This tutorial explains how to mount ISO files in Linux
. An ISO image typically stores the content of a CD or DVD as a single file. To view the content of an ISO image in Linux, you must first mount it. There are two methods:
Open a Terminal and then create a mounting point (empty folder) using the mkdir folder_name
You can then mount your ISO images with the below command:
sudo mount /path_to_ISO_file /mount_point/
In some cases you will need to make a slight modification to the command:
sudo mount -o loop /path_to_ISO_file /mount_point/
If you are using Ubuntu, then the easiest way to mount ISO images is with Gmount
(Gnome ISO Mounter). Open the Synaptic Package Manager
, search for Gmount
and install it on your system.
Launch the application, create a Mount Point
and select the ISO file you want to mount.
