Ubuntu – How to mount an ISO file


I'm running into trouble trying to mount a large iso:

dev@dev-OptiPlex-745:~$ sudo mount -o loop /home/dev/Hämtningar/matlab2011a_64.iso /cdrom
mount: warning: /cdrom seems to be mounted read-only.

Can you tell me how I should do it?

  • Try mounting it using a GUI.

    Navigate to the *.iso file using a file manager, then Right click -> Open with Archive Mounter.

    Or you can install the Furius ISO Mount. It is available in the Ubuntu Software Center:

    sudo apt-get install furiusisomount
