    [SOLVED] Unmounting ISO


    I am using Mandriva 2009 KDE4.
    I mounted an ISO file to the mnt folder.
    Unfortunately, I did not specify a sub folder (there was nothing there to begin with) so the mnt folder in root is now the ISO file I mounted. (oops )
    How do I unmount it?

    Unless I misunderstood your question, you're just trying to unmount something, right? Then you do
    Code:
    umount
    followed by the device or ISO you want to unmount, or the directoy. So you could type
    Code:
    umount /mnt
    Also you need root privileges to mount and unmount so use sudo.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks!
    Now, how do I get Xine to read from an ISO of a dvd as if it were an actual dvd?

    Try this tool - I haven't used it, so let us know if it works...

    Play ISO image with Xine Download - Softpedia

    And here is another resource which is more explanatory. Hope this helps, Loy.

    Thanks.
    The tool did not work, but it was useful.
    The discussion on Bitzenbytes was much better.
    What I did was to create a .desktop file where Softpedia said to make it, but not their file, but the one on Bitzenbytes. This way I am able to open the ISO file from Dolphin, as well as Konqueror.
    I will reproduce the final solution here:

    Be sure Xine is added in System Settings to iso files. Open System Settings (or Desktop Settings), Advanced tab->File Associations. Find application/x-cd-image and add xine.

    Now create a new file with the following code:
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    ServiceTypes=application/x-iso
    Actions=PlayISOInXine
    
    [Desktop Action PlayISOInXine]
    Name=Play ISO File in Xine
    Exec=xine -pq --no-splash dvd:/%f
    And save it as play_iso_in_xine.desktop in /home/yourusername/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus.

    Now, when you right click an ISO file, under Actions is an option to play ISO file in Xine.

    Have fun!
