Opening iso files. SpaceFM, File-roller

Post#1 by mt12345 » 07 Jul 2014, 19:14

Trying to open iso file in archiver to extract one file from it.
'An error occurred during loading archive'

Then I find 'mount iso' option in spacefm right click menu.
'Mounting a disc image file requires udevil to be installed'

# usm -i udevil

Package: udevil-0.4.3-i486-1dj.txz (86 K) [installed]

when I run spacefm as root, I get:
udevil denied root is not in allowed group

mloop works fine.
Spacefm>Tools>Mount ISO works fine.

It is strange that udevil is not included in razor since it is in my list of packages. udevil is a utility designed to allow guest to mount without root privileges. In any case to mount an ISO you can use the mount manager found in Porteus Settings Centre or start it with: mount-manager

And apparently it is:

it's just that spaceFM and other apps aren't aware of it.

Does it work for unmounts too?

-update-

Apparently one needs root privileges just to use udevil:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ udevil
bash: /usr/bin/udevil: Permission denied
guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: 
root@porteus:/home/guest# udevil
udevil version 0.4.3
Mounts and unmounts devices without password, shows device info, monitors
device changes.  Emulates udisks1/2 command line usage and udisks1 output.
Usage: udevil [OPTIONS] COMMAND [COMMAND-OPTIONS] [COMMAND-ARGUMENTS]

I CAN open/mount iso files (2 last lines of my first post).
I just want to point out some problems in Spacefm, Fileroller (or maybe in the system).
(Looks like this thread needs to be moved to Bug Reports).

Anyway:
Try to mount iso (right click) when running spacefm as root.

Thanks. Since both spacefm and udevil have been abandoned the next version will probably move away from them.

Since lxde and razorqt are merging we will move toward that option. Whoever takes the task of putting this desktop together will decide on the file manager. I will have to look into file roller.

pcmanfm-qt then ;-)

I wish all gtk apps were replaced one day with qt (both in razorqt and lxqt)
I know it's difficult (if not impossible) - eg. gparted, file-roller or even firefox, but spacefm and evince have some qt alternatives.

Fresh 'install', replaced spacefm with qtfm.
Now how to click-mount pendrives (and CDs)?
'Removable media' applet on panel doesn't work (tooltip: 'no devices are available').

I am able to mount usb drive in terminal as 'guest' but I had to:

# chmod +s /usr/bin/udevil

$ udevil mount /dev/sdb1
udevil: /dev/sdb1 is known to mount - running mount as current user
Mounted /dev/sdb1 at /mnt/sdb1

I can't find EXACT info about it. Is razor-qt discontinued? I know lxle and lxqt will co-exist but someone said 'there is no razorqt anymore'
