How to mount a disk IMG file from the GUI??
Comandante Ñoñardo commented on 14 May 2018 at 7:17 am UTC

You know... Right click on the xxxxx.IMG file and voilá, mounted..

I tried with right click "Open With", and select “Disk Image Mounter.” and it throw me an error..

Error mounting /dev/loop0p6 at /media/carlos/Videos: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1001,gid=1001" "/dev/loop0p6" "/media/carlos/Videos"' exited with non-zero exit status 21: ntfs-3g-mount: mount failed: Permiso denegado Failed to sync device /dev/loop0p6: Error de entrada/salida Failed to close volume /dev/loop0p6: Error de entrada/salida (udisks-error-quark, 0)

Disk Image Mounter is a bit picky about the images that it will mount. A simple "mount -o loop file.img /mnt" (as root) accepts much more.

I used gCDEmu.

Is an image of en entire NTFS HDD with few partitions what I want to mount.

It didn't work... mount: Hitachi-HTS545025B9A300-2018-05-13-2339.img: failed to setup loop device: No existe el archivo o el directorio

The image file is on an external drive, by the way.

Update: I made a typing mistake in the console with the name of the image...

Now I have another error...

Failed to mount '/dev/loop0': Argumento inválido The device '/dev/loop0' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?

theres acetone iso named program try that maybe. i used to use it back in the days when disk image mounter gave troubles.

haven't noticed any problems with the default one lately though, just doubleclick on iso and its mounted

When I type
fdisk -l Hitachi-HTS545025B9A300-2018-05-13-2339.img

This is what I got:

I had to do the same a while ago. You can't mount the whole disk at once.

With that, will the mounted partition appear on desktop like a USB drive?

Interesting. While I know kpartx works with an LVM device on Linux, I've never tried it on a .img with multiple partitions. I'll have to give it a shot and see if it does, because that'd simplify this.

Or you could try it kpartx -av $image_file

Basically, yes. I had to mount partitions somewhere at /media to let them show up in Thunar but you can also navigate to your mountpoint anytime.

I'm gonna have a look at kpartx later. That might be indeed simpler!
