gnome-disk-image-mounter — Attach and mount disk images


gnome-disk-image-mounter [--writable] [URI...]


gnome-disk-image-mounter can be used to set up disk images. Both regular files and GVfs URIs (such as smb://filer/media/file.iso) can be used in the URI parameter. If no URIs are given and a window server is running, a graphical file chooser will be presented.

Note that gnome-disk-image-mounter will not mount filesystems or unlock encrypted volumes in the disk image - this responsibility is left to the automounter in GNOME Shell to ensure that the same interactions happen as if the disk image was a regular physical device or disc.

By default the disk images are attached read-only, use the option --writable to change this.

Return Value

gnome-disk-image-mounter returns 0 on success and non-zero on failure.
