XFCE Thuner: Mount ISOs from right click menu

Postby ^rooker » Sun Nov 25, 2018 12:38 am

UPDATE:
This is obsolete!
There's a way better way to do it, which seems to exist out-of-the-box in Xubuntu 16.04.
See details in replied thread below.

Here's a slightly adapted/improved version of this answer on AskUbuntu. about how to mount disk images (ISO) from the GUI file explorer Thunar in XFCE/Xubuntu.

In Thunar, add a new Custom Action:
Edit > Configure custom actions > (+)PLUS icon

Then, enter the following to execute as command:
Code: Select all
mkdir /tmp/%n.mount & fuseiso %f /tmp/%n.mount & ln -s /tmp/%n.mount ~/Desktop/%n.mount

This creates a folder per ISO file in /tmp, then mounts it (fuseiso) and creates a symbolic link on the Desktop.

Beware: You have to unmount the images manually after you're done.

XFCE Thunar: "Disk Image Mounter"

Postby ^rooker » Mon Nov 26, 2018 8:41 pm

When you right-click an ISO image file, to select "Open With > Open With Other Application", choose the option "Disk Image Mounter":
xfce-disk_image_mounter.png
XFCE Thunar: Disk image mounter to mount ISO files.


Now, the mounted ISO will just appear like any other external storage media (e.g. usb stick) in the "Devices" panel, left in Thunar.
For unmounting, simply right-click and unmount the image name there :D 8)


Thanks XFCE-devs!
