI is a piece of cake.

$ mount -o loop name_of.iso /mnt/point

Open a console (I'm pretty sure it's called Konsole in KDE)

And simply type the commands I specified.

Code:
$ mount -o loop name_of.iso /mnt/point
You may need to be root to mount it, so

Code:
$ su
password:
NOTE: $ just denotes the terminal, you aren't actually typing a '$', it just says you type the following stuff in the CLI.

mount -o loop -t udf /path/to/img /mnt/point (i suppose you can use iso9660 as well)
and yes you need to be logged in as root.
I found a nice little program that with a right click, you can mount images (ISO's), as for img, it was a little different.

and it took me over an hour (Figured i'd get a faster answer here from the guru's) to find it, but
